To realize the commercial operation of 250 km/h on the Shin-Kansen network, the "Ballast-mat" which gives more elasticity to the track on elevated structures or tunnels was developed. The process of the development is here introduced through the construction of the ballast-mat, a field test, vibrogir tests, a follow-up examination and material tests in a laboratory. During the process, it became clear that the ballast-mat greatly contributes to the reduction of the cost for track maintenance, the prevention of the pulverization of ballast and the suppression of noise and vibration.
