High Level Objectives

The associated high level objectives are closely aligned with the call, and are:

  1. Reduction in service affecting delays due to fewer track geometry defects and associated failures (for example, due to track settlement or a localised loss of rail support)
  2. Increased network capacity in terms of more frequent trains and higher speeds, due to improved vertical geometry and reduced degradation rate
  3. Reduced lifecycle costs due to a reduction in maintenance and extended operational life of the track and associated assets
  4. Reduction in noise and vibration at the transition locations, due to the provision of a sustained smooth transfer between areas of differing support stiffness
  5. To provide a solution for optimum and sustained track support conditions, that is compatible with the next generation track solutions developed within IN2TRACK2 and the complimentary CFM project.
