Nationwide rail surfacing contractor

As a specialist surfacing contractor, Toppesfield works closely with customers in the rail sector on new infrastructure and resurfacing projects. The complexity of these projects has allowed us to build in-depth rail expertise within our team, making us a reliable choice for packages of work with tight delivery windows and challenging requirements. With RISQS membership and trained PTS operatives among our foremen and supervisors, we’re prepared to uphold rigorous health and safety standards during projects of all sizes throughout the UK.

How can
Toppesfield assist the rail sector?

We know that rail surfacing projects are time sensitive and we understand how to deliver exceptional results within the allocated delivery window. As one of the last jobs to be completed during a railway project, we remain flexible so that our surfacing programme can accommodate changes in timing and scope. The attention to detail amongst our operatives ensures that we provide a high-quality surface that complies with all our customer’s requirements. When time is of the essence and trip hazards are unacceptable, we’re the right choice of surfacing contractor to guarantee smooth project delivery. We typically work on rail projects involving elements such as:

  • New rail infrastructure
  • Platform renewals
  • Platform extensions
  • Access roads
  • Station car parks

Add value to your rail surfacing project

We identify opportunities to add value to projects wherever we can. By improving the efficiency of the programme or advising on material requirements we can maximise the working window and ensure the best possible outcome for our customers. Access limitations are a common challenge within rail surfacing projects; we can overcome these, using bespoke solutions such as transporting equipment and materials using the track or opting for a material that remains workable for longer. For major rail projects, we also have the resources to assist with social value KPIs, lending our support through initiatives such as assigning an apprentice to the project.

Benefit from our independence

We are an independent surfacing contractor with the ability to source materials from the entire UK market, ensuring greater choice and superior value for our customers. We follow a self-delivery model, sourcing materials locally to make sure that, wherever a project is based, a reliable supply chain can be established. This also provides a number of additional benefits: haul time is reduced, emissions are minimised, and local talent is supported. We’ve developed close relationships with suppliers throughout the UK to ensure that we aren’t dependent on particular suppliers for the successful delivery of a project.
