1. INTRODUCTION
The European Economic Interest Grouping «Corridor Rail Freight n. 4» or «EEIG CFM4», was
established on 25 March 2013 composed by the infrastructure managers REFER, ADIF, RFF, in
order to improve the competitiveness of the European rail freight, to increase the modal part of the
international rail freight of goods according to a sustainable development rationale.
Since transparency and non-discrimination are essential to attain the objective of developing
international rail transport, the EEIG CFM4 has established this Corridor Information Document,
which describes the principles of and procedures for use of rail infrastructure, of Corridor n°4, as
required by the Regulation (EU) No. 913/2010 of 22 September 2010.
According to the Article 18 of the Regulation 913/2010, the Corridor Information Document (CID)
contains:
- all informations in relation with the freight corridor contained in the national network
statement,
- information on terminals,
- information on capacity allocation (One Stop Shop) and traffic management, also in the
event of disturbancies,
- the implementation plan that contains:
the characteristics of the freight corridor
the essential elements of the transport market study that should be carried out on a
regular basis
the objectives for the freight corridor
the investment plan described in the regulation
the measures to implement the provisions for coordination of work, capacity allocation
(One Stop Shop), traffic management etc.
2. STRUCTURE OF THE CORRIDOR INFORMATION DOCUMENT
The Corridor Information Document contains the information needed by railway undertakings
wishing to use the corridor rail network to provide passenger and freight transport services and more
generally, by all parties with an interest in international rail transport.
The main structure for the CID for the working timetabling year 2015 is:
Part 1 – Generalities
Part 2 – Network Statement Excerpts Timetabling year 2015
Part 3 – Terminal Description
Part 4 – Capacity and Traffic Management
Part 5 – Implementation Plan
The common structure and amendments are published on the website (www.corridor4.eu).

9. SUPPORT
9.1 Publishing
The Corridor Information Document is drawn up and published by EEIG CFM4, in French, Spanish,
Portuguese and English, on the Corridor 4 website (www.corridor4.eu). In the event of discrepancies
or difficulties in the interpretation of the different versions, the French version will hold sway.
9.2. Other services
Rail Net Europe (RNE) provides to the EEIG CFM4, railway undertakings and authorized applicants,
various tools to facilitate the scheduling of international train paths:
Path Coordination System (PCS)
PCS is a web application for use by railway undertakings and infrastructure managers, via which
international train path requests can be made.
The tools simplify the interfaces and coordination for international train path construction and
integrate the preparatory processes for the timetable for the coming year.
EEIG CFM4 adopts PCS as preferable communication platform between applicants and corridor
OSS. From 2015 onwards PCS will be the exclusive way for applicants submit their requests for
capacity.
Charging Information System (CIS)
CIS is an online tool which allows the rapid estimation of infrastructure charges for international train
paths. It combines the various national rail charging systems to calculate the price for the use of
international train paths.
The uploading and updating of information in CIS is the exclusive responsibility of the Infrastructure
Managers involved in Corridor 4.
Train Information System (TIS)
TIS is a tool which allows international passenger and freight trains to be visualised in real time. At
the moment it is being developed on the main trans-European railway corridors. The information
currently available includes: current and past train locations, agreed timetables and reason for delay,
if necessary.
TIS is in use in the French rail network. Spanish and Portuguese IM (ADIF and REFER) provides
information in real time through national alternative tools. Granting access to real time information
systems is the exclusive responsibility of the IM involved in Corridor 4.
These various tools are described on the RNE website (www.rne.eu).

Allocation of capacity by an Infrastructure Manager or Allocation Body outside the
time scale it normally uses.
An Applicant's request for an individual train path (available as spare capacity)
outside the time scale that the Allocation Body normally uses.
Means the allocation of railway infrastructure capacity by an Infrastructure Manager
or Allocation Body. When the Corridor OSS takes the allocation decision as specified
in Art. 13(3) of Regulation (EU) 913/2010, the allocation itself is done by the Corridor
OSS on behalf of the concerned IMs, which conclude individual national contracts for
the use of infrastructure based on national network access conditions
Definition in Directive 2012/34/EU: a licensed Railway Undertaking and/or an
International Grouping of Railway Undertakings, and, in Member States which
provide for such a possibility, other persons and/or legal entities with public service or
commercial interest in procuring infrastructure capacity, such as public authorities
under Regulation (EU) 1191/69 and shippers, freight forwarders and combined
transport operators, for the operation of railway service on their respective territories.
An Allocation Body is an independent organisation responsible for train path
allocation to Railway Undertakings; this includes the designation of individual paths
and the assessment of their availability. In most cases, the AB is the same
organisation as the Infrastructure Manager. But if the rail operator is not independent
from the Infrastructure Manager, then path allocation must be carried out, according
to the relevant guidelines of the first EU Railway Package, by an independent
Allocation Body.
The process by which capacity is granted to an Applicant by the Infrastructure
Manager or relevant capacity Allocation Body; this capacity is available for the
duration of the working timetable period only.
A different route which may be taken to reach the same destination.
Applicants other than railway undertakings or the international groupings that they
make up, such as shippers, freight forwarders and combined transport operators, that
may request international pre-arranged train paths and reserve capacity. In order to
use such a train path for freight transport on the freight corridor these applicants shall
appoint a railway undertaking to conclude an agreement with the infrastructure
manager in accordance with Article 10(5) of Directive 91/440 (EU)
The location at which an international border is formally crossed. For the UK, this will
involve customs and nationalisation personnel.
The totality of potential train paths that can be accommodated on a railway line or a
network.
The process by which capacity is granted to a Railway Undertaking or to any other
Applicant by the relevant capacity Allocation Body; this capacity will later be used as
actual train paths.
A document listing international train paths that have been pre-constructed and
harmonised by the IM and/or Corridors.
Catalogue Paths are concrete, published path offers to the customers, both for
external (RU/applicant) and internal (IM/AB) use. They are pre-constructed paths
offered either on whole corridors or corridor sections, or on lines not covered by a
corridor but involving a border point. Catalogue paths may be used for the annual
timetable as well as for late request, ad-hoc requests and instant capacity. They have
a significant advantage compared to non-catalogue paths: immediate availability of
the path characteristics. This is made possible by advance coordinated scheduling by
the countries involved. Pre-arranged Paths (see definition) are a form of Catalogue
Paths.
General definition: the use of road and rail or water for the movement of goods in a
single journey.
Confidentiality has been defined by the International Organization for Standardization
(ISO) in ISO-17799 as 'ensuring that information is accessible only to those
authorized to have access' and is one of the cornerstones of information security.

