Fugro has been awarded a five-year framework agreement by Network Rail to carry out survey data acquisition and analysis for all High Output track renewal sites across Britain. The contract is a long-term partnership between Network Rail and Fugro that sees Fugro’s train-mounted RILA™ solution removing many hours of on-site activities to deliver highly accurate rail infrastructure information; additional survey services will be provided by UK-based Severn Partnership. The unique technology was first introduced to the High Output function in 2015. RILA provides rapid, route-wide acquisition of data together with value-added imagery and video as a desktop tool. It is now acknowledged as proven technology, certified by Network Rail to Survey Accuracy Band 1A, and was successfully used to deliver data covering over 650,000 yards of renewals sites for workbanks in England, Scotland and Wales. The result was fewer ‘boots on ballast’ and accelerated project delivery times.
