Network Rail Specify Postsaver

Posted By  Postsaver Team  On May 15, 2015

Network Rail Have Recently Specified Postsaver For All Of Their Trackside Fencing

Network Rail are responsible for ensuring the track remains clear of livestock and other moving hazards at all times. Not a simple task when you bear in mind they have around 16,000 miles of track and around 32,000 miles of fencing to maintain. This represents a significant cost to Network Rail of tens of millions of pounds every year.

With concerns over the lifespan of standard wooden fence posts and a desire to improve performance and reduce costs Network Rail embarked on a comprehensive 3-year evaluation process to assess alternative fencing systems, materials and wood life extension technologies.

This process included installation trials in different locations around the UK and field testing of many different materials and systems as well as extensive consultations with the Country Landowners Association and the Farmers Union.

Throughout this process, we worked closely with Network Rail in providing samples and test data and liaising with suppliers, Network Rail contractors and fence installers.

At the end of this process, we are pleased to say that Network Rail has continued to use wood as the material of choice for stock fencing and have included the use of composite ground line sleeves within the specification, a big boost for Postsaver
