Project Delivery

RSS Infrastructure’s Track Access division was responsible for decommissioning a Road Rail Access Point (RRAP), which involved the removal of concrete, including a concrete ramp. The debris was stored within the compound and later removed and recycled by a third-party supplier contracted by RSSI for use in additional sub-bases.

The works were carried out under an Any Line Open plan and completed over two weekend shifts and two midweek day shifts, meeting the project’s time and budgetary requirements.


Real-time insight into the inspection was provided to the client through a mobile application utilised by RSS Infrastructure. The application generated shift reports with visual evidence of the works, which were uploaded into cloud storage for multiple users to access.
