Miami-Dade Transit purchases plastic rail ties

Posted on March 6, 2013

AXION International Holdings Inc. received its third purchase order for ECOTRAX plastic rail ties for Miami-Dade Transit, through a sale made by Eastern Rail Corp. Eastern Rail is a provider of innovative and technologically advanced transit products to Miami-Dade Transit and other private and public rail systems.

Miami-Dade Transit's Metrorail, which serves Miami-Dade County, has already installed and is using the rail ties received in two prior orders throughout its 24.4-mile elevated rapid transit system.

AXION has sold ECOTRAX rail ties to Eastern Rail Corp. for Miami-Dade Transit that range in size from 8.5 feet to 18 feet in length. This most recent purchase order increases Miami-Dade Transit's purchase of the rail ties to approximately 2,000, representing approximately one million pounds of plastic being recycled and diverted from landfills.
