System LVT Traffic

LVT Traffic meets the requirements of modern rescue concepts for railway tunnels by making it possible for emergency vehicles with pneumatic tyres to drive on the track.

An additional in-situ concrete layer, which is applied to the first filling concrete layer in the LVT Traffic system, creates a roadway for rescue vehicles. The specially developed LVT Traffic supports are characterised by raised shoulders, which reduce the gap to the running edge of the rail to a minimum. Specially shaped formwork covers, which are made available for installation, ensure that the surrounding concrete is decoupled from the LVT supports. LVT Traffic thus offers all the advantages of the LVT-System.

LVT Traffic can also be used to create slab track crossings and provides a safe escape route for passengers during an evacuation in the tunnel.
