Daily Times, United Arab Emirates: - After the spread of images on social media, showing wooden connections in the railway tracks, which caused the Toukh train overturn, the Egyptian Ministry of Transport responded to this news.

The Egyptian Ministry of Transport said that "what appears in the pictures are wooden insulators that are installed on the rails for which signaling systems are being developed, to operate electrically to isolate the electrical supply between the different railway sectors."

The ministry stated that "all railway rails in the main lines are welded along the track and fixed to the flanges by means of standard fixing tasks."

The ministry added, "The rods are installed in this region and are fixed with flanges with the same tasks as fixing the rods along the track. They are used in all countries of the world, and Egypt entered with the beginning of the eighties, since the implementation of signal electrification work."

And the ministry continued, "It operates under operating conditions at the speeds set for the lines. These insulating bolts bear an axial load of up to 27 tons, while the axial load of the railway network lines is currently 24 tons."

The ministry also indicated that it "can withstand speeds of up to 160 km per hour, which means that it differs in its mission from the iron bolts used with seamless lines."

The Egyptian Ministry of Transport called on citizens and all media to "investigate the accuracy of news related to the ministry's sectors, and to obtain the correct information from official sources."
