Member companies may be interested in a £4.5m competition launched by the RSSB to find innovations to reduce damage to tracks by rail vehicles.
RSSB will offer up to £4.5m funding to winning suggestions for improvements to rail vehicles, which could reduce suspension and wheelset maintenance costs and enable vehicles to transition between main line and branch line running more easily.
It is hoped that the proposed innovations will decrease the cost of track repair and running gear maintenance, which can decrease vibrations and noise and help to improve comfort for passengers.
Key dates are:
Full application pack available 16 March
Supplier briefing 24 March
Registration deadline 19 May
Submissions 2 June
