WHILE NOT on the same scale as iron ore production in the Pilbara, high prices are driving the development of new mines in the Mid West region of Western Australia.WestNet Rail, the Babcock & Brown subsidiary that leases and manages Western Australia’s 5 100 km of 1 067 mm and 1 435 mm railway owned by the state government, unveiled on June 28 a proposal that would see output from several mines funnelled on to a single dual-gauge line to the proposed deep-water port at Oakajee near Geraldton.Under this proposal, Oakajee would be served by a new double-track line avoiding Geraldton, and joining the existing WestNet line from Mullewa at Narngulu. The line to Mullewa, currently a single narrow-gauge track, would be rebuilt east of Narngulu as a heavy haul dual-gauge double-track railway designed for high axleloads.Mullewa, 100 km from Oakajee, would become the collecting point for all the proposed mines. It already handles 3 million tonnes a year of iron ore loaded at Ruvidni by Mount Gibson Mining for export through Geraldton Port, and Mid West Iron Ore has contracted for a further 1 million tonnes a year to be loaded at Morawa, 100 km south of Mullewa. Where the tonnage justified it, companies mining iron ore at Koolanooka, Karara and Extension Hill would build narrow-gauge lines into Morawa. WestNet proposes that new standard-gauge lines should be built to Mullewa from ore bodies at Jack Hill and in the Weld Range up to 250 km from Mullewa.
UZBEKISTAN: The first test trains are scheduled to run through the 19·1 km Kamchik Tunnel on April 15, following a ceremony on February 27 which marked the completion of construction works.The tunnel is the key element of the 123 km Angren – Pap railway which is being built at a cost of US$1·9bn to provide an alternative to the road through the 2 200 m high Kamchik Pass. This is currently the only route to eastern Uzbekistan which does not involve transiting Tajikistan. The tunnel is located 114 km east of Toshkent and 1 200 m above sea level. The main bore will carry a single-track electrified railway, with a second smaller bore for emergency evacuation.The tunnel has been built by China Railway Tunnel Group at cost of US$455m, with local companies SPMS-1, Mostootryad-67, PDM Bukhara, Gidrospecstry, Shahtostroy, Husan kon Mukhandis, SUV-75 and ToshSUBVR as subcontractors. An overview of major rail investment projects in Central Asia appears in the March 2016 issue of Railway Gazette International.
INDIA: Plans for the second phase of the Nagpur metro network were formally adopted by the Maharashtra state government on January 8, and the Detailed Project Report submitted to the national government for endorsement.Expected to take four years to build, Phase 2 would add a further 48·3 km of elevated route and 35 stations to the initial lines being delivered by Maharashtra Metro Rail Corp. According to the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, the state has also approved a Rs112bn funding package for the second phase.Phase 2 would see five new sections added to the network. The existing north-south line would be extended north by 13 km from Automotive Square to Kanhan, adding 12 stations, and south for 18·5 km from Mihan to the Butibori industrial estate with 10 stations. The east-west line would be extended east by 3·5 km from Prajapati Nagar to Transport Nagar in the Mahalgaon district, adding three stations. In the west, the line would continue for 6·7 km from Lokmanya Nagar to Hingya, with seven stations, while a 4·5 km branch would diverge northwards from Vasudev Nagar to Datta Wadi, serving three stations.

There’s a big choice, and it’s especially great to see Marvel’s finest make the cut. There are a few different designs too, with some (like Mickey Mouse), being a whole figure, some as a bust and some as a complete figure (but designed more like a caricature). Funko fans may like those ones. Personally, I prefer the full figures or the busts, but that’s the beauty of these – there’s one for almost every taste.

City have now racked up six clean sheets this season, including shutouts in their last three outings.However, Fielding insists his only desire is to see the team victorious at the end of 90 minutes.Speaking on BCTV, Fielding said: “I’m pleased with the clean sheets, of course, but I’m much more interested in getting the W (win) next to the game in our fixture list.“Steely (Luke Steele) did very well against Stoke when he came in and he’s settled with the group easily.“The strength of our squad is coming to the fore at the moment; we’re going well in the league and we’re into the fourth round of the (Carabao) Cup. “City will be hoping a fourth straight clean sheet at Ipswich Town tomorrow (3pm) will go some way to recording a first win at Portman Road since 1978.Fielding added: “It will be a difficult game tomorrow. They’re a strong team, they made an unbelievable start and picked up a big win on Tuesday night (5-2 versus Sunderland).“They’ve certainly got some firepower up front so we will need to be on our guard once more.“We’re in confident mood right now but we don’t want to get that mixed up with complacency. It’s still only September…we’ll be judged in May.“There’s a long way to go yet, with plenty more ups and downs to come – hopefully more ups.”EXCLUSIVE BCTV INTERVIEW
The Robins head to Hillsborough on Sunday (December 22nd, 12pm KO) after what will be eight days of rest, recovery and match planning.Lee Johnson’s men are key to put things right after successive losses to Millwall and Blackburn Rovers at home.“It’s been a good start to the week with the way we have attacked the sessions,” Tommy Rowe said. “What we want to focus on is how we can come back from defeat. Unfortunately for us as a group we have suffered back-to-back at home which is the worst we could do for ourselves and the fans.“It was tough, it’s a time for reflection and to be honest with each other, look and see where we can improve. I think that’s been the foundation of the week as we move towards the [Sheffield Wednesday] game and we will work on the details to put it right.“The loss is something the fans feel, one we feel too so we’re going to go about our work very diligently to put things right. It’s small details, we knew that from the outset, particularly against Blackburn they were getting the one per cents correct and we were getting the basics wrong.“We will look to set the tone in training. When we’ve bounced back really well, we’ve always responded well in training and we’ve taken that into this week.”Rowe now wants to see a performance from the squad, to give the side the best chance of coming away from Yorkshire an early Christmas present in the form of three points.The left-back continued: “Our focus is on performing. We find when we perform, the majority of times we get the right result. The fans want to see a performance, we win well when we’re playing well and we will go out there to put on a performance, to get the three points, because ultimately we’ve done so well so for long and it would be a shame to let that slip.”
