An Overview

Trenching Systems Australia has purchased a number of Vermeer 1255 TL terrain levellers. These machines are useful in bulk removal of hard rock. They have been successfully used by John Holland Group in the Hunter 8 railway project, as well as the Glenfield to Leppington Rail Line Project in Sydney.
Leightons also have had success with using the machines on the "missing link" railway project in North Queensland.
