After a period of preparatory work, our contracting partner Gülermak has started the installation of the edilon)(sedra Corkelast® Embedded Block System (EBS) for the 2nd extension of Warsaw Metro Line 2. The first EBS units are in situ installed in the slab track!
The total project includes 20 km of EBS single track, including 8 stations and a technical depot. The newly built metro tunnels will run directly under densely inhabited areas. For this reason, the investor Warsaw Metro set strict requirements for durability and vibration
control. The contract includes edilon)(sedra Trackelast® vibration damping PU-mats for the most sensitive noise and vibration mitigation areas and 41 EBS switches and crossings.
Online EBS installation training
Recently, as part of the Warsaw Metro Line 2 project, our Track Services department gave an online EBS installation training to the responsible track construction companies. During the training working methods and various challenges were discussed, such as:
– How to level and align EBS on our Trackelast® STM (Slab Track Mats)
– How to realise and secure an accurate track position and gauge with EBS alignment portals
– How to pour in situ concrete under and around the aligned EBS trays
Clear working methods are important to ensure safer, faster, more accurate and easier track construction. These training offerings are an important part of our full-service project support: from the very early track design phase to the supply and construction of our track systems.
