Drainage & Track Cleaning

QTS owns, operates and maintains the largest fleet of on-track, bespoke drainage plant in the UK. Our operatives are part of a skilled drainage team, who are proud of the work they carry out and will go the extra mile to ensure full client confidence.

Our fleet of RRV Jet/Vac’s are operated by trained, experienced and certificated drainage operatives who ensure any issues are solved. They are solution-driven, finding answers to problems including culverts, catch pits or blocked drainage systems.

QTS has a range of CCTV investigation equipment including our scanprobe push-rod systems to Proteus Minicam tractor driven units, which are capable of surveying culverts up to 3 meters in diameter.

From this, QTS can provide the client with a full report including images and drawings of the drainage system by OS19x trained operatives. If there are any minor breaks in the pipeline, QTS save on expensive excavation costs by patch lining the area of concern. Our team is able to carry out this work quickly and effectively which makes our work the perfect ‘no dig’ solution.

Our bespoke Jetting units can be fitted with a high-pressure jetting lances with a series of 40mm jets, suitable for carrying out cleaning of slab track, removing dirt, silt and debris and improving the slab condition. After disinfection this allows access for sanitary slab track maintenance.
