18
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Banverket - Sweden

19
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Banverket is the Swedish national authority
    responsible for railway maintenance and traffic
    control.
  • Its duties include working together with
    operators, users and other  interested parties to
    promote the development of rail traffic.
  • This means that Banverket is responsible for the
    RD required for developing the rail transport
    sector and for keeping the community as a whole
    informed in this area.

20
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Banverkets 2006 2011 RD programme specifies
    four initiatives that should be carried out at
    the outset.

Cooperation with manufacturers of vehicles and
other equipment regarding RD efforts to develop
and maintain competence for construction of rail
materials suitable for Swedish conditions.
Operators, vehicle suppliers and infrastructure
managers need to collaborate with each other and
share their competence when ordering, developing
and manufacturing new vehicles.
21
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  •  High speed train of tomorrow!
  • The Green Train - an RDD program for high-speed
    trains in Sweden
  • The Swedish national rail administration
    Banverket has launched a new vehicle research
    program 'Gröna Tåget'.
  • The aim is to safeguard and further develop the
    competence required for ensuring the operation of
    the future passenger trains which will operate on
    the Swedish railway network. These trains should
    comply with the demands placed on them by the
    special Nordic climatic conditions.

22
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  •  High speed train of tomorrow!
  • It is estimated that a concept for such vehicles
    will reach completion in 2010. Some of the
    partners in the program Bombardier Sweden,
    technical universities, railway industrial
    companies.
  • 250km per hour / using existing tracks

23
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Test train factsAn ordinary Regina train was
    used for testing the Green train. Besides testing
    new technical solutions, and bogies in
    particular, the train is being remodelled for
    better performance in order to run at higher
    speeds with due regard to performance and
    safety.
  • For testing, a modified so-called Regina train is
    used. This is a two-car electrical multiple unit.
    Besides testing new technical solutions, the
    train has higher performance for running at
    increased speeds the current goal is 250 km/h,
    taking account of necessary margins.

24
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • The test train is (or is planned to be) equipped
    with
  • - Traction motors on all 8 axles, with necessary
    converters
  • - Motor reduction gears for higher speeds
  • - Speedometers and pacesetters for speeds up to
    300 km/h
  • - Pantograph tops for higher speeds on existing
    catenaries.

- Adaptation for 16 kV voltages in the mains
supply against the normal 15 kV voltages. -
Track-friendly bogies for improved running
stability as well as low track forces and
wheel-rail wear. - Brake pads for higher
temperatures and speed - Bogie fairings for
reduced external noise and improved aerodynamics.
25
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Technical Aspects of the Green Train
  • Heavy rail investment program ( 11 bn)
  • Capacity enhancements
  • Upgrading of existing lines
  • High-speed links freight corridors.
  • Still, on most lines high-speed trains will share
    tracks with heavy freight trains (axle load to up
    to 25 metric tonnes).
  • A new generation of long-distance trains is
    foreseen to be needed and introduced within in
    the next 5 10 years.
  • Other Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Norway)
    have similar needs, possibly later.

26
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Technical Aspects of the Green Train
  • Desired features for Swedish (Nordic) conditions
  • Short travelling time (on upgraded and new
    infrastructure) top speed 250 km/h or higher.
    Tilting car body is needed.
  • Improved passenger comfort (seating and working
    ability, noise ride, pressure tightness,
    reduced motion sickness).
  • Space-efficient, flexible and attractive
    interiors.

27
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Technical Aspects of the Green Train

28
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Further Technical Aspects of the Green Train
    2006 2008
  • Noise reduction (external internal)
  • Current collection (improved pantographs on
    existing overhead catenaries)
  • Aerodynamics
  • Winter climate protection at high-speed operation.

29
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Technical Aspects of the Green Train
  • Improved environmental performance (energy,
    noise) Energy consumption (per seat-km) should
    be reduced.
  • No higher noise level at higher speeds (cf. 200
    km/h).
  • Opportunity (according to proposed EN)
  • The Swedish (and Nordic) rail network allows
    wider trains than continental Europe

35
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Jernbaneverket (JBV)- Norway

36
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Jernbaneverket is the Norwegian national railway
    authority and is responsible for the management
    of the national railway network, on behalf of the
    Ministry of Transport and Communication.
  • Through public funding and with a socio-economic
    perspective, its objective is to operate,
    maintain and develop the national railway
    network.

37
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Jernbaneverket is responsible for
  • Developing and operating a rail network that
    meets the requirements of society and the market
  • Railway stations and terminals
  • Timetabling
  • Traffic management
  • Regulation of the public rail network
  • Studies and planning in the rail sector

38
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • High-speed lines in Norway a feasibility study
  • The VWI - group, Verkehrswissenschaftliches
    Institut Stuttgart GmbH, has done a Feasibility
    Study Concerning High-Speed Railway Lines in
    Norway. In phase one of the study the Consultant
    Group suggested to concentrate the study on the
    two lines
  • Oslo Trondheim 464km
  • Oslo Gøteborg 313km
  • The two corridors have been chosen as reference
    corridors as it was anticipated that they will
    have the best benefit-cost-ratio due to relative
    low investment costs compared to the other
    corridors and demand potentials ranged on a quite
    similar level.

