All Aboard Florida prepares to start double-track work

All Aboard Florida prepares to start double-track work :All Aboard Florida is preparing to receive the first set of rail it needs to add a second train track to the Florida East Coast Railway line.

Forty-one sections of rail spanning roughly 6 miles are expected to be delivered this weekend to areas between West Palm Beach and Miami. The double tracks will allow two trains to pass each other at the same time.

Each rail section, or “stick,” is 1,600 feet long and weighs 72,533 pounds.

The ballasts and concrete ties have already been delivered. Construction of the second track is expected to begin in about four weeks.

“Double tracking will increase capacity in the corridor, allowing the introduction of the passenger train service to operate jointly with the existing freight trains, said Adrian Share, All Aboard’s EVP Rail Infrastructure. “The rail sticks are the last components necessary to begin this double track construction.”

All Aboard Florida plans to run 32 trains a day along the FEC tracks with stops in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. All Aboard Florida plans to launch service between Miami and West Palm Beach in 2017. The West Palm Beach-to-Orlando span is expected to begin by the end of 2017.