The situation where several applicants are applying for the same/adjacent path
sections in more or less the same time period.
Section of infrastructure for which the demand for capacity cannot be fully satisfied
during certain periods, even after coordination of all the requests for capacity.
A point in the network where two or more corridors share the same infrastructure and
it is possible to shift the services applied for from one corridor to the other.
Person who ensures the overall coordination of Performance Managers along a
corridor and acting as a consultation partner for the Corridor in the questions of
performance analyses (cfr Train Performance Management).
The Corridor One-Stop Shop. A joint body designated or set up by the RFC
organisations for Applicants to request and to receive answers, in a single place and
in a single operation, regarding infrastructure capacity for freight trains crossing at
least one border along the freight Corridor (Regulation (EU) 913/2010, Art. 13).
Under Regulation (EU) 913/2010: a document drawn up, regularly updated and
published by the Corridor Management Board. This document comprises all the
information contained in the network statement of national networks regarding the
freight corridor in accordance with Article 3 of Directive 2012/34/EC; the list and
characteristics of terminals, in particular information concerning the conditions and
methods of accessing the terminals; information concerning the procedures of
application for capacity, capacity allocation to freight trains, traffic management
coordination, and traffic management in the event of disturbance.
Time during which some action is awaited but does not take place. Train delays:
mostly used when a train circulates or/and arrives later than planned in the timetable.
A 'primary delay' is a delay that directly affects the train; a 'secondary delay' (or
knock-on delay or cascading delay) is a delay caused by a primary delayed train. The
definitions of delay thresholds (as well as the measurement of delay) vary widely
around the world (for example, in Japan only trains with less than a minute’s delay
are defined as 'on time'). In 2008, the UIC recommended to set the threshold value at
5 minutes.
When some disorder on the rail network leads to disruption of the services provided
by IMs to RUs, and consequently to train services provided by RUs to their
customers.
European Performance Regime is a joint project by RNE and UIC that was achieved
in 2012. For the purposes of EPR a specific tool was developed that enable to do
quality checks on TIS data.
Regulation (EU) 913/2010 for a European Rail Network for Competitive Freight
ERTMS is a major industrial project being implemented by the European Union,
which will serve to make rail transport safer and more competitive. It is made up of all
the train-borne, trackside and line side equipment necessary for supervising and
controlling, in real-time, train operation according to the traffic conditions based on
the appropriate Level of Application.
This component of ERTMS guarantees a common standard that enables trains to
cross national borders and enhances safety. It is a signalling and control system
designed to replace the several incompatible safety systems currently used by
European railways. As a subset of ERTMS, it provides a level of protection against
over speed and overrun depending upon the capability of the line side infrastructure.

Under European Union legislation, each Regulatory Body (RB) has the task to
oversee the application of Community rules and act as an appeal body in case of
disputes.
Applicants have the right to appeal to the RB if they believe that they have been
unfairly treated, discriminated against or are in any other way aggrieved. In particular,
they may appeal against decisions adopted by the IM (or where appropriate the
Railway Undertaking) concerning: a) the network statement; b) criteria contained
within it; c) the allocation process and its outcome; d) the charging scheme; e) level
or structure of infrastructure fees which it is, or may be, required to pay; f)
arrangements for access.

Rail Freight Corridor. A corridor organised and set up in line with the EU Regulation
913/2010
RailNetEurope is an association set up by a majority of European Rail Infrastructure
Managers and Allocation Bodies to enable fast and easy access to European rail, as
well as to increase the quality and efficiency of international rail traffic. Together, the
current 37 members of RailNetEurope are harmonizing conditions and procedures in
the field of international rail infrastructure management for the benefit of the entire rail
industry.
Regulation 913/2010, Art. 12 (5): 'Infrastructure managers shall, if justified by market
needs ... define the reserve capacity for international freight trains running on the
freight corridors recognizing the need for capacity of other types of transport ... and
keep this reserve available within their final working timetables to allow for a quick
and appropriate response to ad hoc requests for capacity... This EU definition deals
with commercial needs.

The movement of rail vehicles, usually within a shunting yard or similar, to rearrange
them for whatever reason. For example, freight trains that consist of single wagon
loads must be made into trains and divided according to their destinations. Thus the
cars must be shunted several times along their route (in contrast to a block train,
which carries, for example, automobiles from the plant to a port, or coal from a mine
to the power plant). This shunting is done partly at the start and end destinations and
partly (for long-distance-hauling) in marshalling yards. According to EU legislation,
shunting is an 'additional service' to be supplied to the Railway Undertaking. Where
an Infrastructure Manager offers this service, it shall supply it upon request.
Railway signalling is a system used to control railway traffic safely, essentially to
prevent trains from colliding. The main purpose of signalling is to maintain a safe
distance at all times between all trains on the running lines. The secondary aim particularly today - is to make the best use possible of the railway infrastructure, so

This paragraph presents a brief description of the lines of the Corridor 4 in each of the 3 implied networks.
France (RFF)
On French territory, the main route of Corridor 4 represents a total length of 1418 km.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document – Part 2
Version 00
12
It provides a link from the Grand Port Maritime du Havre and Eastern Europe via Woippy (594
km), and the Iberian Peninsula from Hendaye to Eastern Europe via Woippy (1176 km) or
Northern Europe via Paris.
As throughout the French National Railway Network, trains with a length of 750 m are allowed
and the track gauge is type UIC (1435 mm). Speed allowed by the infrastructure is more than
80km / h over the entire route and the maximum authorized mass is greater than 2000 gross
tons towed to an electric locomotive type BB 27000 (with the exception of the section between
Hendaye and Bayonne limited to 1200 TBR). The entire route in French territory accepts axle
load of 22.5 tonnes, is electrified either ~ 25000V or DC 1500V, and borrows lines with at least
two ways.
The line is equipped with signalling system ABS (Automatic Block Signal System) and speed
control system KVB type.
In order to simplify the presentation, the route of Corridor in France was divided into four
sections:
Section Hendaye – Ile-de-France (786 km)
Section Le Havre – Ile-de-France (171 km)
Region Ile-de-France (109 km)
Section Ile-de-France – Woippy (352 km)
Spain (ADIF)
In the Spanish territory, the main route of Corridor 4 has a total length of 2128 km.
This Corridor 4 is configured as the backbone of the transport of freight from Portugal, the
Cantabrian coast, the center and south of Spain to the countries of Central Europe and the
Atlantic and vice versa.
In the Spanish rail network the maximum allowed length of freight trains is between 460 and
600 m, depending on the section. The existing line has Iberian type gauge (1,668 mm) with a
maximum axle load of 22.5 t and disposing of single track sections (1169 km) and double track
sections (959 km). The maximum speed for freight trains is between 80 km / h and 100 km / h,
except in some towns (e.g. Madrid) where speed is reduced to 40-60 km / h., the line is
electrified 3000 V DC with the exception of the following sections that are not electrified:
Medina del Campo - Fuentes de Oñoro (Border with Portugal) (201 km)
Puertollano - Badajoz (Border with Portugal) (300 km)
Bobadilla - Algeciras (176 km)
The maximum load towed in line for an electric locomotive type 253 is between 830 and 2500
gross tons depending on the section. The line is equipped with such signalling systems BAB /
BAD / BLAU and BT (depending on the section) and speed control system type ASFA.
The Corridor 4 has been subdivided into Spanish territory differentiated into six sections, these
are:
Section Irún – Madrid (643 km)
Section Madrid – Algeciras (763 km)
Section Núcleo de Madrid (40 km)
Section Medina del Campo – Fuentes de Oñoro (Border with Portugal) (200 km)
Section Manzanares – Badajoz (Border with Portugal) (405 km)
Section Miranda de Ebro – Puerto de Bilbao (115 km)

