MAINTENANCE OF PERMANENT WAY ON USSR HEAVY TRAFFIC LINES

The world's highest freight traffic density in the USSR (37 million gross ton-km per km in 1976) involves special problems of maintenance. About 30% of the USSR network length has a freight traffic of more than 50 million ton-km and a number of double-track sections with an intensity of 100 to 120 million gross ton-km per kilometre per annum. The paper discusses some of the difficulties and problems of track maintenance due to high-intensity freight traffic.
