RFF Refurbishment Railway Tunnel des Montets in France by Edilon Sedra

RFF Refurbishment Railway Tunnel des Montets in France by Edilon Sedra :Located in the valley, the tunnel of Montets has a double feature, unique in France and elsewhere:

It has been converted to a railway tunnel which can be used also by automobiles trucks/cars when the Col des Montets is closed to traffic due to winter weather conditions!

This operation is part of the modernization which should contribute modal shift in the sensitive alpine valley.

ERS Embedded Rail System has changed the concept of discretely supported rails by means of sleepers or blocks, into continuously supported rails.

By virtue of the position-stable integration of the rails into a concrete or steel channel structure, track loads have a negligible effect on track gauge, position and buckling.

This homogeneous elastic support is providing the same dynamic spring and damping behavior as e.g. ballasted track under traffic load, but completely eliminates the influences of individual rail seats or sleepers. Track loads become more evenly spread and dynamic load amplification is getting lower. Lateral stability and high vertical elasticity offer a high degree of protection against corrugation avoiding the necessity for a regular rail grinding.

The primary characteristics of the ERS Embedded Rail System is based on CorkelastÂź. This provides elastic bonding to the rail and the supporting rail channels. The water tightness of the system results in corrosion protection of the rail and in a perfect electrical isolation, i.e. avoids stray-current issues.

By the flat surface of the embedded rail tripping hazards are eliminated for pedestrians, bikes and wheelchairs. Moreover the embedded rail is pilferage-proof and protected against vandalism, i.e. no loose iso-parts and mechanical fasteners which need to be regularly monitored and maintained.

The unique, proven, reliable two component embedding compound assures outstanding position stability over decades — along with simple and very efficient installation.
