Railway tracks heat up

Published : Sunday, 21 April, 2024 at 12:00 AM  Count : 221

Dear Sir

The primary material in railway tracks is steel which absorbs so much heat. So, in summer the tracks heat up gradually. Colour is the biggest fact because dark colour absorbs high heat compared to light colour.

Most tracks of the railway line are dark in colour. Even after sunset it takes a long time to stay quite warm. In this situation the solution can be to restrict the speed of the train. That means reducing the train speed and the white colour should be a must.

Railways have given instructions to reduce the speed and the fear that the railway line may bend which could cause accidents due to excessive heat. People and passengers should be aware. The railway authority should take special steps and raise awareness among people.
