TRACK AND HIGH SPEED ON LINES WITH MIXED TRAFFIC

IL BINARIO E L'ALTA VELOCITA NELLE LINEE A TRAFFICO MISTO

While recognizing the validity of high-speed, specialized service in appropriate cases, it is proposed to introduce mixed operations on new lines as an answer to the requirements which presage an integrated system of transportation providing for a massive shift to the railroad. The new direct line, Rome--Florence, meets these requirements because, in accordance with the European Master Plan, it is the first significant example of a plan designed for operations assuring the greatest capacity and high flexibility. There arise complicated technical problems regarding harmonization between the consequences of a greater aggressiveness of the heavy traffic and the preservation of the levels of quality suitable for super-fast runnings. Some of the most important aspects of this problem are briefly dealt with.
