The paper proposes a method for calculating the ballast tamping cycle of railway lines using the mechanistic design procedure. The tamping cycle determined in this way is a function of rail type, tie spacing, pavement materials and traffic. The applicability of the method was evaluated on the coal line between Paulpietersburg and Piet Retief.
