SCIENTIFIC ASPECTS OF THE RAILWAY'S PLACE IN THE INTEGRATED FEDERAL TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN

DIE WISSENSCHAFTLICHEN ASPEKTE DER BEDEUTUNG DER EISENBAHN IM INTEGRIERTEN BUNDESVERKEHRSWEGEPLAN

After reviewing the railway's specific characteristics, the author concludes that the top speed of 300 km/h chosen for new high-speed lines is adequate in terms both of the geographical housing pattern and of the traffic requirements of individual countries, even in the longer term. The railway can be highly competitive in the field of passenger traffic, provided train speeds can be substantially increased. The author places special emphasis on the construction of new lines and yards, as envisaged in the context of the first phase of implementation of the federal transport infrastructure plan.
