Product Solutions

During a recent Category 11 renewal project on the LNE.EMD (London North East – East Midlands) route at Eccles Yard, near Doncaster, Network Rail had to replace the rails, sleepers and ballasts over a 1,200 yard linear stretch of track. After reviewing the report it became apparent that due to the amount of rail
traffic predicted, the track infrastructure would require additional support to provide enhanced stability and better drainage.

The solution to the Network Rail issue came with the recommendation to install TERRAM PW2 Drainage Trackbed Separator and Hydrotex geocomposites, both of which are specifically manufactured to support rail infrastructures. 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.
