Indikatorer för ökad punktlighet på järnväg: slutrapport inom projektet Nypunkt


Punctuality is a very important issue for the railway in order to increase passenger and transport buyer satisfaction and be competitive in relation to other modes of transport. To obtain punctuality is however a complex task which includes cooperation between different organisations such as infrastructure managers and train operators. Such a cooperation exists in Sweden and is called TTT (Together for Trains on Time). TTT has divided the work concerning increased railway punctuality in Sweden into eight so called effect areas: Infrastructure, Vehicle, Trespassing, Traffic and resource planning, Traffic management, Trackwork, Departure time and nodes and From abroad. In this report, an analysis of the work in TTT is conducted which identifies synergies in-between the effect areas and reports on current status for the punctuality work in each effect area. Furthermore, twelve main indicators for improved railway punctuality are identified in this report. The purpose of these indicators is to assist TTT in monitoring the punctuality improvement work. The new indicators cover both the most important issues from the effect areas and aspects of special importance to travellers such as very long delays and cancelled trains.

How to make autonomous vehicles coexist with other traffic

The road infrastructure must be prepared for self-driving vehicles – especially in the beginning when the concepts are still new. Researchers are contributing to this through CoEXist, an EU-funded research project in which VTI participates as the largest...


Electric roads: ‘Standardisation is an important factor for a future European transport system’

VTI employees recently arranged a workshop in Brussels on the standardisation of Electric Road Systems (ERS). ERS has become increasingly relevant as a possible method for reducing the transport sector's environmental impacts, especially in terms of climate...

Shift2Rail is a European railway project that works actively to create innovations within the railway sector. IMPACT-2 is a project within Shift2Rail that follows and evaluates the innovation projects. How are the innovations coming along? Are they beneficial...


How vehicles can avoid accidents on newly paved roads

Friction is an important property for road safety. VTI has investigated how roads change in the first few weeks after surfacing work has been completed. Researchers recommend posting warning signs when the road is opened and waiting at least three weeks to...


VTI contributes to study on older drivers and accidents

On behalf of and in collaboration with the Swedish Transport Agency, VTI has carried out a study of older drivers and the link between illness and traffic accidents. The Transport Agency has now published the results.
