TRAFFIC AND PROFITABILITY FOR A WESTERN EUROPEAN HIGH SPEED TRAIN NETWORK. FINAL REPORT. DECEMBER 1993

Long term passenger traffic forecasts have been carried out for two years, 2000 and 2010, two different scenarios for change in mobility and a variety of states of development of the European high speed train network. Projects for improving existing lines or the connection of new lines are included in the basic variants. Both INRETS and INTRAPLAN models are used to estimate the effect of different high speed network variants. Estimates are given of the traffic and the profitability of 15 key links identified by the EC Commission in the "Outline Plan of European High Speed Train Network (2010)". Traffic flows are classified in terms of the means of transport (car, train and plane) and trip purpose. Trips of more than 80km, within the Community of European Railways countries, are considered, intercontinental air travel or motor coach traffic are not included. Freight transport is assumed to be constant in the evaluation.
