Tallinn TramlineConcrete Track Slab
Project Name: Tallinn Tramline
Location: Tallinn, Estonia
Application: Concrete Track Slab
For the 16km long expansion of the Tallinn Tramline, Adfil introduced Macro Synthetic Fibres as a primary concrete reinforcement to replace the original design with steel reinforcement.
The concrete railway slab enables grass to be growing between and along the rails, and so create a green belt around the city of Tallinn.
A design calculation with a professional indemnity insurance was offered to project owner for the slab under the tracks. In this way problems regarding costs, durability, stray currents and construction time were avoided.
- The use of FRC reduces the labour time and related costs enormously. Because the reinforcement arrives on site mixed in the concrete.
- Improved Health and Safety because no handling, cutting and fixing of steel mesh is required
- No stray currents due to the absence of ferromagnetic particles in MSFRC
- Increased durability as synthetic fibres do not rust
