Synthetic wood sleepers installed

14 Jun 2014

SWITZERLAND: BLS is installing FFU synthetic wood sleepers supplied by Japanese firm Sekisui at three sites for trials.

The first installation was at Frutigen station, where FFU turnout bearers are being tested.

The fibre-reinforced foam urethane sleepers were supplied pre-drilled to SBB's Hägendorf workshop, where the turnouts were prefabricated for transport to the worksite in two panels.