Portugal (REFER)
In the Portuguese territory, the main route of Corridor 4 has a total length of 986 km.
The Corridor aims to be the main axis of freight between the most western part of Europe and
Central Europe, and thus connect the Portuguese ports with the rest of Europe.
In the Portuguese rail network the maximum allowed length of freight trains is between 350 and
520 m, depending on the section. The existing line has Iberian type gauge (1,668 mm) with a
maximum axle load of 22.5 t and disposing of single track sections (650 km) and double track
sections (336 km). The maximum speed for freight trains is 100 km/h. The line is electrified at
25000 V, except for the non-electrified section from Abrantes - Elvas (Border with Spain). (140
km).
The maximum load towed in line for an electric locomotive type 4700 is between 1000 and 2790
gross tons depending on the section. The line is equipped with such signaling systems RAB
(Reversible Automatic Train Control) ATC (Automatic Train Control), except for section
Abrantes - Elvas, equipped with manual locking.
In order to simplify the presentation, the route to Portugal was divided into six sections:
4
Leixões (Oporto) - Pampilhosa – Entroncamento - Lisbon, 366.2 km
Vilar Formoso/Fuentes de Oñoro (Border with Spain) - Pampilhosa, 201.9 km
Elvas/Badajoz (Border with Spain) - Entroncamento, 169.3 km
Lisbon Region, 11.3 km
Setil - Sines, 229.5 km
Feeder line of the Port of Aveiro, 8.8 km

CHARGES
6.1
Introduction
The railway services supplied to the authorized applicants and RU shall be paid directly to the
corresponding provider IM, according to the charging principles set out in each rail network.
The charging systems in each network have distinct features, and therefore they will be
described separately in this chapter.
For more information see chapter 6 of each NS
6.2
RFF Rates
The following paragraphs describe the rate applied from RFF in relation with the transport of
freight (principles and rates) as well as the system of incentives (performance scheme) and
used rates modalities.
6.2.1
Charging principles
RFF is entitled to raise charges for use of the national rail network in application of the
Transport Code. These charges, their method of calculation and collection have been
established in application of Directive 2001/14/EC regarding rail infrastructure capacity sharing
and charging, transposed into French law by Decree No. 97-446 of 5 May 1997 (amended) on
charges for the use of the national rail network.
The charges raised entitle RU to network access on a non-discriminatory transparent basis, and
make allowance for the costs of the infrastructure, the characteristics of supply and demand, the
need to optimise use of the national rail network and, in appropriate market circumstances, the
economic value to be derived from the use of the national rail network.
In accordance with Decree No. 97-446, the main lines of the national rail network have been
grouped into four categories of basic section and eighteen sub-categories.
Specific rail freight provisions: in order to limit the impact on the economics of the RU and their
shippers, the French State announced on 16 September 2009, in accordance with a proposal
from RFF, a measure which will limit the increase in the basic charges for rail freight (including
the cost of additional ancillary services provided on main lines and charges for basic, additional
and other services provided on the service infrastructure) for the 2009 – 2015 period.
For more information see chapter 6.1 (sections 6.1.1 and 6.1.2) of NS
6.2.2
Rates
There are charges for services provided on (i) main lines, and (ii) the service infrastructure. In
each of these areas we consider different types of rates in accordance with the following
distribution
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document – Part 2
Version 00
19
Charging for services provided on main lines
Charges for the minimum services
Charges for additional services
Charges for ancillary services
Charges for services provided on the service infrastructure
Charges for basic services
Charges for additional scheduled services
Charges for additional unscheduled services
Other services
Application rates are as follows:
6.2.2.1 Charging for services provided on main lines
Charges for the minimum services (main lines)
The charges for the minimum services on main lines described in § 5.2.1 include the network
access charge, the charge for reserving capacity on the main lines of the national rail network
(RR), the charge for running trains on these same lines (RC) and the charge for access to the
network (RA). RA does not apply to freight trains.
ƒ
ƒ
RR (reservation charge) is calculated through formulas mainly based on the length booked
(price kilometre booked ‘PKR’) and the period in which the path is used. On conventional
lines, and only for freight convoy train paths, the PKR varies according to the speed of the
train path reserved.
RC (running charge) formula is based on the running distance (price per kilometre operated
‘PKC’).
Freight compensation (see above) is calculated by taking the difference between the minimum
services of the 2009 scale of rates linked to the evolution of costs and the 2014 scale of rates.
The scales of charges before and after compensation are presented in Appendix 10.2.2 of
RFF’s NS. Freight compensation concerns freight trains and light running for freight purposes.
Superjumbo trains are excluded from freight compensation.
Charges for additional services (main lines)
They include charges for opening lines, stations and signal boxes not kept permanently open,
and charges for Information Systems services
Charges for ancillary services (main lines)
They include charges for conducting feasibility studies and conducting studies into exceptional
consignments prior to the ATE (Autorisation de Transport Exceptionnel) request.
For more information see chapter 6.2.1 of NS.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document – Part 2
Version 00
20
6.2.2.2 Charges for services provided on the service infrastructure
Charges for basic services (service infrastructure)
Among others, they include charges for use of electric traction installations (RCE), charges for
transmission and distribution of electric power (RCTE), charge for use of the railway installations
in combined transport terminals, charges for use of sidings in gravity marshaling yards, charges
for the operation of the gravity hump in gravity marshaling yards and charges for use of sidings.
Charges for additional scheduled services (service infrastructure)
They include the charges for the supply of traction current
Charges for additional unscheduled services (service infrastructure)
They include the charges for the operation of simple safety installations
Other services (service infrastructure)
They include the charges for access to and use of the radio channel designation "for monitoring"
and charges for a compatibility study and a frequency compatibility certificate (when RU request
the use of their own radio frequencies for personal use).
For more information see chapter 6.2.2 of NS.
6.2.3
Performance enhancement scheme with railway undertakings
In conjunction with Article 11 of Directive 2001/14/EC, a performance enhancement system will
be progressively implemented by RFF. This system aims to encourage RFF and the RU to
optimise the operation of the network and to improve the quality of the service provided for
network users.
For more information see chapter 6.3 of NS.
6.2.4
Procedures for invoicing
Invoices will be sent by RFF under the conditions set out in the contract signed with the
customer. All invoices for charges will give the amounts payable, VAT excluded. The charges
are subject to VAT at the normal rate, in accordance with the regulations in force. The deadline
for invoices for charges is 40 days from the date of issue of the invoice.
For more information see chapter 6.5 of NS.
6.3
ADIF Rates
In the sections listed below, the tariff principles and tariffs applied to the Spanish railway
network are described as well as the future implementation of the incentive system
(performance scheme) and the methods of payment of fees and railway rates.

