Network Rail recently became the first railway company to officially announce their commitment to tackling climate change. By acknowledging the climate emergency and the science-backed target of limiting global warming to 1.5. degrees, Network Rail affirmed their goal of continuing to be the cleanest, greenest mass transport system. In practical terms, this often means embracing innovation and new technologies that can reduce carbon emissions.
Network Rail are now using Telent’s Digital Delivery solution to conduct station surveys along some of their busiest routes. The result? Faster, safer, and more carbon efficient operations. The switch from traditional, manual survey techniques to 3D scans reduces vehicle emissions by eliminating the need to revisit survey sites altogether.
