The high efficiency of high-speed rail transport contributes to its development both in the service sectors and in the construction of devices for servicing high-speed trains, in particular, track development. At the same time, it is necessary to take into account the obvious problems that accompany the process of reconstruction of railways during the transition to high-speed passenger traffic. Among them, the presence of small radii of circular curves, an insufficient length of straight inserts and transition curves should be noted. In this paper, it is proposed to consider small-radius curves located close to each other as one common module when reconstructing railways with the aim of introducing high-speed passenger traffic. The implementation of this approach will allow solving one of the main problems - straightening of the railway section. This will increase the speed of passenger trains and reduce travel time by reducing the length of the route. The article deals with the task of reconstruction of modules consisting of three adjacent curves, which occur when improving the characteristics of the plan of the Kharkiv-Dnipro railway direction.
