Severe Weather Incident Management

UK: Adhesion Working Group

Four weather stations have been commissioned on behalf of the Adhesion Working Group in order to more fully understand the prevailing conditions in times of severe wheel slip due to moisture on the railhead rather than evident leaf contamination.

A variety of weather data is recorded every 15 minutes and archived every hour from the weather stations sited at Diss, Ipswich, Winchfield and Winchester.

The major elements are displayed in the table below and additional elements can be viewed via the pop up markers on the corresponding map.

Additional Feature: Location onClick provides a dynamic archive of the last 24 hrs.
