Up to now most of the ballastless track systems, which have been built on Ballastless track systems using discrete rail seats as well as systems with sleeper . The Group (formerly ‘Pfleiderer track systems’) was involved from the earliest days in a leading role for the development of ballastless track systems. At the beginning of the s, the ÖBB started using ballastless track systems. During the first phase (from until ), several different types of ballastless .

Rail traffic is reaching out toward new horizons on ballastless track systems.

The arguments are indeed convincing: You take no chances with these systems, especially with newly constructed lines: In many cases, a maintenance-free track system is indeed the more ballawtless solution over the long run. For the first time, Deutsche Bahn AG applied this new technology on a full section of track: Ballastless tracks can be built on either asphalt or concrete supporting layers.


Ballastless Track

Track systems installed on asphalt supporting layers predominantly feature direct-support configurations: On the other hand, systems implemented with concrete supporting layers offer the selection among an optimal diversity of models with homogeneous system structures.

Starting from the basis of traditional trough-track designs with mono-block sleepers, RHEDA track models were further developed to track systems with bi-block sleepers.

Bi-block applications guarantee a safe and reliable bond between the sleeper and the infill concrete as well as easier handling. The restoration of the Berlin MRT system the S-Bahn enabled gaining of extensive valuable insights into the structural engineering of such track systems.


This experience resulted, for example, in further development of the full-block bi-block sleeper, ballastlesw design the type B TS-M. This sleeper is characterized by reduction in total structural height.

The engineering design of this model guarantees a high degree of exactness in track gauge, as well as in overall track geometry.

In addition, these modifications enabled further improvement in the bond of the sleeper in the structural concrete. Earlier RHEDA models occasionally developed longitudinal cracks between the trough and the infill concrete that could influence the long-term behaviour of the ballastless track system. This model was successfully implemented with mono-block sleepers on the Berlin-Hanover high-speed line, in Rathenow.
