New category for the 2016 UK Rail Industry Awards

Track Technology has featured heavily over the years in Rail Technology Magazine and many suppliers have used RTM to showcase a wide variety of products and services in this colossal and hugely important area of the industry. 

New for the 2016 UK Rail Industry Awards (UKRIA), we have introduced a category specifically for ‘Track Technology’. Judges are looking for the latest innovation in track technology, whether for use on the track itself, or alongside it.

UKRIA director Roy Rowlands said: "Have you increased the efficiency with which it can be lay down, its lifespan, safety or have you developed plug-ins that allow you to monitor or control track more effectively? Whatever the innovation you need to enter the ‘Track Technology’ category of the UK Rail Industry Awards!" 

Deadline for entries is 4 October 2015.
