Whilst offering conventional datum plating services, The City Surveys Group can also complete this task with the use of a track mounted laser (Geismar Mephisto). This process involves plates being installed according to created alignment designs for future track tamping.

Bespoke spreadsheets are created clearly showing the location, road identification, horizontal and vertical offsets for any future redesigning that may be required.

Whilst we offer this service in a technical capacity we are also able to provide datum plates at very competitive rates to those firms able to carry out the datum plating themselves.
