The client asked us to optimize the gridiron of the industrial railway station. The problem was that the main running routes lead to the public use station, while the supply of wagons to the workshop was blocked. That significantly hampered the work of the station.
An increase in the volume of shunting work and the formation of route shipments led to an increase in the turnover of wagons and increase in stand-by time of wagons on the railway tracks. It is clear that any down-time cars worth money, and inability to supply wagons to the shop slows down the pace of production in general.
To solve this problem, we reconstructed the neck of the railway station, built additional railroad tracks for the formation of routes and the sagging of the wagons.
The main problem in the implementation of the project was a section of the railway track under the overpass with communications that could not be carried, but it was necessary to observe the dimensions of the rolling stock.
All this allowed to reduce the time for the formation of route shipments due to the reduction of additional shunting work, to process the loading fronts and the selection of wagons during the formation of route shipments, to create a road development reserve for mastering prospective plans for shipment of finished products.
