image of Trans-European Railway High-Speed Master Plan - Phase 1

Following the development of the Trans-European Railway (TER) Master Plan the TER Steering Committee decided that a similar master plan should be developed to facilitate Member States' investment decisions in relation to high-speed rail services. This publication identifies the main parameters and requirements for the building of a high speed network and suggests those areas of the network that would be best suited for high speed rail operations based on demand projections prepared by the consultant. The main target of the Trans-European Railway (TER) project is to improve the quality and efficiency of transport operations, to assist the integration process of European transport infrastructure systems and to develop a coherent and efficient international railway and combined transport system in accordance with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Pan-European infrastructure agreements.




The Trans-European Railway (TER) High-Speed Master Plan Study was prepared by the consultant Helmut Adelsberger (InfraConceptA) and completed thanks to the work and contributions of National Coordinators and country experts from participating TER member countries, without whose commitment and input this study would not have been possible. The TER Project Manager and Deputy Project Manager; the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe as the executing agency of the project; as well as other experts also provided valuable input into the preparation of the document.
