RailNetEurope discuss simplifying and harmonising international rail transport for the benefit of the entire rail industry across Europe. We all know that the rail market share of the international transport market in Europe is low, when IT is not declining. This is particularly true in period of financial crisis and economic uncertainty, which makes IT all the more urgent to revitalise the Railways of Europe. Efforts to promote international rail transport have, however, not wait for the current crisis. Since 1991, European Commission has issued a number of directives and regulations as part of three railway packages and the TEN-T initiative. All of these aim, directly or indirectly, to create an integrated European Railway area. Companies managing railway infrastructures both in European Member-States and non-EU countries-in particular Norway and Switzerland-have not remain inactive either. A few years back, number of rail Infrastructure Managers and Allocation Bodies wished to establish a common, Europe-wide organisation and get together to this end. Improving quality IT is against this background that RailNetEurope was created in January 2004. As a non-profit making association of IMs / ABs, its aims are to provide support to Railway Undertakings in their International activities and increase the efficiency of IMs processes. Together, members of RailNetEurope are simplifying and harmonising international rail transport for the benefit of the entire rail industry across Europe. Currently, RailNetEurope is a partnership of 35 IMs / ABs, whose rail networks add up to around 230 000 km. The RNEs mission is to create conditions necessary for major improvement in the quality and efficiency of international rail transport in Europe, and for easier access to the European rail Network. Within the framework of ongoing liberalisation of the rail sector and gradual establishment of the Common framework for rail Interoperability, main tasks of RNE are to: coordinate harmonisation, simplification and development of International rail Infrastructure products, services, tools and processes improve the quality and transparency of these products, services, tools and processes promote Legal, Technical and commercial Information about International products and services provide by IMs / ABs. These tasks are carried out by five standing working groups and by ad-hoc project groups coordinated by RNE Joint Office, which is based in Vienna, Austria. An integrated European Railway area means a single railway system where national borders no longer constitute complication, ie where services can operate smoothly across the whole of Europe. This requires a high degree of interoperability between national rail networks, much higher than has ever existed in European space. When talking about Interoperability, most people will think about technical standards: type of power supply, which vary from country to country, safety systems, etc. But interoperability is much wider than this, also covering Europe-wide timetable planning, digital Information exchange in real Time across borders, administrative procedures linked to International Path Applications, and after-Sales services, to name but a few. It is precisely these aspects of Interoperability that RailNetEurope deals with in its daily work.

Tasks

Some time ago, RailNetEurope and Forum Train Europe joined forces to start an ambitious project-Redesign of International Timetabling Process. But what is TTR? Simply put, TTR is a project to simplify, unify, and solidify improvements to the European Rail Timetabling system to significantly increase the competitiveness of railways. Systematic Redesign of Timetabling processes is needed as they differ considerably across European countries, which makes international cooperation difficult. Cross-border traffic is as important as ever for the rail sector, but the current system is leading to unnecessary delays due to poorly coordinated construction works and timetable clashes. In addition, capacity products currently provided by infrastructure managers do not serve all market need. To remedy this unsatisfactory situation, both RailNetEurope and Forum Train Europe agree that changes to these procedures are needed and launch TTR project. They are being supported by the European Rail Freight Association. Base on this feedback, IMs / ABs and RUs then start to define possible approaches for new Process. After several years of planning, innovative and market-orient Redesign Timetabling Process finally took shape. TTR Vision Implementation of TTR Process started after its approval by RNE and FTE in 2017, with clear Vision: clear focus on freight and passenger market need with Optimised request deadlines improve reliability, consistency and stability planning and execution of temporary capacity restrictions binding Implementation and application of redesigned Timetabling Process increase efficiency in order to avoid duplication of work and planning efforts optimise use of existing infrastructure capacity TTR Benefits demonstrate business case base on TTR project results demonstrate that most positive effect on European railway sector is to be expect, namely: Optimised usage of available infrastructure and consequently higher market share of railway transport in modal split increase efficiency of IMs / ABs and applicants when planning and allocating capacity while minimising occurrence of redundant work steps these improvements will translate into considerable financial Benefits for sector.
