Project Delivery

Leveraging their past experience in UTX installations, the RSSI team successfully completed the task for Volker Fitzpatrick. The work was carried out safely and efficiently using the following methodology.

Prior to commencing excavation, the team conducted a CAT scan and obtained necessary permits from the Volker Fitzpatrick supervisor.

RSSI assisted in this process to ensure a prompt start to the project.

After completing the trackside drainage element, RSSI moved on to the installation of bedding and pipes. The team placed geotextile on both sides of the excavation, covering the bottom. Finally, the RSSI team re-installed the sleepers.

All work was completed on time and within the budget requirements.
