The European Corridor: Capacity and journey times
2014 (English)Report (Other academic)
New main lines provide capacity for considerably more services and more direct trains (instead of routes where passengers need to change) than today. Pressure is also reduced on the express trains on the Western and Southern main lines, freeing up capacity for more freight trains and regional trains. It is important that the new main lines be planned and dimensioned for the traffic that can be expected in a more long-term perspective. On several routes,the additional capacity will be sufficient without any particular problems provided that traffic has good punctuality and speed differences between trains are relatively small, but capacity utilisation may be high on the East Link and between Gothenburg and Borås. For this reason, a number of changes are proposed in order to improve the traffic system.
