BTE SOLUTIONS FOR STORM DAMAGE

RAPID RESPONSE FOR STORM DAMAGE HELP

Torrential rains, hurricanes, or a sudden downpour can trigger devastating mudslides.  Instantly filling trackside drainage ditches, these dangerous mudflows bring debris, clay, and sloppy conditions that contaminate ballast, clog culverts, and cause treacherous track wash outs.

 

Quick response to drainage problems resulting from these muddy disasters is critical for keeping trains running smoothly and avoiding costly delays. BTE has the equipment to help repair railroad tracks that have been damaged by natural disasters.

 

 

 

 

 

HERE FOR EMERGENCIES

A Class 1 railroad called on BTE for emergency help after heavy rainfall from tropical storm Gordon caused multiple messy mudslides, closing an important railroad track to all traffic.  As typical with many rail lines, this track was built along a river at the bottom of a steep cliff, making the muddy landslide areas difficult to access as they were miles from the nearest crossing. BTE excavators quickly hi-railed to the jobsite to help. For more, see the video or click here to download the article.
