Reuse of Conductor rail

Sites should seek to reduce their impact on the environment by reusing as much material as possible. If possible, materials should always be regenerated and reused rather than sent to landfill.

Our project involved remodelling work on existing rail networks. As part of the project, we assess the length, wear and condition of the existing conductor rails, which provide the electric power to a railway locomotive or train.

This assessment is used to decide how much new conductor rail is required for each stage of the works, leading to the reuse and regeneration of conductor rail material that would otherwise be scrapped and sent to landfill.

This system saves time, money and reduces waste output by regenerating materials instead of sending them to landfill.
