Product Solutions

Everyday Network Rail manages, maintains and develops train and freight rail infrastructures, TERRAM products are an integral and essential part of Network Rail’s day-to-day maintenance and track development work.

At Eccles Yard, a 1,200 yard linear section of track required replacement of rails, sleepers and ballast, with the track infrastructure needing additional support to ensure better stability and drainage.

The solution Terram proposed is to install PW2 and Hydrotex geotextiles, both of which are manufactured specifically to support rail infrastructure and provide durable solutions.

  • Installing PW2 can save money on costly future maintenance repairs, as it acts as a separator and ground stabiliser, preventing the rail track from losing alignment should any sub-grade erosion occur.
  • TERRAM Hydrotex provides further stability, acting as a separator of fine soils, replacing the requirement to have a fragile sand blanket in place
