Fugro has developed a suite of remotely acquired technologies to deliver a broad spectrum of survey and investigation services, providing a thorough understanding of the location, attributes and condition of rail assets. Our satellite and aerial mapping, together with track-based laser scanning surveys and a full range of geotechnical and geophysical services can help to assess and evaluate entire rail networks, ranging from sub-millimetre rail wear measurement to characterisation of the underlying geology.

Our RailData solution offering leads to a more joined-up approach to rail surveys, where all data can be used throughout the full life-cycle of the project or life of the asset. These surveys can then be applied for a range of applications including track and signal design and upgrade, electrification, vegetation and slope analysis, asset management and building information modelling.

Survey, engineering and construction support services include:

  • Route-planning and 3D visualisation of proposed routes
  • Absolute track position determination, horizontal and vertical geometry (RILA Track)
  • Train-based, x,y,z location accurate video recording (RILA-video)
  • Train-based 3D laser scanning of tunnels and infrastructure (RILA 360);
  • Terrestrial track measurement, terrestrial 3D laser scanning, computing horizontal and vertical geometry
  • Airborne LiDAR (FLI-MAP) topographic mapping of railway corridors
  • Earthquake hazard analysis
  • Design optimisation and validation
  • Geophysical investigation of geology, geohazards and engineering parameters
  • Borehole geophysics and wireline logging
  • Geotechnical site investigation, cone penetration testing, drilling, sampling and consultancy
  • Analysis of rock, soil and construction materials in fixed and mobile laboratories
  • Survey support during construction
  • Foundation design and testing
  • Bridge foundation construction
  • Onsite inspection and desk-based assessments
Condition monitoring and evaluation services include:
  • Embankment stability surveys
  • Track, rail and signalling and communication (S&C), condition surveys and monitoring (RILA Track)
  • Structural monitoring
  • Geo-referenced video of route (RILA video)
  • High resolution LiDAR from the air (FLI-MAP) or train-mounted vehicles (RILA 360)
  • Network condition surveys and trackbed assessments / evaluations
  • Rapid scanning ground penetrating radar (GPR) trackbed surveys, to determine structure and condition
  • Condition and structural surveys of rail buildings, bridges and tunnels
  • Buried utility mapping
  • Geotechnical site investigation
  • Laboratory analysis of rock, soil and construction materials
  • Data management and GIS services
