EIFFAGE and edilon)(sedra have successfully installed the TramERS GB5® ballastless track system in Montescourt, France. Winner of the French CIRR 2021 Innovation Award, TramERSGB5® is a new and highly durable tramway track solution developed by French companies EIFFAGE Infrastructures (road and rail activities) and edilon)(sedra.

EIFFAGE’s asphalt mixing plants in Montescourt provide the perfect location to use the design for what it was designed for: tough conditions with heavy rail and road traffic.

Installing in record time!

TramERS GB5® combines EIFFAGE’s high performance GB5® asphalt with the advantages of the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System). The GB5® asphalt slab is quick and easy to install, allowing the rail to be installed just a few hours after asphalting! The liquid elastomer Corkelast® provides a continuously supported, highly electrically insulated and durable rail fastening system. In addition to high resistance and low maintenance, the environmental impact is significantly reduced, especially noise and vibration. The durable track, designed for mixed traffic tracks, is fully compliant with the latest and strict French SNBC regulations for CO2 reduction.

Sustainable tramway

With the Montescourt project, both companies are demonstrating their leading innovative position and strategy to contribute to sustainable tramway construction. The expertise and collaboration of the two companies’ technical specialists has resulted in this successful state-of-the-art project. This is a good example of how innovation from partnerships can lead to a future-proof rail solution.

If you have a project with a critical short possession time, a high frequency of mixed rail and road traffic and want a low maintenance and environmentally friendly track, please contact our technical staff to provide you with our technical proposal.
