Project Arrival is helping reduce rail delays across Europe.
The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland are making use of the new software, with the EU providing funding of £2.2m for the project, which uses algorithms to draw up timetables that make full use of the network’s capacity. Italy, which has seen rail delays reduced by 25% since using the algorithms, is also evaluating the new software to determine if it is suitable for the country’s rail network.
