Maccaferri is on the committee of the symposium whose theme is Railway Engineering
The IGS UK Chapter is holding its 5th National Geosynthetics Symposium on April 18th, 2018 at the National Railway Museum in York. The symposium is set to show the established use of geosynthetics in rail applications globally over the last 30 years. Discussions aim to demonstrate how geosynthetics are versatile and can be used in high-speed networks to create a vast range of solutions.
The symposium will address the many challenges faced by the rail sector. With high-speed railways planned across the world, transport will become increasingly safe and reliable. On the other hand, there is an urgent need to reduce the carbon emissions associated with new infrastructure development to safeguard the environment. Sustainability is also among the most pressing issues. In this context, geosynthetics can offer sustainable and cost-effective solutions.
This symposium is an important step towards changing our future and will bring together consultants, contractors, academics and suppliers with experience of the opportunities and challenges of utilising geosynthetics in rail infrastructure. Speakers will include HS2 specialists, professionals from National Railway network operators of France, Germany, Italy and Spain as well as leading academics from Japan, amongst others.
Come and visit us at our stand. We hope to see you there!
