No organisation is the same. Experienced engineers and developers at Omnicom Balfour Beatty understand where businesses will get the best value from technology and focus on those tangible benefits.

We’ll help assess the needs of a business and explain the technology available to improve efficiency and safety. We can also arrange demonstrations and training but, more importantly, the advice we share is based on each organisation’s needs, not ours.

Digital Image Library

We have already surveyed over 30,000km of rail track and more than 5,000km of our road network, creating a valuable library of digital data. UK rail providers already benefit from regular updates in order to maintain the safety of their network.

Our video data is available to buy and specific sections or mileages can be supplied, simply delivered on external hard drives.

To order data, please speak to a member of our Media Sales Team on +44 (0)1904 778100.


Rail-View is an on-line portal to images and valuable inspection information, across the UK rail network. Users can access an information-rich catalogue of geospatially referenced material, associated to either mapping or aerial imagery. With its linear referencing engine, Rail-View allows users to navigate using familiar local referencing systems.

Search criteria includes: geographic location, linear reference or geographically referenced feature (junction, town, station, postcode, etc.). Imagery for the area can then be viewed and navigated. Data can also be interrogated to allow measurements to be taken in three dimensions.

Rail-View is a powerful tool that results in judicial decision making, based on accurate visual data.
And all this, without having to leave the office!

Train locator

Train Locator tracks the position of virtually all the traffic on our busy rail network. Using real time data from the UK mainline rail network and train operations, it provides a live, visual feed of train locations throughout the country.

Tapping into Network Rail’s signalling systems and combining this live information with both route and track level network mapping, it geospatially maps thousands of train movements every day.

Developed by Omnicom Balfour Beatty, Train Locator aims to improve the visibility of our network and the capacity for more efficient monitoring. We are continually improving the mapping capability: even in areas where information from signalling systems is limited, for example Wales and Scotland.
