The major portionof the work comprising Aspect Three of the coal line project is the strengthening of the existing track to carry 26 t axle loads. This requires the relaying of the line lrom Broodsnyersplaas In the Eastern Transvaal to the harbour at Richards Bay, some 500 route km consisting of 770 km of track.
