SBC Rail Ltd are currently supplying innovative concrete track solutions to Crossrail.
Around 63,000 Twin Block Booted Sleepers and 4,500 High Attenuation Sleepers (HAS) have been designed in close collaboration with Consolis Group sister companies Stanton Bonna and Sateba.
The sleepers are primarily designed to attenuate noise and vibration whilst generating savings on both the track construction costs and programme.
The HAS is the result of a 10 year investment programme between Sateba and Alstom to develop a cost effective alternative to traditional floating slab track.
Watch the Crossraill video to see the installation method being used for sleepers and track – Crossrail Railway Systems: First permanent tracks laid in the Crossrail tunnels.
Read ‘Crossrail gets its rails‘ article in The Rail Engineer for further information about the installation of sleepers and track.
