CNR STARTS PROGRAM TO INSTALL CONCRETE TIES ON SHARPER CURVES

Based on the stability and low maintenance requirements of a test section on concrete-tie track near Jasper, Alta., over four years, Canadian National has undertaken the replacement of wooden ties out-of-face with prestressed concrete cross ties and the existing jointed rail is being replaced with CWR. Installation procedure involves use of special types of equipment imported from Europe. Total of 1.5 million concrete ties will be installed over five-year period.
