Based on experience from the introduction of high-speed traffic on the "October" network (Moscow-Leningrad), the article considers the particular characteristics of routine track maintenance on high-speed lines, and gives recommendations for this maintenance for speeds of up to 200 km/h. According to the article, the specific requirements of routine track maintenance, when traffic speeds rise to 200 km/h confirm that man-power demands do not increase beyond 12-15%. This increase is determined in advance by the higher standard of inspection and protection of the track. The increase in speeds up to 200 km/h in passenger transport will not therefore lead to any appreciable increase in expenditure for routine track maintenance, but will require a reduction in the intervals between the periodical engineering work on the line.
