Interesting modern track joint

Well I thought it was....
I presume the wooden sleepers are used specifically for the joint between the FB and BH rail? But neither m friend or I, who are both pretty familiar with up-close views of railway lines, know not why this may be so....

There are steel sleepers to the left and Concrete to the right. Timber sleepers are used to transition between these two types of sleeper.

They look like copper-clad sleepers to me. Must have been cut from one really big PCB!
