1 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Transrapid in the context of urban and regional transport planning Long-Wave-Theories and Infrastructures Actual Developments on globalized markets Settlement Structures in Europe Vision of a maglev network for Germany Why maglev?

2 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Long-Wave-Theories and Infrastructures Growth Wave I 1805 Steam/Mechanics Trade Wave II 1865 Coal/Steal Traffic Wave III 1920 Electricity/Chemistry Energy Wave IV 1970 Oil/Electronics Communication Wave V 2020 Nuclear Power/IT Knowledge Canals 1836 Rails 1891 Roads 1946 Air 2002 Maglev? years years years years Linking specific cities Linking regions (national) Covering Areas (decentralization) Linking Metropoles (international)

3 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Long-Wave-Theories and Infrastructures Conclusion There are regular cycles of economic growth. There are regular cycles in the development of infrastructures. There is a correlation between infrastructure and economic development. Each transportation system answers a specific economic requirement and itself has an impact on economic development and settlement structure.

4 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Actual Developments on globalized markets Increasing spezialisation and complexity of organisation in networks or project companies. Shift from mass production (Fordistic) to flexible, individualized production (Post-Fordistic). Demographic changes and increasing importance of innovative clusters and regions. Spatial and interactional expansion of economic areas and concentration on metropolitan areas due to Globalization. Temporal distance, not spatial, is the determining factor.

5 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Settlement Structures in Europe England GermanyFrance

6 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Vision of a maglev network for Germany km (2,644 miles) 50 DB stations 10 P&R stations 14 airport stations av. 34% time saving to actual systems (~ 1h) connects smaller regions to metropolitan areas Hamburg Berlin Dresden Leipzig Magdeburg Hannover Bremen Dortmund Kassel Cologne Francfort Nuremberg Munich Stuttgart support of decentralized concentration

7 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Why maglev? 70th: new systems needed to reach HighSpeed 90th: railways with 300 – 350 km/h (180 – 215 mph) Airtravel is adequate system to link metropolitan regions in globalized markets. Maglev is to bring short international trip times by airtravel into the regions. Maglev strengthens smaller regions and links them to international markets.

8 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Maglev is the future of modern high-speed transportation. Which region will give the major impulse for the implementation of this innovative transportation system? Europe? Asia? America?

9 Maglev‘2006, Dresden, September Why Maglev? Dr. rer. pol Michael Raschbichler Requirements for future transportation infrastructures Available and flexible Short trip times despite intermediate stops Safe and reliable Low costs Ecologically consistent Fit to regional settlement structure. Interconnect flexible and innovative clusters and regions in a network.
