Transition zones are locations of discontinuity in the support,
such as stiffness transition zones in the ballasted track (close
to bridges, culverts and tunnels). These zones necessitate
special attention, mainly because they:
- Require frequent and expensive maintenance activities.
- Cause delays due to unexpected maintenance.
