Railway Civil Engineering

Railways form an integral part of the transportation mix of countries around the world. At HHO we believe that Railway Engineering is fundamental to public transport and therefore integral to the relief of road-based congestion.

Each project we handle is approached in a holistic manner with the skills and knowledge gained over decades of engineering excellence. Multiple award winning projects are a testimony to this fact. The team at HHO, along with their selected partners in the fields of electrical and mechanical engineering, handles projects ranging from the High-Speed Gautrain and conventional freight and commuter rail lines to light rail in an urban context.

Our services include:

  • Rail feasibility studies including assessing freight/passenger demand
  • Station design including integration of rail with other transport modes, e.g. road based public transport
  • Railway track alignment and design
  • Earthworks design
  • Railway pavement design
  • Drainage design
  • Rail safety audits
