Description

The Tubular Stretcher Bar

The Midland & North Western Section together with the London & South-East Section of the IRSE has pleasure in presenting this technical talk.

Join us on the journey of the tubular stretcher bar ……From Derby, to Colorado and Norton Bridge!!
This is an opportunity to understand the steps undertaken by Network Rail to deliver tubular stretcher bars to the infrastructure.
Prior to the introduction of the tubular stretcher bar, previous designs of stretcher bars dated back to 1950’s and had largely remained unaltered until 2007.
This presentation details why the designs of stretcher bars had to change. It covers the development, testing and the process undertaken to be able to implement the tubular stretcher bar as part of the business as usual operations of Network Rail.

The event will be held at: Network Rail's Offices in Milton Keynes.

Please arrive at 17:00 for a 17:15 start.

You must pre-register via the "REGISTER" button above for this talk by the evening of Wednesday 7th November for building security purposes.
