MEASURES AGAINST LATERAL VIBRATIONS OF SLAB TRACK (EXCERPT A LECTURE)

JNR track maintenance section is located about the center of the Seto Inland Sea area and is engaged in the maintenance of the track extending about 57.5 km. The track structure comprises slab track 41 km long, and ballasted track 16.5 km, the former accounting for 71%. The slab track of this section has improved in condition every year since March 1975 when the track was opened for service, and entered a stable period several years ago. On the other side of the coin, lateral vibrations become conspicuous recently for the reasons partly still unknown. The author mentions some of the measures taken by the maintenance section.
