Research into enhanced track and switch and crossing system 2

Project description

Switching to better railway infrastructure

Switches and crossings (S&Cs), more commonly known as ‘turnouts’, are vital components in railway networks, allowing trains to switch between tracks. The EU-funded IN2TRACK2 project is working on three sub-projects related to S&C, track system, and bridge and tunnel infrastructure. As regards the S&C, it is devising a new system to boost railway performance. Researchers will also investigate track construction and study new methods for repairing and maintaining bridge and tunnel infrastructure. The project aims to reduce costs, increase safety, and improve railway transport in Europe for passengers – making rail a reliable, punctual and economical choice of transport.
