LRSSB Light Rail Technical Note (LRTN) 1.0 - Review of sand drags Phase 1
Summary of changes
The terminus design of tramway systems include requirements to safely halt a tram that may have overrun the normal limit of operation. Buffer stops are a traditional solution, but they have some disadvantages in a tramway environment. It is possible to entirely avoid terminating tracks in public areas by using loop tracks instead of dead-ends, but this requires more complex track layouts and additional space.
