Easy, fast & precise - Quantity TakeoffRoad Estimator for RailwaysRailways

Our Offerings

With increased demand for construction of new rail networks and upgrading the existing lines to handle larger traffic volume, technical complexities have surged for the professionals engaged in design and construction roles. While reliable estimates are necessary for evaluating various design alternatives, it is equally or more important for contractors and other agencies involved to get actual materials used during construction. Road Estimator is proving to be a very effective tool for this purpose. Design changes or field level data can be very easily incorporated and processed for speedy estimation and calculations.

Road Estimator for RailwaysReasons

There can be multiple scenarios as mentioned below and in all such cases, it is challenging for the quantity surveyor or estimation engineer to compute precise quantities without time overruns.

Embankment Layers

In normal case, railway track is laid on ballast at formation level over blanket layer which rests on embankment. Strengthening layer of any cohesive material is provided on side slopes of embankment. Between blanket and embankment, there can be embankment sub-grade that would be of defined thickness and follows the required cross slope.

High Level Embankment

At places where formation level is very high because of design requirement that results in very high embankment. High embankment is achieved at site by providing side slope berms of specific widths at regular depth intervals say around 3 to 6 m. When strengthening layer/layers are provided, those should follow the side slopes with berms.

Yard Area

Railroad yards are normally built where there is a need to store cars while they are not being loaded or unloaded, or are waiting to be assembled into trains. Large yards may have a tower to control operations. At places like yard area, sleepers are laid over layers of different material like WBM, stone soling, sub-grade that can be over or below the existing ground.

Center Line of Proposed Track

In case of doubling, center line of the proposed track will be outside the construction area, hence there can be challenges in relating the exact location of the cross section with reference to the existing track’s center line. Moreover, the offset distance between the center line to new line could be changing chainage to chainage.

Meets Expectation

Initially we were skeptical whether Road Estimator would be fine for us because we are working on a railway project in Bangladesh and requirements are different than highways. We were taken by surprise, now our team is convinced and the same is getting used at our other sites apart from road projects.

Many Positives

Road Estimator’s capability to handle various conditions during planning and execution of railways construction has eased our quantity surveying requirements to the great extent. And not to miss, their team is very supportive to clarify any technical or functional queries.
