Temporary Capacity Restrictions

Temporary Capacity Restrictions (TCRs)

In order to provide high quality path offers, it is essential that Temporary Capacity Restrictions (TCRs) be well planned and coordinated. RNE has set up a Working Group with the goal to improve the coordination and information processes regarding TCRs.

The Temporary Capacity Restrictions Working Group (TCR WG) was set up and held its first regular meeting on 12 September 2017 in Vienna.

The working group consists of business experts from all Infrastructure Managers/Allocation Bodies and is supported by Railway Undertakings.

In its role as decision-making group and Change Control Board (CCB) for the web-based TCR-tool, an application which is currently being developed and planned to be rolled out in January 2018 as a first prototype, it will hold at least two meetings per year. These meetings will function as an information platform and TCR WG members are regularly invited to participate in several taskforces and projects for further elaborations and developments of subprojects. The Working Group’s strategic decisions are based on the Rail Freight Corridor Guidelines for Temporary Capacity Restrictions and the legal framework set up by the European Commission.

Further Information about the TCR tool will be published on this page as soon as it is available.
