DESIGN OF TIMETABLES THAT MINIMIZE DELAYS
DURING INFRASTRUCTURE UNAVAILABILITIES

DEFINITION OF TEMPORARY TIMETABLES

Infrastructure improvement works or major disruptions can limit the availability of railway lines and station for long periods. If the regular timetable would be operated in such conditions, it would lead to major delays. At the same time, any reduction in the number of services provided cause a loss in the attractiveness of railway to the other transport means.

At LIFT, the maximization of the services maintaing high punctuality levels is a constant focus. A long experience in a variety of contexts drive the development of innovative, quantitative approaches that support delivering the most effective temporary timetables.

The use of advanced simulation techniques allows comparing different alternatives and defining possible timetable changes or request slight variations the restrictions due to works in order to maximize punctuality.
