CC Infrastructure Services: Tackling graffiti along the railway

CC Infrastructure Services tells Rail Business Daily about its mission to clean and revitalise UK network infrastructure as part of a journey of excellence spanning 24 years.

We started off our journey in 1998 as specialist graffiti removal experts. Over the years our portfolio of services has expanded but our passion for graffiti removal has continued; on average we remove over 22,000m2 of graffiti vandalism per year!

We are a RISQS audited company and have our own dedicated PTS trained teams, with extensive experience of working in the rail sector, both trackside, roadside and within your stations.

Last year our teams scaled over four miles of the railway, between Willesden Junction and Primrose Hill removing heavy graffiti tags and litter. The works were carried out back-to-back as part of a five day rail blockade on behalf of Balfour Beatty Rail, you can see our case study here…

We were also involved in the Brighton Mainline works which took place during a nine-day closure. Our teams were involved in carrying out our deep cleaning services to the platforms and canopies, painting works to ticket halls and waiting rooms and white and yellow lining on the platform edge, as well as graffiti removal from within the station grounds. You can check out our case study on this project here…

Keeping our tracks and stations clear of graffiti, litter and vandalism is something that we feel strongly about here at CC Infrastructure Services. Between 2019 and 2020 over 1.7 billion people used our rail services in the UK. Keeping the railway clear of graffiti and litter enhances the experiences of these individuals as well as creating a safer feel. Click here to read more about our graffiti removal services. We were thrilled to hear about the ‘spring clean fund’ announced to help spruce up our railways before the Queen’s Jubilee in June.

Our Technical Director said: “Graffiti and litter on the railway can be unsightly, make passengers feel unsafe and give a ‘run down’ feel to an area. We take great pride in cleaning up these areas and helping to keep the network feeling safe and clean.”
