The permanent way being laid for the urban rail project "Metropolitana Bari Centrale - Quartiere San Paolo" in Bari, Italy, is of the Margaritelli slab track type, whereby prefabricated unstressed reinforced concrete slabs are laid unconnected on elastic matting over a cement layer. To analyse the performance capability of this permanent way type, extended-time threshold testing was carried out in the laboratory. The article describes the tests carried out and the results obtained.
