Keeping Rail Decarbonisation on Track – Galvanized Steel

In the realm of rail construction, durability stands as the cornerstone of reliability and longevity, defining the capacity of rail infrastructure to withstand the test of time, operational stress, and environmental challenges, ensuring not only the seamless functionality of transportation networks but also contributing significantly to sustainable, cost-effective, and environmentally conscious solutions for the future of the rail industry.

Given the demand for growth to be sustainable, UK construction can no longer rely on single life components and disposable materials, and Galvanizers Association welcomes the idea that the principles of circular economics will underpin all future construction, including transport and infrastructure.

Rail Construction Durability

Our guide details how galvanized steel can help deliver UK rails ambitious decarbonisation plan. It explains the many advantages of using steel and galvanizing within a circular design philosophy that will ultimately help with delivering decarbonised transport infrastructure.

Benefits that galvanized steel can bring to the decarbonisation of the rail sector:

  • Durability - over 100 years performance
  • Predictability
  • Ease of inspection
  • Enhances the reusability of steel
