Quality Requirement for Railway Turnouts

The track of the main lane must be laid according to the standard of the permanent track , and the cut-eye track shall be laid according to the temporary track standards. When laying track, it must be laid strictly in accordance with the design of the central line of the track.
Gauge: 600mm, spacing of sleeper: 800mm. When the rail head should be lapped, a sleeper should be laid on each side of the rail head at the 240mm. No sleeper shall be laid at the rail joint.

Standard for laying track of main and secondary roadways:

  • 24kg/m rail is used in main and secondary roadway, track fastening should be complete, bolt should be fastened, and it should be in accordance with rail type. The clearance of the rail joint shall not be greater than 5mm, the height and the left and right deviation shall not be greater than 2mm, and no hard bending occurs.
  • The gauge should be 600mm, and the track deviation of straight section and widened curve should be -2mm~+5mm. The difference between the top surface of the two rails in the straight section and the deviation between the outer rail of the curve segment and the top surface of the inner rail should not be greater than 5mm after the design of the outer rail.
  • The standard cement sleeper should be used in the main roadway, and the timber sleeper should be used in the secondary roadway. The distance between sleepers should be 800mm and the deviation of sleeper spacing should be less than 50mm.
