Ballast bonding, also known as ballast gluing, was first introduced in Europe and Asia to improve maintenance efforts throughout the rail network. BCS has established this sophisticated material and design philosophy in Australia and has been responsible for its application over the last 5 years. All projects have met with great success, reducing maintenance frequency and reducing associated maintenance costs throughout the Australian market.

Some of the advantages through the ballast bonding services offered by BCS are improved on time running dynamics and rail safety, reduced long term maintenance costs and increased stability of the ballast bed.
