CONTRACT FOR REPLACEMENT OF WOOD SLEEPERS ON THE BEIRA BAIXA LINE – ENTRONCAMENTO / RODÃO

The Works in the scope of this contract consisted essentially in the replacement
of wood sleepers (previously marked by REFER’s staff) by other ones also in wood.

This replacement took place right on the track, on ADs, on AMVs and on small bridges.

In this way, and after the marking of the sleepers that REFER wanted to be replaced, a topographic survey was carried out to check all the elements needed
to their correct placement and adequacy to the existing conditions.

The adequacy of the new sleepers to the existing conditions of the place, defined
as adzing, was performed on Site at the Abrantes Station, with the subsequent transportation of the sleepers ready to be placed to the respective work front.