6.3.1
Tariff Principles
Tariff principles in the Spanish network emanating from the Directive 2001/14/EC develop into
Spanish legislation by Order FOM 898/2005, of 8 April, in accordance with Article 77.1 of the
Railway Sector Act. The pricing is based on the following figures:
Railway rates and fees
Fees for services Additional and Supplementary
Railway rates are related to the provision by ADIF approval service training centers; certification
of railway equipment centers, issue of certificates to railway staff and security licenses and
certificates.
The railway charges accrued for ADIF are linked to the use of infrastructure by the RU.
Provision of Additional and Supplementary rail services is subject to the payment of rates
approved by the Ministry of Public Works under ADIF proposal. The tariffs have private prices
character.
The provision of Auxiliary Rail Services is not subject to any type of fee and its price is freely
agreed between ADIF and the RU.
6.3.2
Rates and fees
In the following chapters describes the fee for use of railway lines and the rates additional and
supplementary services.
6.3.2.1 Fee for Use of Railway Lines
The fee for the use of the Spanish railway network is structured by three specific fees: access to
the network (mode A); reserve of capacity (mode B) and effective circulation (mode C).
The parameters used in the determination of these fees are primarily based on the traffic
volume forecast and the reserved network lengths and effective circulation. For these purposes
the Spanish railway network is divided into 4 types of lines.
For more information, see chapter 6.2.2.1 of NS.
6.3.2.2 Rates additional and supplementary services
Additional and complementary services provided by ADIF to demand RU accrue from specific
rates. The table of services offered includes a total of 2 additional services and 9
complementary services, 4 of them under two methods described in section 2.5.4 (ADIF).
Additional services are access / dispatch of trains to / from railway premises and its rate is 0 €
since they are included in the use of the Network.
For more information, see chapter 6.3 of NS.
6.3.3

In order to provide homogenous and detailed information of the main aspects of the Freight
Terminals along Corridor 4, a specific card for each technical facility has been prepared with
the following content:
Location. Simplified Map signaling the location in Corridor 4.
Terminal Type. General activity typology and ownership
Contacts. Address, phone numbers, email…
Working Timetable. Timetables of managers implied are collected
Services. Main services are exposed.
Infrastructure. Track diagrams of each facility specifying electrification and remote
control are as well exposed. The effective length of the track for trains separations.
Terminals network of Corridor 4 count with a total of 39 units, distributed in the following way:
France 15; Spain 11 and Portugal 13.
In Portugal, facilities of the main complex are divided in specialty areas and in their Railway
Network Statements (NS), each one of these areas is named by the concept Freight Terminals.

TERMINAL TYPOLOGIES
As noted in part 1, there is a variety of Freight Terminals and specialized facilities along
Corridor 4. From the information contained in Railway NS and the specific analysis realized, we
can provide the following comments of the descriptions of facilities in each one of the Railway
Networks implied:
France (RFF)
From the indications provided by Réseau Ferré de France, service terminals or those which are
close to Corridor 4 in France, are distributed as follows:
Réseau Ferré National Combined Traffic Terminals (Railroads/roads)
These combined traffic terminals, whose aim consist of securing a good intermodality
railroad/road with specific infrastructures located in the terminal, belong to the Réseau Ferré de
France and are exploited by private operators. From South to North, it consists of: Hendaye,
Bordeaux – Hourcade, Cognac, Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, Valenton and Noisy-le-Sec.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 3
Version 00
4
Combined Traffic Terminals (Railroads/roads) located outside national railroad
networks.
There are also combined traffic terminals which are independent from the infrastructures
managers.
In France, the European Freight Center (EFC) is the logistic platform located near Bayonne,
which includes an intermodal railroad/road platform, as well as logistics warehouses.
Marshalling yards (Railroad/Railroad)
Marshalling yards, which belong to the infrastructure managers, consist of a group of facilities
that allow to marshal freight cars with the objective of creating or forming new trains. We also
find a group of tracks that allow the exit and formation of new trains in gravity shunting.
In France, the technique used is gravity shunting; two gravity shunting can be found in service
near the corridor: Le Bourget in Île-de-France and Woippy, North of Metz.
Port combined traffic terminals. (railroad/sea/road/river)
The main maritime ports located in Corridor 4 have intermodal facilities located in the port
railroad network. The main siding track links the railroad network that belongs to the national
infrastructure managers to the port railroad. The facilities available in port terminals can also
have connections between road and river transport.
In France, the following ports: Bayonne, Bordeaux – Bassens, Le Havre and Rouen (river port),
benefit from the facilities mentioned and are located along Corridor 4.
Facilities that allow connections between UIC and Iberian networks (railroad-railroad)
The connection between Iberian (Spanish and Portuguese) and French networks implies
adapting the specific track gauge of the Iberian networks.
There are 2 connection techniques for a railroad network with different gauges: on one hand
there is an operation area for gauge change which is operated by a private company called
Transfesa, in Hendaye, located in the French side of the border; on the other hand an operation
area for transfer facilities in Irún (Spanish side)
Spain (ADIF)
In the Spanish railway NS, terminals are generally named Freight Main Logistics Facilities
without any classification.
Nevertheless, each Terminal comprises two types of facilities, since in each one of them the
service timetable is different:
Technical Facilities (equipment for technical railroad treatment)
Logistic Facilities (equipment for load/downloading and logistic support)
In the specific card of these Terminals, provision of services timetables are collected in each
one of the facilities.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 3
Version 00
5
Portugal (REFER)
In the corresponding railway NS, no classification is considered. Nevertheless and as previously
exposed, the main complexes of freight management of the Portuguese railway Network are not
regarded as a single terminal, but each specialization area is regarded as a specific Terminal. In
some cases, inside the main complexes, public and private management can coexist.
4
ACCESS TO THE TERMINALS INFRASTRUCTURES
In all of the three networks exists the right of the railway companies to access from the main line
to the Terminals infrastructures of Corridor 4.
In the NS of RFF and REFER it is detailed in specific sections related to this access that it is
included in the fee for the infrastructure use.
In the ADIF case, this access is regulated through two additional specific services that are
complementary to the minimal group of benefits of the infrastructure use. However, ADIF
provides this service without cost for the railway companies.

