For surveying geotechnical track conditions

The customer defines his requirements. Ground Control provides customized results. Our reliable and continuous information are prerequisites for safe and efficient track renewal operations. They are exactly what railway engineers in the world need for planning.

Our GPR survey provides continuous details of track conditions. Railway engineers obtain important information about

  • Thickness of track bed and sub-ballast layer.
  • Sections with clean or fouled ballast.
  • Drainage problems in ballast bed and undertrack.
  • Mapping of load-bearing problems (settlements, ballast pockets).
  • Anomalies along the track.

Quality control of track construction

Track construction is always very cost-intensive. That's why at least the result should add up. Our quality control is continuous and exact. And we provide information about

  • Quality of new ballast (cleanliness).
  • Thickness of track bed and sub-ballast layer.
  • Efficiency of track drainage.
  • Evenness of ballast-bed bottom or sub-ballast layer.
  • Track cross-section.

Don't forget: All these measurements are recorded at the speed required by the timetable.
With any survey speed. Even at 300 kph.

It's well worth comparing SafeRailSystem with other products.
