Abstract

One of the biggest problems for railway operation is the management of train runs during accidents or maintenance sites on double-track-lines. The consequences of these events are barrings and speed restrictions on the main track which cause delays of the trains passing the location. Therefore it is necessary to construct a new timetable based on the existing timetable in consideration of influences of the hindrances on train runs to guarantee safety with high quality. For this purpose the interactive maintenance-site-timetable-construction-system BAUPLAN is used. With a computer-aided construction system it is possible to research several variants of infrastructure (e.g. the usage of additional switches in the site area) and timetable operating strategies in only a part o
