The first railway tracks have been laid at Gina Rinehart’s Roy Hill project in the Pilbara in northern Western Australia.
Traditional owners held a welcome to country ceremony to mark the development.
A 344-kilometres long railway track will be constructed to get iron ore to port at Port Hedland.
Around 3,000 people are building the $10 billion mine, port and rail project.
Nearly 40 per cent of the project has been completed and first exports are expected next year.
Roy Hill aims to produce 55 million tonnes of iron ore a year.
Meanwhile, the John Holland group has been awarded a $100 million contract to build mine infrastructure for Rio Tinto in the Pilbara.
The project is scheduled for completion in April 2015 and is expected to employ 200 people.
