An innovative railway track construction process

The railway track construction process has not really changed over the past couple of years. However, the lack of development in this industry segment does not mean that it cannot be perfected even further. The groundbreaking way of laying ballastless tracks by Stabirail has proven to be the new and only way to lay railways tracks in modern times. The superior stability, the absence of deformation and a shallower construction height are just some of the advantages ballastless tracks have to offer. Its traditional counterparts are officially history with this new method. Make sure to read on to discover how these slab tracks are laid.

How does the railway track construction process work?

Stabirail has designed and developed a cost-effective way of laying railway tracks, especially in tunnels and train stations. It can be assembled directly on the concrete bed with a special sequence of machines and trains. It starts with a concrete milling machine, which lays the concrete bedding with millimeter accuracy. It operates with a special 3D-system and is capable of working on parabolic transitional curves and transitional slopes. This machine is followed by diamond drilling train, which drills the holes to anchor the tracks. Finally, the anchoring train rides through and anchors the tracks into place. This railway construction process is very quick and offers minimal vibrations and dust formation.

Choose ballastless tracks

When choosing ballastless tracks in this innovative railway track construction process, you are guaranteed a shorter construction time and lower costs. These tracks have a longer design life and a low whole-life cost, as they are very low maintenance. These rails can be used for railway tracks, high speed railways, railway tunnels and train washing systems. Make sure to get in touch with Stabirail for more information. They are more than happy to find the perfect solution for your project.
