Managing Rail Surface Water

About this event

The UK Rail industry goes back to the 18th Century and HS2, Crossrail and Crossrail 2 are transporting us into the future. The rail industry has a huge amount of infrastructure. Each of these areas come with a variety of restrictions and health and safety requirements for design.

In this presentation we look at the codes of practice used for the design of surface water management systems on Network rail and TfL’s networks. Providing in depth knowledge of the Surface Water Management solutions on offer and how the effect specific scenarios.

Finishing the presentation with a flurry of case studies and how ACO have worked on a variety of different projects covering the areas of; station buildings, platforms, maintenance sheds, light rail, parking and roads in line with the standards set out and how we implement SuDS within our designs.
