Metro & Depot

Customer Challenge:

Required a solution with 50 year expectancy for Metro Cars with 12 MT axle loads and speeds of 80 km/h. Train frequency is every 3 to 20 minutes over this busy European public transport system.

Sicut Solution:

1,600 Sicut composite sleepers with dimensions 152mm x 254mm with lengths between 2.4m and 2.6m were used for this project. Handling and installation (drilling, cutting and fastening) requirements were the same as those adopted for timber sleepers and no additional training was required for fabricators, or for site installation teams.
