At Murphy Geospatial, we are proud of the quality and accuracy of the data we produce. Our experience and skills are ideally suited for the quality demanded in railway surveys.Contact
Murphy Geospatial have extensive experience delivering railway surveys for multiple stakeholders across the UK and Ireland. We work closely with railway owners, principal contractors, engineers and designers to provide the geospatial certainty they need to safety maintain and construct our railway infrastructure.
We have extensive experience working with Network Rail, Transport for London, Irish Rail, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, Translink, Skanska, Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke, Mott MacDonald, and AMCO, helping them to successfully complete work on the renewal and construction of major projects, including HS2, Crossrail, Luas CrossCity, as well as various station upgrades. We have also mapped the entire Irish Rail network, producing a valued geospatial dataset hosted through a web accessible platform.
We employ a number of different survey types and methodologies to capture the data required by our clients. From aerial survey creating line mapping, orthophotography and digital terrain models to the creation of as-built BIM models from laser scan data; track surveys and gauging, rail monitoring and utility surveying; through to full geospatial management of railway projects, our railway surveys provide geospatial certainty across the project lifecycle.
Rail surveys require accuracy. The design, construction and maintenance and maintenance of railway infrastructure requires accurate survey data to meet the tight tolerances required for safe and efficient operation. Accurate measurement of rail gauge is critical to avoid potential safety issues in their day-to-day operation. Accurate measurement of station platforms is critical so that gaps between trains and platforms are kept to a minimum for the safe boarding and alighting of passengers. Accurate measurement is critical to allow railway operators to understand the dynamic envelope available to their rolling stock through tunnels or past trackside equipment. Murphy Geospatial have the people, process and technology to deliver this accuracy and geospatial certainty in the railway environment.
