Next generation of high performance turnout renewals

The renewal projects for turnouts and crossovers are very demanding: the possession windows are short, the working space around turnouts and crossover can be very constrained due to their location within the rail network and access to site can be limited and narrow. The usage of large track construction or renewal trains is not very productive; the complete closure of adjacent tracks is not always possible or needs to be avoided for most of the time. In many cases track closures of 24hrs or more are common practice but this can be an unsatisfactory long interruption of train traffic. In addition a lot of people with complementing skills are working within a limited space that increases safety risks. Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group (RSRG) has developed a methodology to reduce the required possession time and to bring the number of people on site to an optimum. In-house developed machines will be combined with well-known and proven technologies as well as implementing training programmes for a multi-skilled workforce.
