WASTED TIME & RESOURCES DURING RAILROAD TUNNEL MAINTENANCE
The Problem with Tunnel Work Today
Conducting regular maintenance on one of the thousands of railroad tunnels across the country is no simple or minor task. It can take days to complete regularly scheduled maintenance on a single tunnel, even with a full team of workers alongside an entire fleet of track equipment. One of the challenges to complete tunnel maintenance timely and efficiently is the mandatory work delays. These are often caused by the carbon monoxide and other harmful airborne toxins put off by the combustion engines in use during tunnel work.
