TRS – committed to trackside welfare

Listen to this article

Keeping rail workers safe, motivated and comfortable is essential to the success of any project, and the provision of clean, legally compliant welfare facilities is crucial. However, picking the right solution for the job can be a difficult task. The use of static units is often not always convenient, or even necessary, especially when only small teams of workers are required. Most mobile solutions do not cater to larger teams.

With this in mind, Total Rail Solutions (TRS) has launched a unique, 12-seat capacity Canter Unit, providing an enhanced level of safety, welfare and comfort for operational rail teams.

This latest innovation in the road-rail market solves three age-old problems in one unit: personnel transport, proper site wellbeing, and the space for a pre-task brief in the right environment.

The bespoke solution marks the continuation of TRS’s transporting capability which includes the Kubota RTV 900, Land Rover Defender, and its existing personnel transporting cantor with the capability of transporting up to 14 people.

Designed to exacting specifications following extensive customer feedback, the new unit provides the ideal solution for safely and effectively deploying and supporting personnel while on site and along the track.

The machine features full toilet facilities at the rear, with fresh water handwash built in. For operational convenience, at the rear of the machine there is also a small tool store and workstation.

As well as providing a mess area, the unit’s canteen is the perfect space for a pre-task brief. There is a microwave, a sink with hot and cold running water, as well as seating for up to eight people in the back.

TRS is delighted to welcome this new welfare canter to the fleet. It provides the perfect solution for transportation, welfare, and briefing, whether your needs are a single shift, or long-term work.

TRS provides operated and non-operated road-rail plant, sub-contracting services, and labour provision to rail sites across the UK.

Working with leading contractors including Balfour Beatty, AMCOGiffen, Lundy Projects, Siemens, Bam Nuttal and Alun Griffiths, we’ve supported some of the most prestigious Network Rail and London Underground projects. We have the technical capabilities and fleet to service a wide range of projects, such as Overhead Line Equipment (OLE), Permanent Way and Civils work.

From supplying road-rail plant and POS services for a single shift rail maintenance job, to providing end-to-end project management for complex long-term upgrades – we have the equipment, manpower and expertise to ensure your project is a success.
