Surveying Rail Depots
Depot surveys, although part of the railway infrastructure often pose a different set of challenges. Some examples of this would be:
- Typically, depots are open when the railway network is closed.
- Generally, tracks are in a poor condition as maintenance is reduced due to the low speeds permitted.
- Often depots have a collection of varying materials and S&C ages which requires a wealth of experience when trying to identify.
Some depots have stabled stock that cannot be moved – PBH are well versed in selecting appropriate survey techniques to minimise the problems this may cause for a complete survey deliverable.
Depots also require staff to communicate with depot managers to agree local safe-working arrangements on closed/open lines within the depot. This requires a clear understanding of depot layouts to work in close proximity to stabled trains and ensure minimal gaps are left in survey data.
Extensive knowledge of p-way, S&C and depot surveys
