A European customer required solution to both hardwood and concrete S&Cs. Mixture of bearer lengths were required, including over 5m. Turnout had to be prefabricated off site at the customer’s chosen supplier and delivered to site for installation.
Sicut composite bearers used were 152mm x 304mm, with lengths ranging from 2.6m to 5m. For bearers above 5m, Sicuts unique joining plate was used to connect bearers together to increase the length size. Sicut standard sleepers of 132mm x 254mm were used to replace existing timber sleepers.
