The Centre for Geomechanics and Railway Engineering (CGRE) hosted a Workshop on Latest Railway Research at Wollongong (Australia) on the 14th of April. The workshop aimed to promote transport infrastructure concepts and geotechnical applications in practice with particular reference to railways.

The topics covered in the workshop focused on the research developments untaken at the CGRE  in relation to performance of rail infrastructure in terms of design, construction and maintenance.

The workshop was attended by over 25 industry representatives from numerous institutions involved in rail track design, construction and delivery of railway projects and railway corporations. The presentations throughout the day were well received by an audience of over 40 people.
