General Assembly of the Association KORRIDOR X PLUS

On January 28th 2011, in Vienna, the General Assembly of the Association KORRIDOR X PLUS took place. This association consists of the Railway Organizations of Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Bulgaria and aims to the provision of improved railway services along Pan-European Corridor X. The provision of improved services and the attraction of traffic go through the undertaken task of minimization of times required for border crossings.

The association analyzed the traffic volumes of the past two years and the required times for border controls and the times that can be avoided if some soft-measures were implemented. Such measures could be:

  • optimization of border procedures
  • intensified use of IT-software-solutions
  • technical as well as constructional modernisation
  • provision of locomotives in time
  • signing of trust agreements
  • improved approach when dealing with missing loading tackles
  • trans-national deployment of locomotives
  • customs and border controls during train run

M. Miltiadou from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (SEETAC ERDF PP-9), also member of the Technical Secretariat of the Steering Committee for Pan-European Corridor X, participated in the General Assembly and briefly informed the participants about the content and aim of the SEE Transport Axis Cooperation. Furthermore, he invited the participants to express possible ideas of pilot projects for the improvement of the railway product that could be promoted for implementation in the framework of SEETAC WP5.
