KiwiRail is consolidating previous regional ballast supply panels into a single open panel to assure future capacity, standardisation of process; efficiencies and reduced overheads for those suppliers who operate in more than one KiwiRail region.

Suppliers who responded to previous KiwiRail ballast tenders and have signed a new (2020 -2023) ballast supply contract with KiwiRail are invited to join the open panel by a simple application letter in response by email to the tender manager at the time of signing; alternately their new contract will stand.

The Northland Rail Upgrade (NRU) Project aims to address deferred maintenance issues between Swanson and Whangarei to improve asset health and resilience, ease current speed restrictions and enable 18 tonne axle loading to support IMEX freight capability. As part of this programme of works, some of the existing railway ballast materials are required to be replaced.
