We offer the same flexible civil engineering service to the rail industry that has made R&W successful in the highways sector. A number of our senior team members have joined R&W after spending many years working in the rail industry and they bring a wide range of knowledge and experience to this area.
R&W’s founding principle of direct employment and ownership of plant and equipment means that we have a stable and adaptable platform from which we can offer services to rail clients. A strong team of rail experienced staff, supported by the rest of the company allows us to provide a comprehensive civil engineering service with a rich understanding of the specific needs of rail projects to clients in the sector.
When operating as a Tier 2 contractor supporting the Tier 1 main contractors, R&W Rail delivers efficient civil engineering services that allow the main contractor to focus on the rail interface works (such as bridge reconstruction; level crossing replacement; p-way; platform and signalling works). In addition to the delivery of permanent works, we offer support in emergency or urgent situations such as embankment slips, subsidence, flood and tree clearance.
As we own and operate our own plant and transport we can mobilise quickly to install TCVBs and other traffic management equipment.
R&W Environmental supports this by providing a fleet of owned and operated tipper wagons with waste transfer arrangements that are available out-of-hours.
We also produce and install Versablock concrete gabions, which can be deployed as a fast solution to construct retaining walls.
