CONSTRUCTION OF RAILWAY OVERPASSES WHILE SERVICES CONTINUE TO OPERATE

BAUVERFAHREN FUER EISENBAHNUEBERFUEHRUNGEN UNTER IN BETRIEB BEFINDLICHEN GLEISANLAGEN

The construction of railway overpasses while rail services continue to be operated on the route largely without interference calls for thorough planning of the individual stages of the work. Since there is no procedure which is equally suitable and economical for every possible circumstance, the merits and demerits of the various methods of working must be carefully weighed. These are described by the author, and include the following: bypassing of the actual construction site, temporary single-track working, or either-direction working building with the aid of temporary structures, sliding the bridge superstructure into position, pushing into place with substitute sleeper carriers, and moving whole structures into position by means of hydraulic presses. All these methods have their particular field of application, and each is constantly being improved and extended.
