The gap left on both sides of the railway and above the railway so that the towing and towed vehicles can pass freely is called the gauge. These are the measurements created to determine the largest possible structure frame of both towed and towed vehicles, as well as the positions of obstacles and especially art structures (such as bridges, culverts, cuts, slopes, orthography) relative to the road. and vertically, the measurement is taken by considering the extreme points.
The measurements taken are measured with a fixed gauge facility on which tunnel and bridge gauge gauges are found. If the horizontal and vertical points of the towing and towed vehicle and the goods in the towed vehicle exceed the dimensions of the gauges, it means there is a gauge overflow.
Load Gauge and Size
The load gauge is the highest dimensions according to the base of the freight wagons and the width and height that can be accepted according to this base for the safe movement of the load to be carried on the lines. Load Gauge is 3150 - 4650 mm.
Construction Gauge and Size
Building design; The dimensions of the structures on the bridge, tunnel and line.
- Construction Gauge 4000 - 4800 mm
- High Peron 1220 mm
- Center Perforation 760 mm
- Low Peron 380 mm
