Project Status - Completed
The Jilalan wagon overhaul facility is located in Sarina Queensland. The new facility represents a $36 million investment by Aurizon to support the continued delivery of safe, reliable services for our coal customers in Queensland.
The purpose-built 7,500 sqm facility will accommodate the decade-long program to overhaul approximately 5,000 of the 106-tonne coal wagons that the Coal business use in Central Queensland.
It incorporates smart technology and work practices including remote-controlled movement of wagons, automated grit blasting facilities and special tools and equipment that enhance employee safety.
Wagon overhaul commenced in August 2020.
