May 2019 - A large-scale renovation project in the Belgian town of Anderlues also included work on the tram line from Anderlues to Charleroi, with 1600 metres of tram rails being replaced. Pandrol CDM Track used the patented QTrack® rail system, for which De Boer Staal Holland supplied 80x7 flats.
Pandrol QTrack® encapsulates the rail in a durable and resilient rubber profile that is low on maintenance and relatively easy to install. The profile also reduces installation and service life costs, as well as providing stray current insulation and an optimal solution for ground noise and vibration. Steel bulb flats will be applied on the transition from rail to asphalt. The 'bulb' on the bulb flats ensures that the rails will not rise up and keeps the asphalt crack-free.
