edilon)(sedra has been awarded the contract to supply ballastless track systems for the 2nd extension of Warsaw Metro Line 2 for the Turkish contractor Gülermak. The total project includes approx. 20 km of Corkelast® EBS (Embedded Block System) single track, including 8 stations and a technical depot.

The contract includes edition)(sedra Trackelast® vibration damping PU-mats for the most sensitive noise and vibration mitigation areas and 41 EBS switches and crossings. The EBS system has been used in every new section of the Warsaw Metro network since 2008, including the complete 2nd line.
Additionally, almost 5 km of Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) single track will be installed.
The project has already started. Agreement has been reached on a delivery schedule.
