Durability and less maintenance is the way towards an optimized railway infrastructure. A new principle for contruction of the railway shall ensure a more efficient and sustainable railway operation by optimizing the future Danish railway instructure. It has to be more robust, require less maintenance and reduce noise than what the case is today.
The research and develpment project "Roads2Rails" aim to ensure railway operations with less disturbances, by reducing the rail networks need for maintenance. it also aims to ensure that the construction should be more robust in order to withstand the consequences of the climate changes.
Roads2Rails is a research and development project with a total budget of 9 million danish kroner. The project is funded by Inovation fund Denmark (Innovationsfonden) and will run for 4 years starting in March 2016
