MISC | Double Track Railways

Here in Turkey, 95% of TCDD network is single track even most of Istanbul-Ankara is single. This causes a lot delays in train services.

http://www.trainsofturkey.com/maps/t...004_jpc_v6.gif

This map shows TCDD's double and single tracks.

What is the amount of double (and more) tracks and single tracls in your country?

In Malaysia...

The KTMB (Malayan Railway) total route kilometres : 1,699 km

Current double tracked network totalling 329 km...of which,

- Rawang - Seremban (main line) = 105 km
- Rawang - Ipoh (also part of the main line) = 179 km
- Sentul - Port Klang = 45 km

Current double tracking projects :

- Ipoh - Padang Besar = 329 km
- Seremban - Gemas = 94.14 km
- Sentul - Batu Caves = 7.2 km

The other network, such as KLIA Ekspres/ Transit operated by ERL, also double track......with 57 km in length....

Brilliant find.

Quite a bit of the network in England is four-track, especially on the east and west coast mainlines.

In portugal we have some: (aproximated figures)


~600km of double track
~50km with 3/4 tracks
~65km of single track with the trackbed for the 2nd line already built for future upgrade , mostly awaiting for electrification and automatic signaling (works expected to begin before years end) so as to be possible to use them at speeds of 250km/h
~70km of single track with speed limits above 200/220 km/h
~2000km of single track (of wich more than 500km electrified , most of them recently , 20km under electrification process , 220km planned for the next year and following times , more to be electrified as soon as the HST project reaches their neighbourhood)


some 25km of railway are currently under construction , 20km being electrified , 800/900km(rough estimate) are currently under various stages of pre-construction and pre-upgrade with works aready scheduled.

- 160/200km of HSL and more than 50km of conventional rails (all double track) are about to have their contractors anounced late this year or early next year (contractors already delivered their proposals and final anouncement is in the next months)
- in the next 5/10 years a LOT of new railways are to be constructed and/or upgraded over here ...

The sections of 4-track that I know are;

London Bridge to Orpington. 15-20 km.
Shortlands to Swanley. Not much.
London Bridge to East Croydon.
Victoria - East Croydon - to the M23 after Three Bridges. About 40 km.
Waterloo - Basingstoke. About 60 km.
Paddington to a few miles past Didcot Parkway. About 70km
Euston - the Trent Valley and soon all the way along the Trent Valley. Over 100 km. (Counts the split via Northampton)
St Pancras - between Bedford and Wellingborough, About 60-70km. Then after Leicester its quad track again all the way to Long Eaton, and the mainly freight bypass between Nottingham and Derby contines the quadding until nearrly Chesterfield. I think it used to be quad all the way from St Pancras, which would have been about 200km.
Kings cross to Huntingdon - again this used to be quad all the way to Peterborough. About 70-80km.
Liverpool St - Shenfield. About 30 km.

There's loads more around the other cities and on the main lines that I don't know about. And also loads that were reduced to two track. The Chiltern line into Birmingham all the way out to nearly Leamington, perhaps these can be reinstated one day.

In France, there are 29 973 km of tracks, 16 461 km (55%) are double (or more) tracked.

The map:

Since 2007, there are works to (re)double the tracks on the line between Grenoble (Moirans) and Valence:




The 2nd track had been removed in 1958...

Four-track line in Britain:

And the other end of the scale - single-track:

In the case of Denmark it is just under half that is double tracked. According to the latest figures (from 2005) there are 2,041 km of railway lines in public ownership, of which 1,113 are single track and the remaining 928 km either double or quadrupled track.

Here is the Indian Rail map with breakdown of double and single track. Ignoring the colors, the thick lines are double line and thin lines are single track
