The author discusses the conditions necessary for technically and economically acceptable track construction on high-speed routes with mixed-traffic working, taking into consideration the track alignment and the construction elements. Already at the planning and design stage, the track-building conditions and economical maintenance of heavily-worked routes must be given full consideration, and also adhered to later during regular operation. Proper staff training is also important. But further tests, for example with concrete-slab track structure under heavy working loads, are necessary before final decisions are made.
