Permanent Way Design

The ECSL Permanent Way team, supported by the wider organisation can provide a complete multi-disciplinary design service, from concept to construction. We offer a fully integrated design solution right from the initial scope definition, whether that be to Network Rail’s GRIP Stage process in the UK or international standards in India, the Middle East or South East Asia.

Our Permanent Way engineers specialise in track design, infrastructure gauging and trackbed stabilisation, complimented by our Civil and Geotechnical engineers. We also provide consultancy services within the electrification, power and signaling disciplines.

The experience of our staff spans all types of light and heavy rail infrastructure including high speed, suburban, freight, light rail, metro, stations and depot design, with our team experienced in delivering projects in the UK, Middle East, India and South East Asia.

Our Infrastructure design capability is further bolstered by our 3D surveying and track monitoring capability, provided by a strategic partner. This puts us in a unique position to support our internal design services and the work of third parties.


We have experience in doing projects covering both design and construction supervision and term maintenance of infrastructure.
