TUNNEL CATENARY OF THE URBAN RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM RHINE-MAIN (RIVERS) IN WEST GERMANY

DIE TUNNELFAHRLEITUNG DER S-BAHN RHEIN-MAIN

The catenary installations of the Rhine-Main rapid transit system have essentially been designed according to the parameters of the counterpart in Munich (West Germany). Because of different systems of tunnel construction and special structural conditions, extensive special structural measures were necessary. Therefore the supports and anchors of the catenary, switching equipment and feeding installations had to be installed by appropriate arrangements in the clear spaces between the structural elements and the normal structure gage. In general, only limited use could be made of the clear space. This required appropriate intensive and extensive job planning. The application of special working techniques during the installation of the catenary was the precondition for a rational, trouble-free realization of all catenary work.
