Kirovgrad (Sverdlovsk region)
The second stage of railway track repair work has been completed in the Polymetal Production branch of Uralelectromed JSC (an enterprise of the UMMC metallurgical complex). A total of 82 running meters were repaired. The new track is built of 34 reinforced sleeper blocks (each weighing 7 tons), to which rails are attached. The block is covered with metal sheet panels on the outside, which makes it easy to clean the track surface from the remnants of raw materials - concentrates, quartzites, fluxes.
For safe work during unloading of raw materials, special transition platforms for personnel have been mounted on the repaired section of the track.
The first stage of the renovation was carried out in 2020. Then the sleeper block was used for the first time. The operation of the repaired 100-meter section during the year showed good results. The program for the repair of railway unloading fronts is designed until 2025. Step by step, within four years, using the proven technology, the railway workers plan to carry out repairs on two more transport arteries of the branch.
