Slab track developments - Guidance on relevant standards
The report found that existing European and infrastructure owner standards provided sufficient general guidance on concrete slab track but that these had been prepared within the context of ballasted track and did not address the characteristics of slab track. Aspects specific to slab track, such as design, transition zones, testing and commissioning and decommissioning, are not covered in available standards.

Slab track - Safety
This report identifies that, although it is generally accepted in the rail industry that slab track provides benefits in terms of safety when compared with traditional ballasted track, there was surprisingly little published information. Some important research papers are reviewed and the way forward in promoting the safety case for slab track is proposed.

Slab track - The commercial case
A review of papers worldwide found that it is generally accepted that slab track offers a cost-effective alternative to ballasted track if the two systems are compared in terms of life-cycle costs. The study went on to provide a methodology for estimating the commercial case and the wider economic, social and environmental benefits of adopting slab track technology.
