Issue 1 2017 / 31 January 2017 /

Following the inauguration of the Jubilee line in the later part of the 20th century, its subsequent extension by means of the Jubilee Line Extension in 1999 warranted stringent measures against structural vibration. London Underground enlisted the assistance of Getzner Werkstoffe GmbH for a suitable solution for its baseplate pads.
