PRB Consulting can assist you in negotiations with Network Rail Asset Protection (ASPRO) teams. Our consultants understand Network Rail`s concerns when the 3rd parties wish to carry out construction work close to their infrastructure and can help allay their fears by providing competent advice to you and Network Rail. This way, they make sure you understand your requirements for protecting the rail network. You may need to enter into an Asset Protection Agreement (APA) with Network Rail and agree to implement certain monitoring and risk mitigation measures, especially for temporary work. For example, monitoring tracks or embankments for movement or monitoring vibration, noise or air quality, especially in the vicinity of stations or depots. In order to carry out this type of work, it is necessary to call on competent bodies approved by the approved railways to carry out this work. PRB Consulting works with a number of suppliers who can help in all areas of risk reduction in the rail sector.
