MEASURES AGAINST LATERAL VIBRATIONS OF SLAB TRACK (AN EXERPTION FROM A LECTURE MADE AT 36TH TRACK MAINTENANCE LECTURE MEETING)

The 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 has entered a stable period from several years ago. On the other side of the coin, lateral vibration became conspicuous recently for reasons partly still unknown. The general history of repair of the slab track is described.
