20.04.2018 Dealing with Landslide of Railway Embankment in Dalovice – Hájek Line Section

Preliminary results of the geological survey carried out in the area of a railway embankment part landslide in the Dalovice - Hájek line section demonstrated that the originally considered option of putting the open line track No 1 into emergency operation was not feasible for reasons of safety preservation. The superstructure and substructure remains are not consistent and are geologically unstable. These days there is no way to assure provisional operation in this section. The situation is also complicated due to very restricted access for heavy machinery.
