New European wish: operating project for European rail network

Objective

The centrality of rail in a pan-European dimension is the ultimate goal of the European Transport Policy encouraging long-term sustainable mobility and promoting a competitive environment. In order to achieve this goal, a modal shift towards rail is necessary while reverting the erosion of rail freight market share.

The New Opera project will contribute to this goal by assessing ways for:
- implementing the ERRAC Strategic Rail Research Agenda 2020 by capturing the threefold increase in freight volumes by 2020
- providing grounds for the establishment of 15.000Km of new and existing lines predominantly dedicated to freight.
- Revitalising the Rail business by applying NEW business models, NEW service culture through use of freight dedicated rail infrastructure
- Envisage transitions from the existing Rail business model based on rail infrastructure dual use to one more capable of capturing market demands and achieve productivity and efficiency gains based on dedicated freight networks.
