The constant concern of the people responsible for track maintenance is to reduce the cost of the work whilst preserving or even improving the quality of the track. To reach this objective it is necessary to agree on a maintenance policy, improve track design, adapt maintenance standards and methods to requirements in the best way, and, finally, develop mechanisation. The author explains what is done on the SNCF in these different areas and where efforts should be directed in future.
