Background Research on High Speed Rail Kumar and Wencan
Paris-Lyon Trip diversion -Most of the diverted passengers come from air. Trip generation Wider impact on the region beyond Lyon -Use the same train for uninterrupted journeys over the existing network Financed entirely by SNCF (French -National Railway Company )
Tokyo-Osaka Large metropolitan centers A few hundred kilometers apart -560 km, with Nagoya located on the route 342 km from Tokyo A high demand for travel between them -132 million passengers in 2002 Engineering complexity and high land values in city centers
ICE, Germany The urban structure lacks monocentric focus A mixed-use line -high construction costs: to support the higher load of freight trains -low utilization of the lines: freight trains operate at much lower speeds
Notes to Albacete Build strong economic linkage between centers. A positive development requires careful planning and policy intervention, especially in investment. Serve a wide area: regional development. Airport style nodes: major business centers. Good connecting services by all modes. Affordability; social equity. Financing.
