Here at Tardis Environmental we’re no strangers to railway welfare servicing. A large number of our tanker fleet are fully Crossrail compliant and our reputation in this field already speaks volumes.
When you consider there’s 9788 miles of networked railway in Britain which is pretty high maintenance, with our expertise working in the environment, we are closely involved with railway maintenance companies.
As Europe’s biggest construction project, Crossrail is working towards reducing journey time and easing congestion in London and the South East with the new railway covering 100km stretching from Reading and Heathrow in the West across to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the East.
You may have read in previous blog posts that a large part of our vehicle fleet is Crossrail compliant, a necessity when working with the Crossrail project but also many other high profile construction projects where more than a cap is doffed to health and safety issues.
Crossrail vehicles carry signage alerting road users especially cyclists and pedestrians, to approach the inside of the vehicle with extreme care. HGVs have under run barriers and Sidescan equipment which senses proximity on the dangerous nearside of a vehicle in motion and provides the minimum of an audible alert in the cab though Tardis vehicles carry a video camera monitoring system so the driver can clearly see any approaching potential hazard. Vehicles which are not equipped to this high specification standard are not allowed to enter or work on Crossrail sites.
Some of the services were offer to railway maintenance companies include tank empties, portable toilet hire, welfare servicing, waste tank hire, portable shower hire, water bowser hire and water fills.
