When new lines are constructed they must meet requirements as regards speed, safety and comfort. In addition, precisely defined techniques are employed.

Although it might appear very straightforward, the construction of a railway track requires the most advanced technology and construction and maintenance uses sophisticated equipment.

A new line consists of two tracks.

  • The 1st track is supplied with equipment from a temporary track.
  • The 2nd track is laid adjacent to the first and is supplied with equipment from the first.
