Ditch Cleaning

Essential for the longevity and foundational strength of a railway, proper ditch maintenance increases the stability of ballast and subgrade by moving water away from the track and right of way. Delivering substantial benefits and ROI, ditch cleaning increases cycle time between expensive surfacing and lining programs, prevents premature tie deterioration and ensures a long-lasting and stable track structure.

Loram’s drainage maintenance solutions, including shoulder ballast cleaning, undercutting and ditch cleaning, work in concert to ensure that damaging water is intercepted and diverted from the track infrastructure.

Cleaned, maintained and properly-sloped ditches provide a host of benefits including:
  • Facilitates vital drainage from the ballast section of the track
  • Manages the effects of penetrating water sources
  • Ensures the efficacy of track level drainage maintenance
  • Reduces or eliminates water-saturated track soils
