The substructure is a crucial element of a railway’s infrastructure. It is split into three parts; formation, sub-ballast and ballast. They are built together so that the track is on a camber to aid with water run-off.

Elements of Infrastructure
Obviously, the track design is a priority, but the substructure is just as important. The substructure needs to support the track.
Protection of the track from damage and unauthorised access is vitally important.
Rails and sleepers need consideration for a balance between the strength and comfort of the ride.
The track gauge will affect the decisions on which type of rails and sleepers are used
Maintenance, replacements and upgrades of parts of the track are an essential part of the process. It can be planned so that the cost of upkeeping your track is regular.
