Upgrading and Rehabilitation of the Aus-Luderitz Railway Line Upgrading and Rehabilitation of the Aus-Luderitz Railway Line

Aus to the Lüderitz harbour railway line (140km) was upgraded to 18.5 ton/axle load. The sand dune problem some 10km outside Luderitz remains a big challenge since the dunes block train operations. Designs to construct a 4.5km sand tunnel to overcome this problem have been completed.
