Rail

The UK rail industry is critical to the country’s economy.  More goods and freight than ever are being moved by train, a trend that is expected to continue with an estimated 19% increase in freight activity by 2019.  Passenger journeys are also on the rise; in 2012 alone, 1.5 billion passengers on an average of 24,000 trains a day travelled the more than 20,000 miles of track on the UK rail network.

Currently the UK rail network is part electrified and part electric traction (locomotive and multiple units).  The electrification of the rail systems using overhead lines (AC current) and third rail (DC current) technologies allows trains to be more reliable, accelerate quicker, and causes less track wear than diesel trains.


It is vital that the rail network can support both this increasing traffic demand as well as the creation of a higher percentage of electrified lines whilst integrating new rail technology growth, which is where industry leaders Jointing Technologies excel.
