Impact to Residents

The works will need to be carried out overnight. The working speed of the milling machine, about walking speed, means the machine will not be outside any residence for more than a few minutes. Whilst every effort will be made to keep noise to a minimum, some noise may be heard from the machine as it passes by. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Reason for the works and potential benefits

Rail milling is a process that cuts material from the rail head to remove defects and restore the rail head profile, which is essential to ensure trams can continue to operate safely. Milling is a deeper intervention than rail grinding, removing up to 0.9 mm of material in a single pass over the rails as compared to rail grinding, which requires multiple passes at each site to remove 0.1 mm.
