McDowall Affleck were engaged by Ansaldo STS (now Hitachi Rail) to provide structural engineering certification for the rail signalling infrastructure along the 344km railway from the Roy Hill mine to Port Hedland. The structures included signs, boom masts, sun shelters and solar panel frames. We also provided support during the construction phase when it was discovered that the site soil conditions differed from what was anticipated during the design phase.
