Upgrading, yes, but a sustainable, one worth Name!
Regrettably, “state of the art”, neither was designed for current demand – and in no respect, nor for future!
Predective, “optimal maintenance”, is suboptimal, just “virtue of a necessity”.
TEN-T, now is cementing and devastating.
(Capacity and utilisation of assets shall not be obstructed, by machineries on tracks -virtually damaging!)
High quality calls for low and safely limited system forces – and provides for low energy radiated (noise).
