Railway track construction has been done by the same process for the past decades. With modern technology, however, we can think differently about the way we lay tracks. The company Stabirail has developed a railway construction process using ballastless or slab track. Such track offers greater stability, experiencing no deformation, offering comfort at high speed and many more advantages. These tracks have a very short construction time and can be accomplished in very shallow locales. With Stabirail based in Belgium they have the perfect location for distributing their expertise and products. Read on to learn more about how this unique method of railway track construction process works.
The laying of ballastless tracks
Ballastless tracks created by Stabirail can be assembled easily in several steps. To start, a train with a concrete milling machine passes through, cutting out rail beds from the concrete with millimeter accuracy. Next up is the drilling train, cutting holes for the anchoring of the tracks with a diamond tip drill. Finally the anchoring train passes through, anchoring the tracks in their final place. The primary advantage of this railway track construction process is that it is done very quickly, while still remaining perfectly accurate. In addition it ensures maintenance costs remain low, as ballastless tracks enjoy a very long service life.
The tracks for a perfect railway solution
Slab tracks are perfect for when you have very shallow tunnels. Little to no headroom is needed to assemble these tracks. Ballastless or slab tracks are perfect for railway tunnels, train stations and train washing systems! Interested in the slab track solutions Stabirail has to offer?
