Abstract

This paper describes the construction of the earthworks formation and associated drainage for the 861 km long railway line and two marshalling yards at Sishen and Saldanha. The paper outlines the route geology, initial materials investigation, earthworks and drainage design parameters, and the construction of the earthworks and drainage during the period June 1973 to April 1976, with emphasis on the scope of the work carried out under the nine contracts concerned. An insight is given into quality control, the supervision structure and the monitoring of progress with relation to the overall project programme requirements.
