CONCRETE TRACK TRIALS IN HOLLAND

Concrete deck sections carried directly on piling supports have been installed on an industrial branch line extending across low load bearing terrain by Netherlands Railways. The design of non-settling track for districts with poor subsoils has been under way for 8 years. Details of the installation costs and advantages and problems are detailed. Track is layed about 1.5 m above the surrounding ground and comparison with normal earth embankments is made.