1. INTRODUCTION
This part 4 of the Corridor Information Document presents the structure and specific
procedures about allocation and management of railway capacity over the Corridor 4,
including the subjects concerning traffic management and One-Stop-Shop (C-OSS). Several
paragraphs make reference to European Regulation 913/2010 ‘concerning the European
Railway Network for a competitive freight service’.
The aim of this part is, therefore, to inform the Corridor 4 applicants about the basic operating
rules in terms of allocation of capacity and traffic management, including traffic management in
degraded situations.
This part 4 contents the offer and demand of capacity and especially the role of the C-OSS as
a coordinator in the management of the capacity offered by the Infrastructure Managers (IM).
Besides, it describes traffic management in normal and degraded situations, and it finally
provides information about specific traffics.
Particularly, this part defines the pre-arranged paths offered by the Corridor 4 to its clients, the
priority rules to allocate capacity, the conditions to use the paths and the rules for the
cancelation of allocated capacity.
2. THE ONE-STOP-SHOP (C-OSS)
2.1. Introduction
The European Economic Interest Grouping of Rail Freight Corridor 4 (EEIG CFM4) has
implemented a One-stop-shop for Corridor 4 (C-OSS), in accordance to article 13-1 of the
Regulation 913/2010. Its first role is to give to applicants the possibility to make their requests
and to receive an answer in a single place and with a single operation, concerning the
capacities of the infrastructure for a freight train crossing at least one of the boundaries of the
Corridor 4.
The One-stop-shop operates in a clear and non-discriminatory manner. For this, a register is
set up and freely available to all interested parties. It shows the date of the requests, the name
of the applicants, the details of documentation supplied and the incidents that may take place.
These activities are beheld by the control organisms: ARAF (France), CRF (Spain), and IMT
(Portugal).
2.2. Capacity allocation
2.2.1. Generalities
The One-stop-shop takes a decision about the requests of capacity, such as the pre-arranged
paths and the reserve of capacity (article 13-3 of the Regulation 913/2010). It allocates the
capacity in accordance to the capacity allocation rules set up in the directive 2001/14 and in
this Corridor Information Document, and it informs on time the three IM about the requests and
about the decisions taken.
There are three type of paths in the corridor:
-
Paths crossing a border included in any Rail Freight Corridor and running, at least
partially, on a Pre-arranged Path (PaP). The correspondent requests will be addressed
to the C-OSS.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
4
-
-
International paths running, at least partially, over the infrastructure of Corridor 4 and
crossing a border in any Rail Freight Corridor but not requesting any PaP. The
correspondent requests can be addressed to the C-OSS or directly to the involved IMs
The national paths are dedicated to trains running through one part of the corridor and
not crossing any border in a Rail Freight Corridor. They are defined and managed by
the IM. The C-OSS is not involved.
2.2.2. Priority Rules
Regarding the capacity allocation, the priority rules in Corridor 4 vary on each of the crossed
countries. Nevertheless, the EEIG CFM4 of the corridor works on the coordination of priority
rules for the distribution of the capacity.
In Portugal, these are the priorities that apply for allocation capacity and management of
REFER network:
1) The top priority level is public use, particularly services carried out under a public
concession contract.
2) Suburban passenger services with a frequency equal or greater than six trains every
hour during rush-hour periods.
3) Suburban passenger services with a frequency lower than 6 trains every hour during
rush-hour periods.
4) Regular high quality national inter-city services and international passenger services.
5) Other medium to long-distance passenger services.
6) International freight or express services.
7) National freight services.
8) Empty train runs.
9) Other services such as rehearsal runs, crew training or contractors’ trains.
10) Requests which cause less relative network impact.
11) Requests which use the highest number of identical paths.
12) Requests which use the most train kilometres (TK) on the network.
In Spain, the regulation FOM/897/2005 sets up the priorities to allocation within the frame of
the requests for capacity or within the frame of infrastructure saturation. In case of coincident
requests for the same period or if the network turns out to be saturated, several elements are
classified regarding priority rules. First of all, a “specific attention” must be given to freight
services, but it is the Ministry of Transport who sets up the type of services in each line. The
priority may also be agreed regarding a decreasing order:
1) Specific rules established by the Ministry of Transport to different services inside each
line, especially freight transport services
2) If there are dedicated infrastructures
3) In case of a declared service of public interest
4) Allocation and effective use by the applicant, in previous service schedules, of the time
periods whose allocation is requesting.
5) International transport
6) If there is any framework agreement concerning the specific capacity request.
7) If the applicant is requesting a regular path
8) According to the global effectiveness of the system
In France, the priority order is as follows:
1) National or international services which, in a part or in the whole path, go through the
national network specifically dedicated for them
2) International freight transport services
3) Services attached to a public service contract with a transport authority.

