An increasing population needs an improved railway infrastructure, not only to aid commuting but also to transport goods as a more environmentally-friendly alternative to road freight. Here at Waterman, we have undertaken several major rail projects, helping to create a safer, more efficient system of railways in the UK.

We have extensive experience in all aspects of railway infrastructure, including station and depot design, maintaining and upgrading structures, heavy and light rail schemes and underground networks.

We work for train operating companies, rail contractors and Network Rail to bring long-term improvements to rail users. We work in partnership with Merseytravel, First Group and Centro and are registered under the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) thanks to our experience and expertise in – and knowledge of – engineering, health and safety and environmental issues.

Unique support
Waterman’s AutorailTM is a unique, highly flexible computer aided Drawing and Data management system that Waterman has designed and continuously developed since 1990. With over 10,000 miles of rail track mapped, the system is used throughout the railway industry.

Making the most of commercial opportunities
Historically, railway stations have always been at the heart of commercial areas; this is still true today. We have particular expertise in developing sites in and around railways to make the most of commercial opportunities, whether in business or residential districts.

Planning for today and tomorrow
A growing need for efficiency, balanced with minimal environmental impacts, poses many challenges for the railways. These needs are going to keep growing as commuters, freight and transit requirements continue to increase. At Waterman, we can help you to meet those needs efficiently and effectively, developing a usable, safe and reliable network for today and for future generations.
