Heavy Haul Corridor Selection and Service Design Models

  title={Heavy Haul Corridor Selection and Service Design Models},
  author={Bodhibrata Nag},
Heavy haul corridors are capital intensive and are relatively expensive to maintain. It is therefore imperative that heavy haul corridors are chosen with care, such that sufficient traffic is available on the corridors to ensure adequate returns. The strategic choice will be dictated by projected pattern and volume of freight traffic, projected pattern of passenger traffic and terminal facilities. Various choices may be obtained with different rolling stock and locomotive capacity to obtain… CONTINUE READING
