Operational solutions for the transalpine railway freight traffic for sustainable management of connections of the economic areas within the alpine space (AlpFRail)
Start date: Jan 31, 2003, End date: Jul 30, 2007 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The transalpine traffic accessability is essential for Europe. Catastrophes in the Alp tunnels and traffic contrasts show the European dimension of this problems. The raise of road traffic within the alpine region cause an escalation of CO2 emmissions, noise pollution and use of road infrastructure which is not designed for the actual traffic volume. The "alpine" policy of traffic has abandoned the scope of single nationalities and reached European dimensions. The new focus for the solution is "thinking in network and systems, not in axes”. The project will:- create a sustainable mobility concept and masters the transalpine freight traffic by using existing (railway) infrastructure- install a prototype of an information and quality assurance system for a better execution of the transalpine freight traffic on rail taking into account the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) for logistic and transport solution- create an overall supply for the target group and verify the system in 2 pilot cases