2.2.3. Paths allocation procedure
Publication phase (X-12 – X-11)
The publication of pre-arranged paths (PaPs) will be done by the C-OSS via the tool named
Path Coordination System (PCS).
Prearranged paths application phase ( X-11 – X-8):
Between X-11 and X-8 the PaPs shall be published and available so that Applicants can
submit applications for the annual timetable. Applications are only accepted after the
presentation of the Declaration in appendix 1 by the Applicant. All general rules specified in
the Network Statements published by the 3 IM applies to the applications, namely regarding
access and usage of the infrastructure and charging.
For the management of the international path requests it is very important that Applicants
place an International Request with complete information of final origin and destination of the
path.
The tool for requesting capacity to the C-OSS will be the Path Coordination System (PCS).
As a general rule all requests shall be placed directly to the C-OSS through PCS. Only in
justified and exceptional cases such as technical problems with PCS the requests would be
inserted in PCS by the C-OSS.
The request will be for an international train path using Corridor 4 itineraries and crossing at
least one border (included in Corridor 4 itineraries).
If the request crosses a border which is not in the scope of Corridor 4, it will be considered
whether the request shall be forwarded to a different C-OSS or to the IM involved or if it will be
managed by the C-OSS. The applicant will be immediately informed.
The international request shall be previously coordinated and agreed between all the RUs
involved in its itinerary. Nevertheless the requests will be placed by the applicant via PCS
directly to the C-OSS and will include all the necessary data.
C-OSS tasks in this phase will be to:
Keep a register of PaPs requested by applicants
Display PaPs available for Corridor 4
Receive the paths request for Corridor 4
Check the quality of the content in the path request and inform Applicants if updating is
needed.
Allocation phase for the annual timetable (X-8 – X+12):
Priority criteria for the allocation of pre-arranged paths requested before X-8
In case of conflicting PaP requests, the C-OSS shall base its decisions according to:
Articles 45 and 46 of Directive 2012/24/EU.
RFC-4 Capacity Allocation Framework.
Corridor priority rules defined above
A value calculated according to the total length of the requested path (including feeder and
outflow paths and connecting point or sections between corridors) in combination with the
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
6
length of the requested pre-arranged path and running days can enable the comparison of
different applications with each other.
First step: only the path travelled along the Rail Freight Corridor (LPAP) and the running days
(YRD) are taken into account:
LPAP x YRD = K
Second step: if after the first step it results the same priority value (K), the complete length of
the requested path (LTP) has to be taken into consideration and the full formula has to be used:
(LPAP + LTP) x YRD = K
Third step: if after the second step it results the same priority value (K) “first come-first served”
logic will be applied.
In case of conflict on an overlapping section among more than one corridor above mentioned
formulas could be used. Each C-OSS calculates its own value according to the path request.
The Applicant with a higher priority value will get the conflicted path section.
The above described priority rules involve only requests placed on time (before X-8).
Regarding late and ad-hoc path requests (see below) the principle “first come - first served”
will be applied.
NOTE: Without agreement reached at European level regarding the availability of information
between IM, the geographic scope to be considered for solving the formula will be limited to
the infrastructure of the three IM involved in Corridor 4. No other IM have any commitment with
MB of Corridor 4 in order to guarantee the availability of the information needed.
Pre-booking phase by C-OSS (X-8 – X-7.5).
This is the allocation phase concerning requests for PaPs for the annual timetable. The tasks
of the C-OSS in this phase are described below:
The C-OSS shall keep a register of all activities performed by the C-OSS, based on
article 13.5, concerning the allocation of infrastructure capacity, and keep it available
for Regulatory Bodies, Ministries and Applicants.
The C-OSS shall ensure the update of the register and manage access to it for the
above-mentioned parties. The content of the register will only be communicated to
these interested parties on request.
The C-OSS will decide on the allocation of PaPs requests and communicate the result to the
Applicant through PCS.
The C-OSS will forward the application to the competent IM if the Applicant which didn´t obtain
the PaP requested does not accept the alternative PaPs or no other PaPs fit with the request.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
7
Construction phase (X-7.5 – X-5.5)
C-OSS will prepare answers to and from IM, C-OSS of others corridors and Applicants
according to the path requests placed on time (X-8), including both feeder and outflow paths
as well as sections of PaPs and taylor made solutions requested to IM.
The concerned IMs will deliver to the C-OSS their results concerning feeder / outflow path,
taylor made paths construction and possible PaPs adaptations for fitting. Then the C-OSS will
communicate the draft offer to the Applicants.
Publication deadline of draft offer to the Applicants (X-5)
Publication of draft timetable:
PaPs,
Sections (feeder/outflow) and PaPs adaptations provided by the IM.
Observations from Applicants (X-5 – X-4)
Applicants will check the draft offer and make their remarks. Then Applicants will forward their
final decision to the C-OSS.
Post processing and final allocation for annual Timetable (X-4 – X-3.5)
The C-OSS is responsible for providing the final offer and allocation of PaPs to the Applicant,
based on the following information given by IM:
Fulfil answer to the request
Partial offer agreed with customer
Different offer agreed with customer
No offer
Information on access to terminals.
In case of complaints regarding the allocation of PaPs (e.g. due to a decision based on the
priority rules for allocation), the Applicants may address to the respective regulatory body.
Requests for « late paths » (X-8 – X-2)
According to the PaPs remaining after the allocation of the PaPs requested before X-8, the COSS will receive and allocate late path requests (requests placed between X-7.5 and X-2).
The C-OSS is responsible for their allocation following the principle “first come - first served”.
If the late path request cannot match with PaPs offer, if there is no other/suitable alternative
PaP or if a flexible approach is needed, the C-OSS forwards the request to the competent IMs.
The involved IM will deliver their results to the C-OSS; in the end the C-OSS will communicate
the final offer to the Applicant.
Draft offers to late path requests will be offered from X-4, after the final answers for path
requests submitted before the 2nd Monday in April (X-8). The last possible date for submitting
path offers to applicants for late path requests is one month before the start of the next
Timetable (X-1).
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4

Requests for « ad-hoc paths » (X-2 – X+12)
According to Article 14.5 of the Regulation, and taking into account the PaPs allocated at X-4,
the existing traffic and IM specific situation, the MB will define a reserve capacity based on
prearranged paths in order to satisfy the ad-hoc path requests placed by the Applicants
between X-2 until X+12 for international freight trains on the Corridor.
The reserve capacity will be displayed at X-2 in PCS and protected from any modification by
the IM.
In this phase (X-2 – X+12), the C-OSS takes the allocation decision for reserve capacity
requests according to the rule “first come – first served”.
In case of applications including feeder/outflow paths, tailor made solutions and/or terminal
slots, the C-OSS will forward the request to the concerned national IMs and ensure a
consistent path construction between the feeder and the Corridor-related path section.
The C-OSS will not answer to any request of PaPs in reserve capacity placed 30 days before
the running day. Requests with shorter time limit should be addressed to the national IMs
directly.
2.3. Other activities of the C-OSS
The One-Stop-Shop plays an essential role in the allocation of capacity. Basically, it is an
instrument of coordination, and for this reason:
It delivers to the IM the non-satisfied requests for capacity. The IM makes a decision
about these requests and gives back an answer to the C-OSS. The C-OSS beholds the
use of PaPs and, in general, it establishes and maintains the process of
communication with the RU and the Terminal Managers of the corridor.
It transmits information between the EEIG CFM4 and the RU. In this case, it provides
basic information about the distribution of the infrastructure capacity and shows the
available capacity at the moment of the request and its characteristics according to the
authorised parameters such as speed, length, weight limit or axle load. It is not only a
transmitter but also a manager of this information addressed to the different actors.
Among the information to be provided to the different actors, there is:
The access conditions to the corridor infrastructures and connected terminals
The procedures for capacity allocation.
The procedures for traffic management, especially in case of degraded traffic.
And, in general, the access to information gathered by the EEIG CFM4 about the Network
Statements, works programs for infrastructure, etc.
The C-OSS is involved in the coordination of possessions planned on the rail freight corridor. It
should organise one or two meetings per year (depending on the needs) dedicated to the
coordination of possessions. IMs may meet in ad-hoc bilateral or trilateral meetings to cover
specific issues. The results will be reported to the MB and published information will be
updated if necessary.
Restrictions regarding rail infrastructure or loading/unloading facilities inside terminal areas are
the responsibility of terminal owners/operators. If terminal owners/operators provide
information about these restrictions, they have to be taken into consideration in the
coordination process and the information may be published by using the Rail Freight Corridors’
tool. Terminals may also take part in the coordination meetings.

information on these updates at any moment (ex.: per quarter, monthly and at any moment in
case of occurrence of modifications).
3. CAPACITY OFFER
3.1. The pre-arranged paths (PAPs)
In accordance to article 14-3 of the Regulation, the three infrastructure managers of the
Corridor 4 define together the pre-arranged paths for the international freight trains of the
Corridor. To reach this, they must take in account:
(i)
The evaluation, by the EEIG CFM4, of the necessities of capacity of freight trains
running through the Corridor 4
(ii)
The necessities of other types of transports, as the passenger transport.
These paths are published at the deadline of eleven months before the annual timetable
period.
3.2. The reserve capacity
The IM have decided to create a reserve capacity (article 14-5 of the Regulation) based on
PaPs to allow a quick and optimal answer to the requests of ad-hoc paths.
The infrastructure managers of the corridor will keep this reserve available in their definitive
service timetable.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4

