Location Rabat, Morocco
Project Track renewal ‘Tunnel de Rabat Ville’
Length 1.300 m double track
Rail profile 60E1
Details The track renovation was part of a larger tunnel renovation in which the reinforcement of the tube structure reduced the tunnel clearance. In order to compensate this reduction, Corkelast® HSTS and Corkelast® ERS were chosen as systems for the replacement of the old ballasted tracks. The systems contributed to a favorable tunnel clearance by lowering the level of the rail significantly. The concrete slab was built in only 2 weeks. Both the rail and the Corkelast® ERS were installed in only 5 days per track! ONCF was extremely satisfied with this accomplishment. The ERS design is in accordance with the SNCF Corkelast® ERS approval and in full compliance with EN13481-5:2012.
