Topcon Monitoring Systems Selected by Vibranalysis for LIRR Expansion Project
Topcon Positioning Group announces New York-based Vibranalysis has selected Topcon Delta Solutions deformation monitoring systems for work on the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) Expansion Project. The $2 billion expansion is included in the $5.6 billion LIRR Project announced in 2017.
Vibranalysis will utilize Topcon MS measuring stations, Delta Link controllers and Delta Watch software for the project, providing the ability to determine how the existing track and any adjacent structures are reacting during the construction process. Delta Solutions is designed to quantify deformation at millimeter resolution to identify even the smallest changes in displacement.
Charles Rihner, vice president of planning for Topcon Positioning Group, said, “The use of monitoring technology on large-scale infrastructure projects, particularly in heavily populated urban settings such as the Long Island project, is critical in ensuring quality and safety during all phases of the construction process. We are excited to support Vibranalysis in their initiative to provide highly accurate data and precise monitoring technology to this important infrastructure project.”
Howard Jameson, vice president of Vibranalysis, said, “The Long Island Railroad Expansion Project is the largest expansion of the Long Island Railroad in recent history. Vibranalysis is pleased to be part of the distinguished group of contractors working to complete the expansion. Partnering with Topcon to bring the latest equipment to monitor the site has been seamless. We value our relationship with such a professional organization that provides exceptional equipment and service.”
