Other interesting info:

R&H was appointed by Xstrata Coal SA for the design
and construction supervision of a new private siding
for their Goedgevonden Mine.
The siding is to take off from the 3rd Coal Line near
the Saaiwater Station, including a Domestic Link. It
will run from the Saaiwater Station, crosses the Coal
line, Saaiwaterspruit, Ogies to Bethal Road (R545)
and terminates in a balloon near the proposed

The four bridges which are being constructed, are all
pseudo-box type bridges, consisting of precast
pretensioned beams and an in situ concrete slab. The
bridges are; a rail-over-road bridge (over R545), a
railway bridge over the Saaiwater Spruit, a rail-over-
rail bridge over existing Spoornet Lines, and a road-
over-rail bridge over the new siding.

Specialist railway consulting company R&H Railway Consultants reports that the private siding project for the Goedgevonden coal mine, in Mpumalanga, has been delayed owing to abnormally high rainfall during the recent rain season.
