Associated Infrastructure JEE157

Rozelle - Sydney


There is a great deal of infrastructure in the rail corridor which is not part of the track itself but are essential parts of the railway system. That infrastructure includes bridges, buildings, platforms, substations, drainage systems, etc. The broader purpose of track engineering includes the maintenance of such items of infrastructure, so it is important to be able to identify and classify defects which can occur in them.
