Fast, flexible, convenient, and cost-effective: trams and urban-suburban commuter railway systems are indeed attractive nowadays, down the whole line. And it's no wonder that the use of such services has become more and more popular. The growing positive importance of mass-rapid transport by rail, however, demands the ongoing development of innovative solutions and of new technologies with steadily improved cost effectiveness, safety, and environmental compatibility.
RAILONE has set the objective of making urban transit by rail even more attractive. With the RHEDA CITY ballastless track system, you too can realize greater mobility and flexibility in your city.
This saying is never more true than in mass rapid transit. Millions of people are underway by MRT, day in and day out. Effectively functioning mass transit is the heart of any city. In this sensitive zone of modern urban life, aesthetic standpoints are also gaining in importance, in addition to functionality and engineering. The Green Track contributes to beautifying the entire urban landscape. At the same time, Green Track models contribute to enhancement of municipal ecological balance, since they improve environmental conditions involving air, soil, and ground water. With the highly structured surface of the vegetated surfaces – as well as the elastic rail supports featured by advanced track models – these tracks offer more favourable characteristics for airborne and structure-borne noise. Nice for people, and nice for the environment.
RAILONE offers the following two ballastless track possibilities for Green Track:
The RHEDA CITY ballastless track system was developed especially for mass rapid transit, and is particularly effective for use with trams and commuter systems.
RHEDA CITY GREEN is the vegetated version of the RHEDA CITY system that has proven so successful for many years in mass rapid transit.
This ballastless track solution is characterized, in addition to its asphalt supporting layer, by being covered with turf or sedum vegetation.
