Research into optimized and future railway infrastructure

This call consists of research work aiming at enhancing, optimising and developing switches & crossings and track systems including drainage management, in order to ensure optimal line usage and capacity. The proposal should address further improve, develop and implement the whole system modelling approaches for track & S&C, to gain an understanding of how alternative asset designs, materials, etc. affect the overall performance of the railway system. The action will result in the start of Common Safety Method Risk Assessment activities to support deployment of the demonstrators, and production of performance indicators to assess demonstrator performance.
