Holders of the coveted Network Rail Principal Contractor’s Licence, we’re one of the largest, most respected multi-disciplinary railway surveying and engineering firms in the UK.


Railway Track Surveys

Our dedicated, professional Railway Surveyors in our workforce deliver real, measurable value to projects throughout the UK.

We help you understand your sites and the information generated from them. No matter the size, value or complexity, with The City Surveys Group your rail project is in safe hands.

We’ve been working at the core of the nation’s railways since 2003. We have evolved to become one of Britain’s leading railway engineering, surveying and consulting organisations. Whether it’s a renewal requiring extensive track surveys, a level crossing project requiring the installation of cutting-edge communication and warning systems or just a single UTX requiring track monitoring, The City Surveys Group have the personnel, the experience and the know-how to support and enhance your most important projects.

Backed up by the award of a Principal Contractor’s Licence, our dedicated Rail Department offers a fully integrated and turnkey approach to working on the nation’s railway infrastructure. From desktop and design phases to survey, planning and technical engineering, our substantial team of rail professionals bring a wealth of knowledge and rail know-how to every job, proving an invaluable asset to the project. Whilst for some clients we provide a single, stand alone service, others benefit greatly from our multi-disciplinary nature; our ability to generate and analyse data from all elements and throughout all stages of a rail project.

Not satisfied with employing and nurturing the best people, The City Surveys Group regularly invests both time and money in the very latest training and equipment to further bolster the quality and accuracy of our services. We constantly upgrade both equipment and methodology and pair this with tried and tested traditional processes. This leads to maximum productivity and precision, improved safety for all involved and a considerably shorter delivery time for our clients.
