Composite sleepers purchased by Edmonton Light Rail Transit

Edmonton Light Rail Transit becomes one of numerous transit lines around the world to install railway sleepers manufactured using Rutgers and Polywood patented technologies.  Composite sleepers offer unique benefits and advantages compared to traditional wood sleepers, especially in cold climates and fluctuating conditions.  While salt entrapment under road crossings can damage and reduce the life of traditional wood sleepers, composite plastic sleepers are completely impervious to salt.
