Stanton Tunnel Conductor Rail System

Click here to edit subtitle

Stanton Tunnel is a railway tunnel on Old Dalby Test Track, part of Network Rails test track facility. With a length of 1.2km, it is UK's longest test track tunnel. Furrer+Frey has designed and supplied the Rigid Overhead Conductor Rail (ROCS) system for this tunnel. The system is designed for line speeds upto 140mph. The construction work was carried out by AMCO Rail under the supervision of Furrer+Frey.

The system has been commissioned with 25kV feed on 16 Mar 2015, with train testing successfully done on 18 Mar 2015 with Bombardier Class 387 units. The IEP trains are also planned to be tested under it in the coming weeks. The Intercity Express Programme (IEP) is a project in progress to bring an important step change in train travel in the UK, for both the Great Western Main Line and the East Coast Main Line.
