Having a hard time with finding the right construction process for your railway track? Till this day, a lot of tracks have movement in them, which makes travelling with public transport a risk. 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 laying railway tracks in concrete beds, they save a lot of valuable time in the laying procedure of the railway track.
How does the railway track laying procedure work?
The construction process of a railway track has not changed much since the invention of train travel. That is until a Belgium-based company revolutionized their railway track construction process and laying procedure. Stabirail figured that using slab tracks instead of wooden sleepers had many advantages. Every day they are laying more kilometers of track. With the arrival of a milling machine, the production of the tracks is happening very smoothly. Due to the simplified railway track laying procedure, the tracks are safer than ever before because it leads to superior stability. This construction process makes the railway track more reliable and lower in maintenance. Mounting rails was never this easy.
A longer lifespan is guaranteed with slab tracks
The train and the way of traveling on it have changed dramatically over the years. That does not apply to the tracks. They have stayed the same for all those years. You can imagine what our fast transport system does with these old, wooden tracks. It makes them less reliable and over the years they start to move. Stabirail developed a more secure way of the railway track laying procedure. Their ballastless slab tracks rest on concrete. This concrete has been poured in a certain way to make it stronger. During the construction process of the railway, the track is directly attached to the concrete. This makes the tracks especially suitable for subway or metro construction, and it guarantees a longer lifespan.
