CBSE Class 9 Answered

why are wooden slippers kept below the railway line?

Expert Answer

The railway tracks are laid on large sized wooden sleepers so that the thrust due to the weight of the train is spread over a large area .This reduces the pressure on the ground which would prevent the yielding of ground.
