Research on Model Application to Restructuring the Railway Transport Sector in Lithuania

This article considers the approaches that are being used to integrate the railway transportation sector in Lithuania into the European transportation network. The author notes that there is no data presently available to estimate the costs incurred by the State for the establishment and operation of the railway infrastructure management enterprise. Therefore, the author explores costs and economic data determined from the experiences of other countries who reformed their railway transport sector. The author compares these restructuring models from other European Union (EU) member states, evaluates the selection of models proposed by foreign theoreticians, and then provides the economic rationale for the model chosen for reforming the Lithuanian railway transport sector. The chosen model is an "integrated" model that features coordination of the actions of the main carrier and the road owner for planning train traffic, speed, capacities, safety, and operating activities.
