From that 'thing' the trackers can make sure the track has a consistend width (the room between the rails should be constant)

OMG! A TALKING MUFFIN!

I'm sorry I didn't understand... I'm very interested by DATman's question!

I thought it looks like an anti roll back but it's strange to put that for all the ride!!

It's not an anti-rollback.
They make a very large strip of all those little pieces and put them on the middle of the ties. Then that's done, the workers that put the actual track in place, make sure the distance between the two tracks are equal. They do this by putting each track at the same distance from what you thought was an anti-rollback.

If you look at other GCI's construction, you'll notice the same thing during a certain phase, but when the coaster is completed, it's gone

Looks like the ride will be delayed by a week (june 30). This to make sure the ride works perfectely without breakdowns.
