“The lasting solution – In the area of high-speed rail traffic, slab tracks have become established as an alternative to standard sleepers in traditional ballast roadbeds. The different slab track concepts either make use of (concrete) troughs into which the sleepers are cast, or precast slabs are installed, which already contain the necessary rail seats.” From

“Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) keeps you updated on the traffic situation as it develops and to the nearest 100m. The system also calculates what delays are to be expected and recommends detours. This keeps you precisely informed of the traffic situation on the planned route and potential alternative routes at all times. As a result you can react to tailbacks and road closures in good time and avoid them.” From
