SRSA install Sicut Sleepers on Sherrington Viaduct

Southern Rail Systems Alliance (SRSA), comprising of Colas Rail, Network Rail & AECOM, chose Sicut Composite Sleepers for a Network Rail project which required a sustainable and a lighter weight solution over traditional concrete and hardwood sleepers.  Indeed, SRSA carbon capture test results showed Sicut Sleepers used less than four times the carbon than existing hardwood, and less than double generated by concrete sleepers.

Sherrington Viaduct Operations Manager, Shaun Hodges said “Apart from the obvious environmental benefits of the composite material, mechanised and manual handling is much easier due to the light weight of the sleepers, resulting in safer lifting operation and potentially greater output in future.”
