To introduce new goals and targets.

Operation methods are at the heart of UIC’s vision for all Infrastructure Managers and Railway Undertakings. UIC has a number of operation-related leaflets still in force, which need to be maintained and updated. Leaflets in the process of being converted into International Railway Standards (IRS) are valid globally and not just for Europe

Apart from that, we discussed a specific operational problem which is causing the Railway Undertakings a lot of trouble, i. e. the cross-border planning and coordination of major repair and maintenance works of the various European infrastructure managers, traffic management, capacity calculation and capacity assessment. Railways need to improve capacity on their existing infrastructure. Efforts have been made to reduce the headway between trains by acting on the block system; however this only has impact on a full line. Experience shows that the block system is only one link in the chain of capacity. Hence on some HS lines equipped with an ETCS Level 2 block system, the operational capacity is lowest, while the theoretical capacity should be highest.

Hence, there are possibilities other than block systems which can contribute to operational capacity on a line optimising the traffic in nodes, managing the existing interlocking better, and making better use of their functionalities. There is a way to optimise operating modes, topology and infrastructure performance with regard to the desired quality and performance. Progress in technology, especially in digitalisation, opens new potentials (as well as new risks) which railways need to integrate rapidly.
