The Possibility of Utilising Maximum Capacity of the Double-Track Railway By Using Innovative Traffic Organisation

This paper will analyse the existing capacity of the double-track railway line M104 Novska – Vinkovci – Tovarnik – State Border – (Šid), located along the RH1 national corridor in Croatia. Upon the analysis, the paper proposes a new and innovative way or organising railway traffic on the line, which is a reflection of the maximum capacity utilisation regardless of the train transport route. Before using the proposed organisation, the track must be fitted with the modern signal and safety system which ensures traffic along the single track of the double-track railway line in both directions. Furthermore, the paper puts forward the methodology and impact of certain proposed criteria on the new organisation method. A simulation of the proposed organisation, using OpenTrack software, examines the results in terms of justification for using such a concept. The M104 railway serves as a case study for testing the innovation in railway traffic organisation.
