When connecting roads are maintained by siding owners, frequent inspections are carried out and charges are collected. Within the meaning of the management board`s letter No. 83/W1/SP/12 dt. 22.3.93 (Annex. L) it has been decided that the rate to be levied for inspection taxes should not be lower than the 2000 / – per ETKM per year and the minimum inspection fees for each siding R. 5000 / – per year, and the taxes are reusable after 3 years and are redefined on the basis of the consumer price index. In railway terminology, a siding is a section of low-speed track, different from a running line or a passing track such as a main line, secondary train or section of track. It can be connected at both ends by passageways or other connecting routes. Sidings often have lighter rails, designed for lower speeds or traffic, and few signals, if any. Connecting tracks connected to both ends of a running line are usually called loops.   People who are not connected in this way can be described as unilateral or dead ends or (if brief) stubs.  Private connecting track describes a connecting track that is not part of a railway, but connects to a factory, etc.
 In Australia, private connecting tracks must be registered with the safety authority.  Are you building, expanding or modifying your connection to the railway? We can help. The policy of conversion of the private siding is governed by letter No. 94 / CE-1 / SP / 1 dt of the Board of Directors. 26.4.94 (Annex. N). Empty this letter. It was decided that the conversion of the private connecting road will be to an assisted garage lane. Before the construction of a siding is authorized by the competent authority, the necessary siding agreements that satisfy the provisions of paras. 1824 to 1834-E must be executed within the meaning of para. 1823-E. Common connecting tracks store stationary rolling stock, especially for loading and unloading.
Industrial connecting tracks (also known as spores) go to factories, mines, quarries, wharves, warehouses, some of which are essentially related to industrial railways. These connecting tracks can sometimes be found in stations for public use [clarification needed]; in American parlable language, these are called team railroads (after the use of horse teams to pull wagons to and from them). Connecting tracks may also include maintenance of track equipment or other equipment, so trains can pass, or store auxiliary engines between runs. A particular form of garage track is the passing lane (United States and international) or the passing loop (Great Britain). It is a section parallel to a passageway, connected at both ends by switches (U.S.) (Points in international usage). Passing lanes allow trains travelling in opposite directions to pass and, for high-priority fast trains, to run in the same direction, slower or lower priority. They are important for efficiency on single-track lines and increase the capacity of other lines. Single-Ended (or dead end) garage lane with a similar purpose to passing loop.
The necessary guidelines for the construction, work and maintenance of private connecting roads were adopted in accordance with the letter of the Board of Directors No. 85 / W1 / SP / 45 dt. 1.12.86 with relevant parts of the other letters of the Board of Directors No. .
