Rail and transport infrastructure drainage services and management

At UKDN Waterflow, we’ve made it our business to deliver sewerage and water infrastructure solutions in ways which minimise disruption to services affecting rail and public transport.

By constantly sourcing and trialling new technologies and innovative methods, we ensure that we have the most productive, efficient and effective ways of managing rail drainage and transport infrastructure projects — even highly regulated and time-sensitive ones. It’s how we provide the best results for our clients whilst reducing downtime and disruption for transport users.

Our transport drainage sector specialists work on:

  • Rail
  • Underground
  • Roads
  • Motorways
  • Highways
  • Tram systems
  • Airports
  • Individual engineering projects

Qualifications and accreditations for rail and transport drainage services

We hold relevant qualifications, where applicable, in each transport sector. As a long established rail drainage contractor, for instance, this includes RISQS accreditation and Audit. We are especially proud to have been awarded the coveted Network Rail Principal Contractor Licence (PCL) after 15 years as a tier one operator — a measure of our reputation and capability in rail drainage repairs.

Alongside official certification, we have long been acknowledged for knowledgeable and capable managers. A structure with strong field and project management ensures that tasks are kept on track and on budget, every time.

For road projects, we comply fully with Highways Agency Drainage Data Management System (HADDMS) for surveying.

Award-winning standards

We work to the most stringent health and safety and regulatory codes and have awards to prove it. Exceptional operating standards mean we regularly deliver additional benefits and cost efficiencies above and beyond our clients’ main objectives. This approach, along with our ‘Project Server’ system, means we monitor work activity, keep cost and resource targets to plan, and reach, or exceed, the highest quality standards.

Rail Drainage Case Studies

Testimonials

“This rapid action catch pit cleaning programme has proved to be very successful. It has greatly reduced track flood risks, and has been completed at much lower unit cost than if the work had been completed over a longer time period. It has also provided us with a proven methodology for tackling drainage related flood risks along other sections of work.”

Eamonn Maloney, Head of Rail

“On behalf of Network Rail I would like to thank UKDN Waterflow and all of those involved in the vegetation and drainage works at Blatchbridge which is part of my DAMP2 project, from various site visits and the photographs supplied earlier this afternoon I have to say I’m impressed, good quality materials, good scope, good workmanship, good team = Good Job. Thank you for restoring a fully functioning track drainage system which has eradicated many years of neglect, mystery and track quality issues related to the drainage in the Blatchbridge. Keep it up!”
