Abstract [en]

Turnouts used at the Swedish rail contribute to about 10 % of the yearly operation and maintenance cost and especially turnout extensively used for deviating track have high maintenance cost and more failures than those used mostly for main track. Therefore it is critical to have more information of how much the deviating track is used in practise. A measurement has been made to establish train speed, train weight, direction through the turnout and which path that has been used on a specific turnout. This type of measurement should be done on turnouts that have more problems to onfirm if the traffic is a major cause or not. There are two major sources for establish the information, one is measuring it at place and the other is to use information gathered by Banverket. The possibility and the cost of this type of investigation are discussed as well as the difference between the planned and actual use of the turnout.
