Railway construction

Trains packed with commuters whizz along the track from A to B, trams and metro lines rush through and deep beneath the city, sea containers travel to the port by rail. Whether it be for passengers, industry or cranes, railway infrastructure and track construction holds no secrets for VolkerWessels. We have the experience, expertise and resources to lay new track and maintain existing railway lines.

Maintenance and new construction

From railway lines to tram tracks and from metro lines to light rail, VolkerWessels guarantees reliability and availability. Our maintenance on the rails, switches, overhead lines, welds and sleepers prevents outages, unnecessary delays and unsafe situations on the tracks. What’s more, VolkerWessels has the people and resources to create new rail routes and replace existing lines.

Technical expertise

In addition to railway construction we apply our railway expertise and knowledge of technical systems to other disciplines, including for example the design, construction, maintenance and repair of crane rails. Our technical specialists also provide added value on infrastructural engineering works such as bridges, locks, tunnels and flood defence systems.
