During the weekend of 11 and 12 March 2017 edilon)(sedra installed its first Corkelast® LCS (Level Crossing System) in Kent, United Kingdom.
As part of the edilon)(sedra expansion and growth, we’re excited to inform you about our first Corkelast® LCS installed in the UK. The installation of the 15 meter level crossing for the client “Kent and East Sussex Railway” is a first important step in the process of becoming an approved supplier to the UK railway market. The edilon)(sedra scope of work included the engineering, the delivery of materials and equipment and the installation of the track.
edilon)(sedra Corkelast® LCS is a safe and virtually maintenance free level crossing system for heavy duty road and rail crossings (mixed traffic). The system is easy to install, has no mechanical fasteners and is completely waterproof. Furthermore it combines the powerful features of edilon)(sedra Corkelast® ERS (Embedded Rail System) with edilon)(sedra prefabricated slab tracks. The economic favourable channel design and optimally engineered thickness of the slab result in an affordable level crossing solution with a low Life Cycle Cost balance.
