The SPITZKE range of services for the track includes all individual works for complete track projects of all mainline, regional and connecting railways and for private railways, urban and underground railways and tramways. From the surveying to civil engineering, tamping work, track renewal using conventional and conveyor belt methods, track welding through to proper disposal of the old material – with us all work is performed with uniform quality from a single source. Regardless of whether as an individual service or complete contract. Our intelligent project management enables maximum results within the shortest possible time.
With our qualified employees and our own modern SPITZKE technology and rolling stock, we undertake ballast cleaning and renewal work, and the repair and renewal of rails, sleepers and points. Depending on the task, we implement the measures both conventionally and using conveyor-belt methods for all line speeds and track forms.
A proper substructure ensures the longevity of the track. On laying the formation protection layer –either conventionally or using conveyor-belt methods – we create a reliable, long-term substructure for every requirement. Including the corresponding drainage systems, cable ducts and crossings. In-house geologists ensure the quality of our work results, even in difficult soil conditions.
Positionally stable, continuous tracks and points ensure rail traffic that is gentle on the wheels and low noise. At SPITZKE we therefore use aluminothermic (AS), arc welding jointing and deposit welding using electric (E) and E-MF processes and the making of Münch-thermite (MT) insulated rail joints.
The safety requirements on railway construction sites are high. We face this challenge and undertake all safety and traffic control measures within the track area. We discuss and coordinate in detail with the respective infrastructure operator and the contractors, whether automatic warning systems (ATWS), fixed barriers (FA) or personnel protection measures are to be used. By merging our track construction and safety know-how we continuously develop existing safety systems. For example, FATWS, an reduced noise construction site safety innovation invented by us in-house.
An important part of our track expertise is our special services for infrastructure operators, for the operators of rail vehicles and companies in the railway construction segment.
In addition to our 24/7 emergency management service, among other things, we also service, maintain and repair track-laying machines, track-laying equipment, locomotives, and overhead line installation vehicles in our workshops or on construction sites. The performance of inspections, reconditioning and modernising rail vehicles and locomotives complement our range of services.
In the winter months our winter service clears snow and ice from railway systems. We ensure reliable clearance of tracks and point with annual contracts.
