For a long time railway sleepers have been made of wood. And did you know that a lot of railways in the world are still using wood? But as you can imagine, these tracks cannot handle the stress our public transport systems puts on them. That is why a Belgium company started testing a modern approach to the construction process and laying procedure of a railway track. Stabirail found out that the usage of slab tracks is more efficient for our transport system. But they tend to have a labor-intensive construction process. And that is when the company created ballastless tracks to allow then to work faster with lower maintenance costs.
Railway track construction with this company is an easy process
Are you searching for an innovative way for a construction process for railway track? A specialized company in construction and engineering is there to help you out. The use of concrete sleepers fixed this a little, but the tracks are still not good enough for our current transport system. Because the railway track laying procedure is an intensive process, Stabirail tried to find a solution. And they did. Instead of using wood, the use of ballastless tracks makes the process much less intensive. The slab tracks are directly attached to the concrete to make them reliable and low in maintenance. By applying them directly to the concrete, they save a lot of valuable time in the laying procedure of the railway track.
The ballastless slab tracks have many advantages
Over the past few years, we have seen much development in trains. However, the railway tracks operate on the same system for many years. There are made of wooden sleepers with a lot of movement. This makes them not reliable for our current transport system. Stabirail developed a way to solve this, without having an intensive laying procedure for the railway track. With the usage of ballastless or slab tracks the rails do not move after they have been laid. Besides that, they are very low in maintenance which saves companies a lot of money. But that is not all. The advantages also include a longer lifespan of the tracks and an outstanding track geometry. The company even developed a way to make the construction process easier by mounting the railway track directly to the concrete
