Abergeldie’s rail teams have reached a new milestone over the April rail close-down in the Hunter Valley, as our teams worked around the clock to simultaneously deliver work packages at Mount Owen, where a 1:15 swingnose right hand turnout was installed, with a full track recon; and at Scone cutting, where 220 metres of track and formation were removed, reconditioned and replaced.

The April works followed up on the Abergeldie teams’ achievements at Kooragang during the February 2017 shut down, where re-railing, points replacement and signalling decommissioning were successfully delivered.

Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure Limited is proud to announce that it has established an office in Northern Ireland.  It further announces today that it has been awarded its first project in Europe, an £8.5 million ($A 14 million) project to renovate historic Killeavy Castle and build  a 42 room, 4 star, boutique hotel, spa and wellness centre adjacent to it.  The Killeavy Castle, in County Armagh, sits majestically on the slopes of Slieve Gullion and is the centrepiece of an historic estate comprising 350 acres of farmland and woods.  The hotel and wellness centre will be built on the site of what once were the Killeavy Castle coach house, mill and farm buildings, and will sympathetically incorporate many of their historic features. The project is expected to be completed in late 2018.

This is an exciting project for Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure to launch its operations in Europe.  Abergeldie intends to, on the back of this project, expand its capability and deliver complex infrastructure and building projects throughout the UK and Europe.

Mick Boyle, Abergeldie Complex Infrastructure Executive Chairman, has said “The Ring of Gullion countryside is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the setting of Killeavy Castle within it is no less than breathtaking. We are certain it will become the jewel of South Armagh and be a special destination for people from all over the world.  Abergeldie is delighted to be involved in such a wonderful project, which will showcase the capability of our company.”

Mark Donohoe, who returned to Northern Ireland after working with Abergeldie in Australia for 5 years, has been appointed as the Project Manager for the Killeavy Castle project.  “We are delighted that Mark, who is both from Northern Ireland and familiar with the Abergeldie way of working, was available to head our team on this very important project for the company” Mick Boyle said.
