Thorough Track Inspections
It’s always more cost-effective to avoid problems than to fix them when they occur. So Road & Rail Services offers full track inspection services performed by qualified, seasoned track inspectors armed with advanced tools such as ultrasonic rail testing to identify hidden defects, as well as wide gauge, poor tie condition, FRA infractions or other issues that could affect performance or compliance. Each inspection is documented in a written report which includes details of any problems identified, photos of defects, recommended corrective action and an estimate for any work needed.
