Spanish term or phrase: vías conjuntas
Hi all,

This is from Spanish Spanish for UK English.

Specs for the constructions of tracks, specifically from a section discussing fastening the rails to the sleepers.
I'm not even sure if it is a typo and should read "vías con juntas" (there are one or two other typos in the 3 page document, so it's not perfect)... any help appreciated.

El asiento del carril sobre las traviesas y la fijación se hará con temperaturas comprendidas entre los 5ºC y tN -10ºC. Para las *******vías conjuntas*********, esta temperatura estará comprendida entre los 5° y 40° respetando las escalas necesarias, en función de las longitudes de las barras elementales utilizadas.

agree  Robin Levey: Yes. And it's consistent with the mention of different temperature ranges for continuous-welded vs. 'fish-plated' rails.

It could also mean "double-track railroad"
