A Worthy Interface – Underground Infrastructure & Rail Corridors

Article written by Brad Hunt – Service Leader Civil & Water Engineering 

Construction and Implementation of Rail interfacing water, power, or communications utility assets can be complex undertakings with multiple factors to consider when passing through the rail corridor, especially at congested corridor sites such as level crossings. There are many engineering and project management process considerations to factor such as KiwiRail engagement, corridor access and permit requirements, railway formation conditions as well as sequencing, production rate and constructability.

Drawing from our extensive experience in a wide range of rail infrastructure projects across Aotearoa, we’ve gained valuable insights into rail corridor utilities. This experience has enabled us to establish strong relationships within the rail industry and refine our design processes to align with a range of stakeholder requirements. Our approach takes into account these intricate aspects, ensuring that our clients’ rail interfacing projects are carried out with minimal surprises.

If you’re embarking on a rail interfacing project and have questions or need preliminary guidance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our regional rail leads.
