Clough, as part as the Acciona Clough joint venture, announced that it has been awarded a civil works contract for the construction of the northern rail formation for the Rio Tinto Iron Ore Koodaideri Project. Clough CEO and Managing Director, mr Peter Bennett said “We are excited with the opportunity to work with Rio Tinto Iron Ore to deliver its vision for the Koodaideri Project as we continue to grow our presence in Western Australia’s Iron Ore developments. The execution of this contract will create more than 200 new jobs, with the scope including 100km of rail formation earthworks, culverts, bridge construction, access roads and level crossings. Clough is a proudly Western Australian engineering and construction company with a proven history of delivering world-class projects with outstanding safety and quality results in Australia and overseas.”

The Koodaideri Project is a greenfield mine development for Rio Tinto Iron Ore, in the East Pilbara mining region. The Koodaideri mine will initially be developed with an annual capacity of 43 million tonnes. To allow the transportation of iron ore product to either Dampier or Cape Lambert, the project requires a 170km rail spur to connect the Koodaideri mine to the existing Rio Tinto Iron Ore rail network, just south of Lyre Siding at Numbat.
