edilon)(sedra has recently been asked for a rail replacement job in the historical city centre of Gent in Belgium. The old and rigid filler block system caused heavy rail wear in the curved part of the track.
Therefore the old track is replaced by the elastic and durable rail system edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System).This homogeneous and robust rail fastening over the full length of the curved track, minimizes future rail wear and contributes to a favourable LCC-balance. The system offers track gauge stability especially in curved track without the use of gauge bars. Furthermore it offers optimal reduction of noise & vibration, which is an important aspect for this historical and densely populated part of the city.
