HSL-SOUTH AND NETWORK INTERDEPENDENCE: CONTRACTING OUT WHILE RETAINING NETWORK OPTIMIZATION

HSL ZUID EN NETWERKSAMENHANG: AANBESTEDEN MET BEHOUD VAN NETWERKOPTIMALISATIE

This article deals with transportation networks, (rail) traffic networks and (rail) infrastructure networks. It analyses the interdependence between networks within (horizontal) layers.

To illustrate this point, several models are analysed in the light of the new high-speed line. Where use of the infrastructure is concerned, network benefits need to be examined strategically, from the point of view of the railway network. (A)
