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 Rail Vactor Jetters 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 Look, See systems to Main line Pan and Tilt tractor driven units, which are capable of surveying culverts up to 1.5 meters in diameter.
From this, QTS can provide the client with a full report including images and drawings of the drainage system. 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.
QTS Drainage also offers a complete package on track cleaning. Our bespoke Atego Vactor Jetting unit is fitted with a high-pressure jetting system with a series of 40mm spin jets, suitable for carrying out cleaning of slab track, removing dirt, silt and debris, which can, if left untreated, lead to standing water and track circuit issues.
We also have a fleet of portable hot wash / steam / cold water jetting units that are used for cleaning track on platforms throughout the country and we have dedicated teams who carry out these works to an exceptionally high standard. Our remote jetting system has also proved very successful.
At present, QTS is the only Tier 1 contractor on the National Drainage Framework and we currently have the largest geographic coverage and market share for CCTV and vactor / jetting works on UK rail infrastructure. Services include:
- CCTV survey and reporting
