Conventional railways

Technical support from planning to implementation

With expertise across all key disciplines - including rolling stock, infrastructure, power systems and operations - we work with the industry to deliver railways that are safer, more sustainable and more customer-focused than ever before.

On any given day, our teams may be providing operators with data analytics to improve operational resilience, helping infrastructure managers increase capacity with intelligent control systems or working with the supply chain to provide the building blocks of a low-carbon, energy-efficient railway. 

Whatever your requirements, we can provide the technical insight needed to propel your project from initial planning though to implementation.

And, as part of the Ricardo group, we can also draw upon a wealth of knowledge from colleagues working in fields such as the clean energy, automotive and motorsport sectors, accessing their expertise in delivering automation, safety and low-emission technologies.
