Vegetation management along the railways presents a unique challenge to ensure a safe and effective transport system without compromising the environmental value of the lineside. As 2005 winners of the Network Rail Environmental Award for contractors, Cleartrack operates a comprehensive programme to ensure that the essential vegetation clearance work is carried out with genuine regard for environmental protection and a commitment to the enhancement of lineside biodiversity. Cleartrack’s environmental department has developed detailed policies based on environmental legislation, best practice and consultation with leading conservation organisations to provide positive environmental solutions without compromising the operating requirements of the railway.
Spalding Associates has played an integral and essential part in helping us achieve the high environmental standards that we set ourselves, contributing detailed knowledge on environmental issues and advanced GIS mapping techniques. We look forward to continuing to work closely with them to bring our expertise to a wider audience within the national railway network.
