04.05.2012 Reconstruction of the platform in Šťáhlavy on the line České Budějovice - Plzeň may be revolutionary
The upcoming reconstruction of the platform in train stop Šťáhlavy (Plzeň-south) on the line České Budějovice – Plzeň may bring about a radical change of procedures applied within legislative duties to reduce over-limit noisiness of the surrounding built-up area in connection with the railway traffic. This is currently made possible only when using noise barriers or earth embankments. This construction, the investor of which is the Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organization (SŽDC), is going to test for the very first time the new type of the platform edge equipped with noise absorbing matrices of recycled rubber on the front (track-adjoining vertical) surface. The new type of the platform edge H 130 disposes of a distinct antiskid design of the contact surface. The platform edge is still 550 mm over the top of rail to allow an easier access and exit for passengers. The contractor of the construction is Skanska a.s.
The railway section between Prague – main station and Beroun is one of the busiest lines in the Czech Republic. The line is frequently used for long-distance passenger and freight transport as well as for suburban passenger basic interval traffic. SŽDC as the rail operator has therefore prepared a complex of required repair work of the most timeworn sections. Traffic closures start on Friday, 4th May.
