With increasing rail passenger numbers and cars on the road, the management of environmental issues in transport infrastructure will be increasingly important.
Rail and highway engineers often have limited access to sites and therefore need to ensure that any environmental issues are identified and managed at an early stage of the project. Surveying and licensing of protected species, for example, can cause delays of up to two years, having a significant impact on the delivery of essential projects.
Trees and leaves can cause delays and present a real safety hazard to trains. However, ADAS has an enviable track record of experience with vegetation management, environmental modelling, GIS and web design. This means that ADAS is able to develop an effective, accessible solution for the rail industry.
Rail and highways engineers can be confident that ADAS will deliver responsive and relevant environmental solutions to meet their needs. With a unique combination of skills and experience in vegetation management and ecology, ADAS is able to provide a single point of contact for environmental information to facilitate rail and highways engineering works.
ADAS is able to provide a complete service from initial survey through to the implementation of mitigation. .