4. AUTHORISED APPLICANTS
According to article 15th of the Regulation, apart from national RU and their own international
alliances, other applicants may request international pre-arranged paths, including feeder and
outflow paths. It is the case of shippers, freight forwarders and combined transport operators,
and also public authorities with the capability to provide transport services.
Authorized applicants and RU must be registered by the C-OSS and for that purpose must
present the signed Declaration in appendix 1 before submitting their first capacity request, in
order for it to be accepted. The C-OSS may ask the candidate additional information to confirm
its eligibility as authorized applicant.
The authorized applicants may request pre-arranged paths with no obligation to communicate
the identity of the company which will provide rail traction. The C-OSS must be informed at
least 5 days before the train running about the identity of the RU. This information will be
immediately addressed by the C-OSS to the correspondent IM.
Therefore, it is not necessary for the C-OSS to know in advance, in order to assign a prearranged path, the identity of the RU which will provide traction. But, if this information is not
provided in time to the C-OSS it may be a cause for cancellation of the assigned path.
The elected RU must establish a partnership with each of the IM, under the regulation of each
of the networks. They must also comply with all the national legal exigencies of each country
and they must hold all the legal documents as security certificate, railway undertaking license,
liability insurance, etc.
The Authorised Applicant must pay all reservation charges and cancellation fees, according to
the conditions established in each NS and where relevant, until it has appointed a railway
undertaking.
5. FRAMEWORK FOR CAPACITY ALLOCATION
The framework for the allocation of capacity of Corridor 4 was approved by the Executive
Board. This document is presented in appendix 2.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
11
6. TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
6.1. General principles
The aim of the traffic management is to ensure the circulation of the trains according to the
circulation graphic approved by the IM. Under any circumstance and especially in case of
malfunctions due to infrastructure failures (capacity restriction, functioning incidents, etc.),
railway undertakings causes (delays, suppressions...) or external causes (bad weather, action
of third parties...), the companies responsible for trains circulation in each country shall apply
the following principles in their relationship with RU:
Transparency in processes of decision: information about theorique circulation (as
foreseen in the circulation graphic), estimated circulation (regarding the situation at the
moment of this estimation) and real circulation are available for any network user, from the
moment the train running is announced, as any piece of information sent by the RU about
their trains running.
Non-discrimination between RU, since all the traffics have the same importance to the
corridor.
Safety: in order to ensure the national railway network safety, RU operating with
passengers and freights shall respect any safety measure established, especially in case
of management of emergency situations or an incidence in the infrastructure.
6.2. Border crossing
The only compulsory documentation in the cross border is the international vehicle card, which
mentions very different subjects (dangerous goods, obligation of phytosanitary control,
products for alimentation, animals, cereals, etc).
Hitherto there is no interoperable material between the Corridor 4 networks, which requires a
change of traction and train driver in each border crossing. In this case, the new train driver
must verifier the respect of all the security rules of the train (in its wagon composition),
according to the exigencies and documentation of each national network.
6.2.1. Connection between Spain and France
This connexion supports the greatest hindrances, due to the different track gauge, UIC in
French side and a specific gauge in Spanish side. The transfer between the two networks is
done inside the complex Irun/Hendaye, with different gauge tracks and blended itineraries
between the two stations.
Regarding the different types of freights and loads, different procedures may be applied:
- Container transfer using gantry cranes
- Manual transfer for different size merchandises (as motor vehicles)
- In certain cases, load transfer using individual cranes
- Axle changing is done by the private company TRANSFESA (DB group)
Due to the different gauge of tracks between Spain and France, a freight transfer operation
need a stop in the border estimated between 6 and 8 hours, depending on the methods and
characteristics.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
12
6.2.2. Connection between Portugal and Spain
The connexion between Spanish and Portuguese networks of the Corridor 4 takes place in the
borders of Elvas-Badajoz and Vilar Formoso-Fuentes de Oñoro. Different from the FrenchSpanish border, this connection has the same gauge of track in both sides, thus times of stops
are minimal.
Procedures:
Stop for technical verification Spain side 15/30 minutes,
Operating Procedures of Regulated Security,
Stop time requested by operators for technical and operational issues: traction change,
fuel supply, crew change, meal breaks for train drivers…
Required documentation:
Permanent documents,
Temporary rules and instructions,
Traffic and train movement management,
Security.
6.3. Change of locomotives and drivers
The RU will request the locomotive and driver changes to their best criteria under the current
regulation in each country.
These changes are taken into account as far as possible in the capacity offered by Corridor 4.
7. TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT IN CASE OF DISTURBANCES
7.1. Common objectives in case of disturbances
The IM aim to set up a common procedure to ensure a good coordination of the tools in case
of traffic degradation in Corridor 4.
The main objective of this coordination is to establish the proper steps and communication
channels between the different agents (chiefly the IM and the clients) which could be affected
by a change in the circulation conditions of Corridor 4.
The IM may need the RU to put its human and technical resources which best fit to restore the
circulation as soon as possible.
Several types of incidences must be communicated between the IM and the railway
undertakings:
- Interference producing an impact over the railway traffic.
- Traffic interruption, including a forecast for the re-opening.
- Restriction of the capacity of the infrastructure, including a forecast about the time it
may last.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
13
7.2. Priority rules in operation
In France
Priority in circulation of trains
In case of a circulation conflict, trains running through compatible paths shall disturb each
other.
A non-discriminatory treatment for RU means:
- Conflicts between trains from different companies: a train in schedule (less than 5 min
delay) cannot be displaced by a delayed train. If all the trains in conflict are delayed,
the rule is as follows: identical priority agreed for all the trains which composition allows
the circulation at the same limit speed, not taking into account which causes or
responsibilities are in the origin of the conflict. Trains are classified by decreasing
speed and, in case of equivalence, by agreed priority to passenger trains. In case of
new equivalence, priority is given to the train whose theoretical timetable is previous to
the other.
- Conflicts between trains from the same company: according to the principles told by
the affected company, as long as there does not imply a reduction of the network
capacity. In absence of these principles, the above rule is applied.
To determine the order of circulation of the trains coming from a point or segment of conflict,
each train is placed according to the above priorities. This rule is only applied if the
repositioning of the trains is physically possible. If not, it must be applied at the first possible
point.
This rule is not applied if the disturbed train with priority runs in advance. It is not applied if the
disturbance of a priority train would imply a delay not longer than 3 minutes.
The rule is not absolute, since a circulation chief, a regulator, an axle coordinator or a national
coordinator may change it if justified by the global fluidity of the system, or the research of a
maximum speed. It may also be derogated for these reasons in dense areas (ex. Paris
suburbs), where the research of the maximum speed prevails over maintaining on time each
circulation running through the lines. Each of these rules prevails also over the own RU rules.
Capacity Restriction
This rule limits the applicability frame of the precedent rule. In case of an important incident
provoking capacity restrictions, with no chance to admit the foreseen traffic, trains not yet
running which would take the affected itinerary will function under a rule of distribution of the
residual capacity in the main itinerary and in the deflected one, if it exists.
The number of paths running through the restrained itinerary -and optionally any alternative
itinerary- are discounted for periods of one hour (to take into account rush-hour conditions)
and the available capacity is worked out. Generally, the number of resulting paths is bigger
than those the network can absorb. An authorised number of paths for each RU is fixed in
proportion from the initial number and the time lapse to make the choice. The RU gives an
answer choosing from the trains which should run in a normal situation.
The rest of surplus paths are removed in a crises graphic that substitutes the theoretical
circulation graphic. If the time limit for answering is exceeded, it is decided ex-officio which
trains will run.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
14
In Spain
The traffic management is done by the IM. The main objective is to adjust the effective running
of all the trains within the capacities which were attributed. For this, RU shall provide all the
requested pieces of information to the IM, as and when required, before the train departure or
during its trip.
If the technical characteristics of the train are different from those indicated in the capacity
request, the infrastructure manager shall adopt any convenient measure, including the running
prohibition.
Regarding the operational traffic management, the companies must respect the applicable
documents about network circulation.
Priority rules
1) Priority to trains having obtained capacity
2) Priority to trains running through their path from those running with delay, in order to
minimize the delay propagation
3) The perturbations due to technical causes, accidents or similar will be managed case
by case, in order to return as soon as possible to the normal situation.
In Portugal
The priority rules for circulation are identical to those for capacity allocation (see above).
7.3. Information transmittal
The infrastructure manager is responsible for the communication and must deliver the
information as soon as possible by the standard channels to the railway operators in its own
network. The train destination, the terminals and any other facilities must be also informed.
7.4. Management of emergency situations
The EEIG CFM4 can set up in an emergency situation a plan of urgency, to define the
alternative procedures to normal operations, in order to create a global action plan to manage
and solve any facts disturbing the normal development of the railway traffic.
In case of perturbation of the railway traffic, for a technical failure, an accident or any other
incident, the IM of the corridor must take all the proper measures to ensure the return to
normal circulation of trains.
7.5. Assistance to broken or panned trains
In France, a train stopped for a failure cannot stay longer than 15 minutes in current track.
After this time and not being forecast to run again, it must be put in place all the measures to
ensure the track liberation according to the suitable security procedure.
In Spain, ADIF has set up an Emergency Plan (‘Plan de Contingencia’), approved by the
Ministry of the Development, enlisting the procedures to be used in these situations. In case of
a stopped freight train, ADIF may require the use of traction resources from RU to remove the
panned train towards the nearest stop, in order to restore as soon as possible the normal
conditions for circulation in the line.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
15
In Portugal, in the case of disturbances to rail traffic due to accidents or technical failures,
REFER will take all necessary measures to re-establish all normal operating conditions. In the
case of emergencies and technical failures that render the infrastructure temporarily unusable,
allocated train paths can be cancelled without notice during the period needed to repair the
system. If the track is blocked by rolling stock, REFER will assume the role of coordinating the
activities and the necessary resources to clear the blockage. REFER may demand any RU to
place at its disposal the resources needed to rapidly resolve the situation even if the RU is not
the direct cause of the obstruction. The RU that put these resources at REFER disposal to
resolve obstructions caused by third parties have the right to be compensated to the amount
agreed upon with the entity that caused the obstruction in the first place and which will have to
bear the costs. REFER will take all necessary measures to re-establish all normal operating
conditions.
7.6. Itinerary modifications
In case of urgency or absolute necessity, for a temporary non-disposal of the infrastructure,
the IM of the Corridor 4 may change the paths, without previous information, during the time
needed until return to normality. They must also make the needed repairs during a suitable
time period. They must inform as soon as possible about the situation to the RU and other
applicants.
In this case, nor the authorised applicants or the RU may claim any compensation or
indemnification.

