TESTING OF NON-BALLASTED TRACK IN FRANCE AND OTHER COUNTRIES

ESSAIS DE VOIE SANS BALLAST EN FRANCE ET A L'ETRANGER

This brief summary of the latest experiments with track on slabs in France and other countries stresses, for each type of track-laying, the original character of the tests. An examination of the advantages and drawbacks of the various laying methods reveals the value there would be in carrying out fresh research aimed at reducing the maintenance costs for conventional track, since the laying of track on concrete slabs does not appear to be indicated, even for speeds in the region of 300 km/h.
