English term or phrase:overthrow
OVERTHROW is a widening or vertical expansion of the space required by a vehicle for it to pass through the gauge line on horizontally and/or vertically curved track.
When applied using an approved methodology, and with the inclusion of clearances and tolerances defined by the standard, this profile defines the maximum available envelope on straight and level track. Additional space could be available locally to accommodate OVERTHROW and dynamic movement related to curvature. As network improvements are implemented, more space than that shown above could become available.
