This project is working to develop new methods and techniques to optimise the track systems, improve the operational performance of existing switches and crossings and extend the life of bridges and tunnels, researching new methods for maintaining and upgrading these structures.
This project focuses on developing new, more accurate methods for inspection and assessment of structures. In2Track is developing new techniques for repair and upgrade to reduce traffic disruption, and the project is working on methods to reduce noise and vibration. The project focuses on developing safer methods of assessment for tunnels and bridges that include the use of embedded sensors for self-diagnostics and condition monitoring.
The project will be over in a few months and we will be very pleased to have the opportunity to present the results of this exciting project.
