Main line junction design and passing loops

Before a proposed junction or passing loop can be designed, a detail survey of the existing track, infrastructure and surrounds needs to be undertaken. Designs for junctions and passing loops take into consideration train speed, rolling stock, proposed turnout types (standard or tangential) and various other criteria required to ensure that the design will satisfy the relevant standards. Whenever Meadows Consulting undertakes these initial detail surveys, our surveyors always keep the design criteria and any perceived site constraints in mind, which means we can invariably uncover cost-saving ideas for our clients during the survey.
