Construction. The appropriate thickness of a layer of track ballast depends on the size and spacing of the ties, the amount of traffic on the line, and various other factors. Track ballast should never be laid down less than 150 mm (6 inches) thick, and high-speed railway lines may require ballast up to 0.5 metres (20 inches) thick. An insufficient depth of ballast causes overloading of the

Railway track settlements - a literature review
Railway tracks (rails and sleepers) are normally laid on a sub-structure that consists of two or more layers of different materials. The top layer (below the sleepers) is a layer of railway ballast. Below the ballast there might be layers of sub-ballast, a formation layer and/or the subground (the formation). Historically, the ballast layer

8.1 Introduction to Railway Structures
The depth of ballast contributes to the satisfactory functioning of ballasted decks on railway bridges. It is generally agreed that 6 inches to 12 inches of ballast under the ties is adequate and that more than 12 inches is undesirable because of the potential of overload involved, except when provision is made in the design for a greater load.
