Track Inspection Provider

A Track Inspection Provider You Can Trust

Summit Infrastructure proudly provides private track owners with reliable industrial track inspection services at the frequency required to maintain safety and regulatory compliance.

In the rail industry, track inspections are essential to ensure that rail defects or poor track conditions don’t derail trains and put people or infrastructure at risk. According to Transport Canada’s track safety rules, regular track inspections are required by law depending on the annual tonnage that passes through your tracks and before use for inactive tracks.

At Summit Infrastructure, we don’t offer track maintenance and repair services. Our work ends at the inspection stage, so you can trust that we have no vested interest in recommending maintenance or repairs that are not needed.
