It applies to switches and crossings as follows:
¾ in main lines having a radius of curvature in divergent track greater than 150 m and subject to a maximum axle load of 260 kN;
¾ in light rail systems having a radius of curvature in divergent track greater than 80 m and subject to a maximum axle load of 130 kN.
The requirements apply to fastening systems which incorporate a resilient element and are intended for use with stock rail sections in prEN 13674-1. This European Standard is not applicable to rigid fastening systems.
