This technology is being used for the first time in India in the construction of the first regional rail of the country. The Precast Track Slab technology produces high-capacity ballastless track slabs that have a longer life cycle and require less maintenance. Due to this, the overall life-cycle cost of the track is also low.
These precast track slabs come in 4 m x 2.4 m sizes and are being manufactured at a factory in Shatabdi Nagar in UP’s Meerut under the Make in India initiative.
With this new track slab technology, NCRTC will be able to run high speed and high-frequency RRTS trains and ensure safety and comfort of passengers during operation with design and average speed of 180 kmph and 100 kmph respectively.
