Bespoke Rail Monitoring for the Construction & Railway Industries
A groundbreaking full-service remote railway monitoring solution perfect for meeting the operational or contractual requirements of railway operators or construction contractors.
OPTIMIZE RAILWAY OPERATIONS
A New Way To Optimize Railway Operations & Reduce Construction Risks
Gone are the days of construction contractors needing flagger-controlled access or rail operators sending inspection crews out to check track geometry following severe weather events or during lineside construction activities. Our trackbed intelligent sensors provide you with 24/7 data collection, automated alerts on threshold breaches and access to critical information, whilst keeping boots off the ballast, ensuring maximum safety and reducing costs.
Our Remote Railway Monitoring Services
We provide all of the services needed to revolutionize your rail monitoring and better manage your rail network or railway construction project.
Why Choose Summit Infrastructure?
Lateral Displacement Monitoring for a Western Canadian Transit Agency
Summit provided a western Canadian transit agency with near real-time monitoring on the lateral displacement of a curve that was prone to movement in hot weather.
The system was installed in under an hour with no impact on revenue or service and provided the client with near real-time data and alerts on:
This track monitoring allowed the client to maintain line speed during hot weather with trains only needing to be slowed once increased rail temperature was detected and correlated with lateral movement and potential buckling of the curve. This data was also stored and used to form future hot weather critical rail temperature management plans.
Following the monitoring, the client installed lateral resistance plates from Summit Infrastructure to limit future lateral movement in the tight radius curve.
Track Monitoring for a Construction Contractor Drilling Under A Track
Summit provided track monitoring for a construction contractor that was directional drilling under a CN rail track. The client utilized the system to provide near real-time data with automated alerts reporting every 5 minutes on:
Significant cost savings were realized with a reduction in the amount of in-person on-track surveys required and associated flagger costs. The system ran without any need to enter the track for the duration of the project in all weather conditions including extreme cold and snow cover.
