The city of Bucharest in Romania faces substantial daily costs and effort in maintaining its existing metro lines. Cost and maintenance considerations were the driving factors for the operator Metrorex S.A. to choose a new and durable track fastening system for the new Metro Line 5: edilon)(sedra Corkelast® EBS (Embedded Block System).
In total, 15 km of Corkelast® EBS track, including 10 metro stations and a depot, have been installed in Bucharest. In order to comply with the latest European standards, the decision was taken to apply the Corkelast® EBS, in medium stiffness.
In areas sensitive to frequency vibrations, such as the Romanian National Opera, edilon)(sedra Trackelast® STM (Slab Track Mats) are utilised. Trackelast® STM is an elastic mat specifically designed for damping of dynamic loads and vibrations of ballastless tracks using “in situ” poured concrete or prefabricated concrete slabs. The easy to install mats perform optimally under long-term permanent stress and under various climatic conditions.
The supply of a virtually maintenance-free track system, specifically designed for damping of dynamic loads and vibrations.
In areas sensitive to frequency vibrations, a combination of edilon)(sedra Corkelast® EBS and edilon)(sedra Trackelast® mats has been applied.
A future-proofed track system for Metrorex S.A.
