UIC DRAFTS ITS MASTER PLAN FOR EUROPE

For the first time, the UIC has brought together separate national plans for new and improved lines to carry passengers at 200 to 300 km/h, and a coherent 20,000 km network which could be completed by 1985 has been defined. The author outlines the technical standards which have been put forward for discussion, and explains that the next task will be to examine in detail five key axes along which major improvements in speed and capacity are required.
