DIRECT CONCRETE ENCASING OF NON-BALLASTED AND SLEEPER-LESS HIGH-SPEED TRACKS

UNMITTELBARES EINBETONIEREN BETTUNGS-UND SCHWELLENLOSER SCHNELLFAHRGLEISE

The Kolner Verkenrs-Betriebe AG has developed a track without ballast or sleepers which can be laid in tunnels, on bridges and on normal earth formations. The rails with their fastenings are mounted in their exact position on strong assembly equipment and then immediately encased in concrete. The track is built, so to say, from the top downwards. The system is cheaper than the experimental methods tried out by the German Federal Railway, and should also be capable of being developed for the latter's new routes.
