Bamboo Sleepers Aimed At Middle Eastern Railways

The title of this post, is the same as that on this article on the Railway Gazette.

Sounds surprising, but the company founder and CEO, gives these advantages.

Avraham says that bamboo sleepers bring advantages in railway construction and renewal because the material does not require additional after-treatment with substances such as creosote in order to provide long term protection. It is also naturally impervious to insect infestation. This means the risk of soil and groundwater contamination from chemicals is minimised compared to alternative materials.

They are going to launch production with 50,000 tonnes of raw bamboo.
