Bringing green to track systems

Creation of additional green surfacesWhy take a long trip in search of Mother Nature – when we can bring her downtown for you? After all, we expect mass rapid transit to be not only environmentally friendly, but that it also makes life in the city a little more worth living. Owing to its appealing optical impression and its favourable environmental characteristics, the Travertec "Green Track" is an outstanding choice for mass rapid transit. The ATD-G ballastless track system has been designed for applications for trams and surface commuter railways in downtown areas. The ATD-G is primarily characterized by bi-block concrete sleepers directly supported by an asphalt layer. A lateral-force base support effectively secures the track span. The system can be covered by turf or sedum plants, in various heights.

The advantages:

  • Creation of additional green surfaces 
  • Reduction in the emission of airborne and structure-borne noise
  • Permanent stability of the track position, and long life-cycle
  • Greater simplicity and transparency in the system structure
  • Flexibility in layout of the line
  • Ease of installation by a high degree of mechanization
  • Short construction time, low maintenance costs, and high levels of availability
  • Only slight disturbance of motorized individual traffic during construction; uni-directional track installation is possible
  • Ease of cleaning
  • Modular adaptation to a variety of construction forms
  • Great effectiveness in application for main-track and turnout systems
  • Great resistance to corrosion caused by parasitic current

More comfort over the long run

As supporting layer, asphalt offers the unique advantage that track positioning even further improves over the course of time. The elastic bond between the track panel and the asphalt supporting layer assures constant track geometry.
