Rail bridge flood monitoring
James Fisher Testing Services' rail bridge monitoring system draws upon our extensive experience in bridge monitoring to offer a reliable flood warning system to network operators.
Powered by renewable energy sources, the railway bridge flood monitoring system incorporates water level sensors, displacement sensors and cameras to offer environmental and structural monitoring. Data is streamed in real time and visualised in a simple traffic light tyle system to indicate water levels.
Key benefits of the JFTS flood monitoring system:
- Data provision allows for effective management of train movement during flood events
- Improved network safety, protecting passengers and infrastructure
- Simple illustration of water level
The data gathered from monitoring flood events provides an early warning of potentially serious accidents or trains becoming stranded. Monitoring water levels on railway bridges helps to predict when bridge closure levels could be reached, enabling the effective management of train movements.
