Reliability in fence-to-fence rail maintenance services

Consistent and timely rail maintenance services can become difficult to achieve when working with a range of partners, which is where a fence-to-fence partnership really shows its value.

Whilst Swietelsky Rail Australia (SRA) is well-known for our ballast cleaning and associated services , we have also established a reputation for our track works maintenance and rail civil works maintenance.

Combined with the expertise of our skilled team, our sophisticated plant and equipment gives us the capabilities to undertake track inspections, de-vegetation, condition reports, quality assurance and more. By undertaking it as an integrated project, our clients see better value for money, as well as quality outcomes.
