Forsgren, Malin and Aronsson, Martin and Gestrelius, Sara and Dahlberg, Hans (2012) Opportunities and challenges with new railway planning approach in Sweden. [SICS Report]
Long lead times in railway planning can give rise to a significant discrepancy between the original plan and the traffic eventually operated, resulting in inefficient utilization of capacity. Research shows that the railway sector in Sweden would benefit from a different planning approach in which capacity consuming decisions are pushed forward in time whenever possible. This approach is currently being implemented at Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration. With it follows a number of mathematical opportunities and challenges, some of which will be presented in this paper.
