Reconstruction will improve parameters of the line Hranice na Moravě – Horní Lideč
Vsetín, 26 September 2013 – Improving parameters of the line Hranice na Moravě – Horní Lideč is the objective of the reconstruction that will be carried out this autumn by the Railway Infrastructure Administration. Works on one track between the Vsetín and Vlašská Polanka will result i.a. in a calmer train ride, enabled by building a continuous welded rail.
Builders will concentrate on a section more than one kilometre long near the Ústí u Vsetína community. After completing the reconstruction, line speed of 80 km/h will remain, however the proposed technical solution will enable its increase up to 85 – 95 km/h in the long term.
Several bridges will undergo reconstruction. In km 34.776 all bridge bearers and wall plates will be exchanged. The bridge steel bearing structure will be elevated in order to enable extraction and refurbishment of its saddle. The abutment’s bedding and lower part will be injected by a cement mixture. Cracked weld joints on the hand-rail balusters will be trued up and welded.
Bridge bearers and both wall plates will be exchanged also on the near bridge over the Senice stream. Steel constructions including bottom plates will acquire new coasting. A part of the lower construction sanitation will be cracks repair, masonry cleaning, deep pointing and injection of the abutment.
The unsatisfactory state of the contact line will require a complete exchange. Builders will also carry out shifts and repairs of communication equipment cables. Safety equipment will remain with an exchange of two signals.
The construction has been submitted for co-financing from the EU Cohesion Fund by the intermediary of the Operational Programme Transport for the programme period 2007–2013. Financing from national resources will be assured by the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure.
