About the event

This presentation delivered by Marcello Corsi will outline recent developments in various rail track systems used in Dublin and across Europe for light rail and metro systems, including open track configurations such as ballast, slab, plinth and direct fixing, and other types more suitable for on-street shared and segregated corridors, such as green and embedded track. Key aspects such as cost, constructability, durability, maintenance, environmental impacts and mechanical characteristics will be examined, with a particular focus on the development of embedded track in Dublin in the last 15 years.
