Purpose and goal

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The goal is to alleviate the problems with cumbersome, maintenance-intensive and dirty gears that greatly affect the operational safety, resource consumption and punctuality of rail-bound city traffic, and to completely eliminate the strong vibrations and high impulse noises that today´s rail-borne city traffic gives rise to.

Expected results and effects

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** In the project´s fourth work package, a compilation of test results, analysis, risk assessments, etc. is made and this material will then be submitted to the Swedish Transport Agency, to form the basis for the board´s approval assessment. With Efter Transportstyrelsens´s approval, the level crossing with vertically movable junction tip can be built into the rail-borne urban traffic network, and where this happens, the strong vibrations and high impulse sounds that the rail-borne city traffic gives rise to disappear.

Planned approach and implementation

** Denna text är maskinöversatt ** The project consists of four work packages for manufacturing (component manufacturing, assembly and assembly), installation, testing and evaluation. The work packages have been described in more detail in the project description and will be followed.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
