Rail Constraints

Waterman has built a considerable expertise in working in close proximity to rail constraints, be they Network Rail, London Underground, Mail Rail or the numerous tramways criss-crossing our cities.

Our engineers are experienced in overcoming the two principal issues commonly associated with working adjacent to or over rail constraint; noise/vibration and infrastructure protection.

Waterman have a specialist team to carrying out the soil structure interaction analyses and subsequent negotiations necessary to progress the Infrastructure Protection agreements. Our experts have established a trusted relationship with the relevant Infrastructure Protection teams, which has proved invaluable in unlocking practical sensible agreements.

We have delivered many schemes both with vibration isolation measures and also which avoid isolation by the careful measurement and prediction of future ground borne vibration levels.
