Aurizon’s Cyclone Debbie Recovery

Aurizon’s Cyclone Debbie Recovery

In March 2017, Tropical Cyclone Debbie caused widespread damage to the Central Queensland Coal Network (subsequently closing all 4 coal systems simultaneously for the first time in history), resulting in over 800 individual repair sites. This presentation looks into the recovery efforts to safely reopen the network for rail traffic in the shortest possible time, the innovative solutions implemented and the work done to enhance the resilience of the network for future weather events. 

The presentation will be streamed from Rockhampton to Gladstone.
