Easy, fast & precise - Cross Section and Quantity Takeoff Road Estimator for Railways Railways

Road Estimator Software in Railways

Railway track-laying projects have complex preparation work, including road recreation, trackwork, underground utilities, and much more. This rail transportation laying work requires a lot of relocation and relaying of utilities and services. Civil engineers who lay railroads require softwares that helps calculate the parameters of the required area with such precision.

Road Estimator Software in railways helps in determining the exact material required for the quantitative analysis. When fed inside of software like Road Estimator with many datasets and data points, it helps deliver a correct judgement for laying a train track. Road Estimator software helps to find the usage of different materials during and after construction, supports various types of construction elements, and useful for new or doubling or adding more lanes alongside the current track.

Road Estimator
Road Estimator is a quantity calculation software that has helped many of the rail projects’ stakeholders to arrive at exact quantities with detailed cross-sections of railway tracks. It takes care of all the criticalities effectively with a lot more features. The software can accommodate working with multi-layers and effectively detects various construction conditions.

Road Estimator for RailwaysReasons

While laying railway tracks, it is essential to understand the railway track alignment and topography of the route among other criteria for achieving the economy in the project. While planning and constructing the track, it is vital to know the amount of cut and fill of earthwork required because economy in construction largely depends on this quantity apart from oter construction materials. Road Estimator provides fast and accurate calculation along with detailed railway track cross-section and reports. Its user-friendly CAD interface allows different types of railway track cross-sections to be easily created. There can be multiple requirements, as mentioned below. In all such cases, Road Estimator eases the challenges faced by the quantity surveyor or estimation engineer to get cross-sections and compute precise quantities without time over runs.

Embankment Layers

In normal cases, the railway track cross-section is laid on ballast at formation level over a blanket layer which rests on the embankment. A strengthening layer of any cohesive material is provided on the side slopes of the embankment. Between the blanket and embankment, there can be an embankment subgrade that would be of a defined thickness and follows the required cross slope.


High Level Embankment

At places where the formation level is very high because of design requirements that result in a very high embankment. The high embankment is achieved at the site by providing side slope berms of specific widths at regular depth intervals, say around 3 to 6 m. When strengthening layer/layers are provided, those should follow the side slopes with berms.


Yard Area

Railroad yards are normally built where there is a need to store cars while they are not being loaded or unloaded or are waiting to be assembled into trains. Large yards may have a tower to control operations. At places like yard areas, sleepers are laid over layers of different materials like WBM, stone soling, and subgrade that can be over or below the existing ground.


Center Line of Proposed Track

In case of doubling, the centre line of the proposed track will be outside the construction area. Hence there can be challenges in relating the exact location of the cross-section with reference to the existing track’s centre line. Moreover, the offset distance between the centre line and the new line could change chainage to chainage.

What is a railway track cross-section?

A railway track cross-section is a planar cross-section of a railway track with the necessary components to help lay a railroad or renovate a repaired one. It will help understand the characteristics of a railroad or a pathway for efficiently laying the transportation system.

What our clients
are sayingClients

Meets Expectation

Initially we were skeptical whether Road Estimator would be fine for us because we are working on a railway project in Bangladesh and requirements are different than highways. We were taken by surprise, now our team is convinced and the same is getting used at our other sites apart from road projects for cross section and quantity calculation.

Many Positives

Road Estimator’s capability to handle various conditions during planning and execution of railways construction has eased our quantity surveying requirements to the great extent. And not to miss, their team is very supportive to clarify any technical or functional queries.
