This Railway Bridge overpass is in the Dampier Region of the Pilbara – a large, dry, sparsely populated region in the north of Western Australia. The project called for replacement of the failed mains powered flood lighting used to illuminate the railway under the bridge.
Rio Tinto transport iron ore via a train line which passes under a bridge near the Dampier Highway. This underpass is used as a night-time inspection point to check for any issues with the train or it’s load. Flood lights mounted off the bridge were no longer functioning, and replacing the mains power supply was not feasible.
