RE: pouring concrete near railway

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I would check with your local building department for their requirement. Or if you have a civil/transportation friend in the area they may also be able to tell you what the minimum distance is required to be. The minimum distance might be measured to the center of the road servicing the building. I think this was the way the placement of the parking deck I did was derived (50ft from center of servicing road to railway). Anway, I think they can shut the building down if it does not meet your local setback requirements.

Dear all,
I have a structure concrete project that stand near a railway.
What is the implication of the vibrating effect of the railway to the concrete bonding on reinforcement, while concrete start to hardening?
How far should the building placed to the railway?
Many thanks in advance.
Best regards
