New gates in Bezděčín
The level crossing in Bezděčín is equipped with gates
Bezděčín, 03/12/ 2009 – The level crossing in Bezděčín in the Mladá Boleslav region on 25,852 km Nymburk - Rumburk of the railway section Dobrovice – Mladá Boleslav has been recently equipped with gates. The original level crossing safety installation without gates has been replaced with a new level crossing safety installation – type PZZ-RE with four-barrier-beam gates with automatic train control by means of an axle counter. The investor of the Reconstruction of the level crossing safety installation in the railway section Nymburk – Rumburk is the Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organization.
Ing. Jan Komárek, SŽDC Director General commented on today’s festive occasion: "Enhancing safety on the level crossings is one of SŽDC´s priorities. Since 2004 the State Fund of Transport Infrastructure has guaranteed and annually invested approximately CZK 150 MM. in reconstructions and modernizations of the level crossing safety installations on the level crossings of the busiest roads. Other reconstructions of the level crossing safety installations, and the constructions of fly-over crossings at the very most, are implemented within the main corridor constructions."
The condition-control of the level crossing safety installation is placed in the railway office of the railway station Mladá Boleslav – central station on a new level crossing control board. The technological part of the level crossing safety installation PZZ-RE including axle counters, diagnostics and the telecommunication equipment is placed in a new relay cabin at the level crossing. Within the construction the cable of the level crossing safety installation was put in the railway office of the railway station Mladá Boleslav hl. n. as were the cables to the level crossing road signals and to counter points of the axle counters. A part of the new level crossing safety installation is a long-distance-controlled sound signalling for the visually impaired.
"It is a most safe and reliable system which is automatically controlled by the train ride. It is possible to link it to all types of station and line safety and signalling installations, which is quite important for smooth operation," said Ing. Zdeněk Chrdle, AŽD Praha Director General.
The costs of the level crossing reconstruction in Bezděčín in the section Nymburk – Rumburk amount to CZK 10 498 528. The implementation was executed in November 2009.
