What is a rail junction upgrade?

Rail junction upgrades are rail works projects designed to improve rail systems and corridors. A rail junction is, by definition, a point at which two or more rail lines intersect or diverge from one another. Junctions are often located at or close to stations to facilitate expanded route capacity and rail efficiency. At Hi-Range Crane Forks, we can assist with comprehensive rail junction upgrades across New South Wales.


A rail junction upgrade is a complicated process, typically involving multiple contractors and many moving parts. Upgrade projects typically involve track works designed to improve rail route efficiency. For example: the separation of freight and passenger lines can minimise the down time required when trains must give way to one another. A junction upgrade could also include the integration of an additional rail route into an existing junction. Hi-Range Crane Forks provide top quality rail works services and can ensure that your next junction upgrade is a success.


Well-executed junction upgrades are all about efficiency - making sure that the right contractors and equipment is in place at the right time to ensure minimal downtime for rail routes. At Hi-Range Crane Forks, we provide a comprehensive range of plant and equipment for hire that ensure industry-leading results on any kind of junction upgrade. Our fleet of top quality hi-rail cranes, hi-rail elevated work platforms, hi-rail trucks, and telehandlers are all custom designed to work on rail tracks. We can provide wet hire packages with skilled operators, as well as dry hire packages for businesses with their own qualified operators. No matter what equipment you require for your next rail junction upgrade, Hi-Range Crane Forks has you covered.

Potential upgrade downfalls to keep an eye out for

While the outcome of a well-executed rail junction upgrade is always positive, there can be potential hazards and pitfalls which may occur throughout the course of each project. These issues range from frustrating to potentially dangerous. The most common issue which can arise while carrying out rail junction upgrades is damage caused by using improper machinery or employing underqualified contractors. Disorganisation like this incurs the risk of improperly installing or damaging infrastructure or materials - which can have immediate ramifications or go unnoticed and cause further damage down the track. Although time is often of the essence when it comes to rail junction upgrades, it is absolutely vital that arrangements are made to contract an expert team equipped with high-quality machinery, like the team at Hi-Range Crane Forks.