39
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • High-speed lines in Norway a feasibility study
  • Study parameters
  • Concentrating on the main markets between the
    major points of demand and only a few
    intermediate stops in greater communities with
    adequate traffic demand
  • Offers strictly oriented on demand
  • Cost efficient planning of infrastructure with
    single track lines wherever sufficient
  • Additional regional services as feeder systems
    for the High-Speed-Services

40
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • High-speed lines in Norway a feasibility study
  • Results
  • The corridor Oslo Gøteborg shows a slightly
    better result than the corridor Oslo Trondheim
    (BCR 1.85 gt 1.81). Macroeconomic
    cost-benefit-analysis on the basis of the
    evaluation procedure shows a positive result for
    both corridors and indicates both lines as
    economically useful and being worth to realise.

41
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • High-speed lines in Norway a feasibility study
  • High-speed traffic
  • improves the accessibility between the major
    cities in Norway and between the regions.
    High-Speed-Traffic reduces domestic air traffic
    significantly and will solve capacity problems of
    airports in the future.
  • reduces travel times, greenhouse gases and
    exhaust emissions as well as they increase
    traffic safety and give contributions to
    environmental benefits.
  • Jernbaneverket will now examine the conclusions
    of the study and make suggestions as to what
    further steps should be taken for the Ministry of
    Transport and Communication.

42
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Network Rail United Kingdom

43
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • The size and scale of the engineering projects is
    enormous. In 2006 alone,  3 billion was spent on
    engineering projects.
  • All projects are focused on a single aim to
    make Britains railways better. Some do this by
    reducing journey times between major cities,
    others open up new routes for passengers/freight/t
    ourists/rural areas and others aim to make the
    railway safer.
  • Network Rail owns and operates Britains rail
    infrastructure.
  • Network Rail aims to provide Britain with a safe,
    reliable and efficient railway fit for the 21st
    century.
  • The investment programme is transforming
    Britains railway.

44
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • High Speed 1 (HS1), known as the Channel Tunnel
    Rail Link (CTRL) during construction, is a 108 km
    (67 mile) high speed railway line running from
    London through Kent to the British end of the
    Channel Tunnel.
  • The second and final section of the line,
    travelling across the River Thames and into
    London St Pancras, opened on 14 November 2007.

45
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Built at a cost of 5.2bn, the new link has cut
    pre-2003 Eurostar journey times by 40 minutes. It
    is now possible to travel from London St Pancras
    to Paris Gare du Nord in 2 hours 15 minutes and
    to Brussels South in 1 hour 51 minutes.
  • On 14 November 2006, London and Continental
    Railways adopted the brand name High Speed 1 for
    the completed railway. Official legislation,
    documentation and line-side signage has continued
    to refer to "CTRL".

46
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
Legend
  • Section 1 of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, opened
    in 2003 and is a 74 km section of high-speed
    track from the Channel Tunnel to Fawkham
    Junction in north Kent.
  • The section's completion cut the LondonParis
    journey time by around 21 minutes, to 2h 35mn.
    The line includes the Medway Viaduct, a 1.2 km
    (¾ mile) bridge and the North Downs Tunnel, a
    3.2 km long, 12 m (40 ft) diameter tunnel.

47
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
Legend
  • Section 1 of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link
  • In safety testing on the section prior to
    opening, a new UK rail speed record of 334.7 km/h
    (208.0 mph) was set.
  • Much of the new high-speed line runs alongside
    the M2 M20 motorways through Kent. After
    completion, Eurostar trains continued to use
    suburban lines to enter London, arriving at
    Waterloo International.

48
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Section 2 of the project opened on in 2007 and is
    a 39.4 km (24 mile) stretch of track from the
    newly built Ebbsfleet station in Kent to London
    St Pancras.
  • The route starts with a 2.5 km (1.5 mile) tunnel
    which dives under the Thames, then runs alongside
    the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway as far
    as Dagenham, where it enters a 19 km (12 mile)
    tunnel before emerging over the East Coast Main
    Line near St Pancras.

49
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • The tunnel is interrupted by the new Stratford
    Int. Railway station where a 1 km stretch runs
    close to the surface, dividing the tunnel into
    London East and London West sections.
  • Stratford International will serve the main site
    for the 2012 Summer Olympic.

50
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Facts and figures
  • One train approximately every 15 seconds will
    serve the Park carrying 240,000 people per hour
    by rail.
  • Central London to Olympic Park will take just 7
    minutes. Travelling to the Games daily will be
    50,000 athletes, officials, media and other
    staff 140,000 staff and volunteers and 500,000
    spectators.
  • The Javelin service will deliver up to 25,000
    people per hour to the Olympic Park.

51
European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM)
  • Three stations Stratford Regional, Stratford
    International and West Ham will act as key
    'gateways' to the Olympic Park. A total of 12
    lines will serve these stations, including the
    Javelin rail shuttle from St Pancras
    International to Stratford International.
  • The shuttle will take up to 25,000 people per
    hour from central London to the Olympic Park in
    just seven minutes.
  • During the Games up to 120,000 passengers, of
    which about 60,000 will be spectators, will
    arrive and depart through the improved Stratford
    Regional Station.
