He stated that all railway lines are used when the crossroads and two lines cross each other, the needle rail is used: Currently, about 12,000 rail needles have been installed in the country, which need to be repaired and repaired over time. It is a substitution, of course, this tonnage may not be such a number compared to the tonnage of the produced rail; But as the railway portfolio of steel products was completed, the company began to produce it.
