Developing larger loading gauges for Europe
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Transport Science, Traffic and Logistics.

Abstract [en]

The needs and opportunities for larger loading gauges in Europe are investigated for railway wagonload as well as intermodal transportation. Dimensional constraints on both railways and highways are investigated, and a set of large railway loading gauges are proposed, which are already implemented on select mainlines in northern Europe. These large gauges are compared with the most prevalent gauges presently in use, and the increased capacity is quantified for general commodities and specific load units. Recommendations are made for existing freight corridors as well as for upgraded and new railway lines.
