Track Design For Line Speed Improvement
The line has a power supply for traction through an overhead line electrification system. The new traffic flow also requires traffic with a heavier axle weight to run that would increase from 20 tonnes to 25 tonnes. With the new traffic flow, tilting trains, as well as conventional passenger stopping train, will be non stop. The proposal also includes the design of a transition curve. The transition curve will run along a straight track to a curved track and vice versa. The transition curve will allow the trains to shift from one track to the other. The access of the main lines will be required at a minimum speed of 50 kilometers per hour, and about 50 trains are expected to use the track every day. It is also in the proposal that a new turnout for a freight depot is to be constructed.
The steps and procedures of the track laying and inspection of the survey are the same. Different trackwork may vary with different approaches. With the definition of route surveying, it is composed of all survey operations necessary for the design and construction of engineering works such as railroads. It is associated with different highway design and construction. …
This is very important because the engineers will be able to inform us about the situation of the railroad track, and therefore we can include in our report the present situation of the tracks. We can gather data from the incumbent engineer so that we would know what design we should do because we were informed about them. Moreover, we would know how to go about all the problems we will be incurring in the design. We must also review the track geometry information for the route. From the result of all the data gathering that we did, we can finally pinpoint where the problems are and what are the underlying causes of the problems.
