Roy Hill Rail Ballast Supply

BGC Contracting has been involved with the Roy Hill Project since 2011, having secured the Roy Hill Aerodrome, Roads and Rail Contract, followed by the contract for Package 3 – Port Landside. In 2014 BGC would go on to win another package of work in the form of the rail ballast supply contract.


The Package 2 – Track Laying Contract marks the fourth contract awarded to BGC for the Roy Hill Project, a new 5 5tpa iron ore mine at the Roy Hill deposit south west of Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The track laying contract involves manufacturing 1,076,000 tonnes of class H railway ballast. The manufacture is being completed at BGC Contracting’s owned and operated Elazac Quarry, located near Port Hedland.

The scope to complete the railway works includes drilling and blasting of 600,000 BCM of dolerite rock, which will then be broken down, loaded and hauled from the quarry using 30 road trains to transport the product to the client. BGC will also provide NATA testing and stockpiling.
