Abstract

If one considers that the ballast bed contains approximately 1 200 to 1 600 m3 of ballast stone per kilometre, there is approximately 42 000 000 m3 of ballast in the South African railway network. At an estimated conservative price of approximately R150/m3, the ballast asset value is in excess of R6 300 million, excluding equipment and labour for transportation, installation and regulating.
