SNC-Lavalin’s Track Engineering team offers a comprehensive through-life design service from scope definition to detailed design. Our permanent way designers specialize in alignment and track formation and drainage design across all rail modes, from small-scale track replacement schemes to the alignment of major new build railways.
Our experience covers high speed, intercity, suburban, freight, light rail, metro and depots gained working across the UK’s national and suburban networks and internationally on commissions in the Middle East, Asia and Australasia.
