TCR update now available

The overview on major works and temporary capacity restrictions for timetable 2017 and 2018 has been updated and is now available under downloads and in CIP for your information.


Principal route to Port of Vlissingen established

On 28th November 2016 the Executive Board has adopted the decision to connect Vlissingen to Corridor Rhine-Alpine by a principal line as required in Annex II of the Regulation (EU) 1316/2013.  

Therefore former connecting lines to Vlissingen have been changed into principal lines and two new line sections have been added. Capacity on these sections will be published for Timetable 2018 and representatives of Port of Vlissingen will be invited to Terminal Advisory Group in 2017.  

The official document including a map showing the Corridor routing in detail is available in the download area under European Context.


Customer Information Platform (CIP) now provides information on infrastructure project and ETCS deployment

The interactive map is the heart of CIP. Further developments and new functionalities are planned to improve the usefulness for our customers. As an additional feature, the information about “Projects” and “ETCS deployment” is now available. Under both categories several sub-elements are available (e. g. Infrastructure, Signalling or ERTMS projects).

To display “Projects” and ETCS deployment information, please select the desired sub-elements in the respective categories of the menu on the left side of the map. For singular display we recommend to disable the information on “corridor lines” in the category “line properties by choosing "none".

CIP is the only source that delivers this type of standardised information on line properties, Projects and ETCS deployment in the railway sector for several infrastructure managers.

To allow seamless and international tracing of freight train runs along Rail Freight Corridors the German terminal operator DUSS will in future profit from international train data disposed by Train Information System (TIS). The web-based application TIS provided by RailNetEurope (RNE) delivers real-time train data for international and to some degree for national freight trains to railway undertakings and terminal operators.  

The Go-Live of the new changeover point for the electric power supply systems on the border between Emmerich station in Germany and Zevenaar in the Netherlands, significantly simplifies rail freight between the two neighboring countries. From now on international freight trains from and to the Port of Rotterdam have to switch their power supply system only once from 25,000 to 15,000 volt AC.