APPENDIX 2 / Framework for capacity allocation on Corridor 4
According to the document approved by the Executive board of corridor 4, this framework for
capacity allocation on the corridor (“Corridor-Framework”) concerns only the allocation linked
to the prearranged train paths and to the reserve capacity given to the Corridor One-StopShop (“C-OSS”) for freight trains, crossing at least one border on a corridor as foreseen by
article 14.4 of the Regulation, namely where the allocation of capacity by the C-OSS is
mandatory, according to article 13 of the Regulation.
1. Principles of supply of pre-arranged paths
The capacity provided by the national Infrastructure Managers and Allocation Bodies
(“IMs/ABs”) for the prearranged train paths and the reserve capacity to the C-OSS, is taken
from the national capacity dedicated to freight traffic.
The construction of pre-arranged paths and the definition of reserve capacity, is realised by
the IMs/ABs in accordance with article 14 of the Regulation, by taking into account i.a.:
the Transport Market Study, analysing the demand for international freight traffic on the
corridor and covering the different types of traffic, in particular passenger traffic;
the request for infrastructure capacity relating to the past and present working
timetables;
Details of supply of the pre-arranged paths are explained in the Corridor Information
Document.
These pre-arranged paths are handed over to the C-OSS for exclusive management at the
latest X-11 and for reserve capacity at least 60 days before the train running (X-2).
The IMs/ABs will aim to include in the supply of pre-arranged train paths, the access and the
paths connecting terminals where feasible.
The pre-arranged paths managed by the C-OSS for the allocation in the yearly timetable and
the reserve capacity are dedicated to the corridor. Therefore it is essential that the displayed
dedicated capacity is protected against subsequent adaptations by the IMs/ABs critical for the
applicants.
The Management Board shall decide whether and if so to what extent the unused capacity
shall be returned by the C-OSS to the relevant IMs/ABs at X-7.5, according to a principle
published in the corridor information document and taking into account the need for sufficient
reserve capacity of good quality.
2 PRINCIPLES OF ALLOCATION OF THE PREARRANGED TRAIN PATHS AND
RESERVE CAPACITY BY THE C-OSS
The decision on the allocation of pre-arranged train paths and reserve capacity on the freight
corridor is taken by the C-OSS, in accordance with article 13 of the Regulation.
Like the IMs/ABs, the C-OSS has to respect the rules of Directive 2001/14/EC, especially
article 4.3.
The activities within the timetabling processes concerning pre-arranged train paths and
reserve capacity are described in # 3.3.4.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
18
2.1
General principles related to the establishment of the C-OSS
The C-OSS has to be established under and is governed by the principles of transparency,
non-discrimination, independence, balance and fairness.
The Management Board is responsible for designating or for setting up the C-OSS including its
operating modalities. The Implementation Plan, which will be part of the Corridor Information
Document to be published by the Management Board according to article 18 of the Regulation,
will describe the competences, the form of organisation, the access rights, the liability vis-à-vis
applicants and the mode of functioning of the C-OSS and its conditions of use.
2.2
Principles of transparency and non-discrimination
In addition to the Corridor Information Document, once adopted, the IMs/ABs will publish the
functioning and set-up of the C-OSS in their network statements. They will also mention the
Corridor Information Document in their own network statements.
In accordance with article 13 of the Regulation, any application of pre-arranged paths and
reserve capacity for corridor infrastructure capacity, crossing at least one border on a corridor,
from a railway undertaking or authorised applicant will be conducted (requests handling,
coordinating with IMs/ABs, monitoring, deciding and answering) by the C-OSS. Each
application should be registered by the C-OSS and be subject to an appropriate response.
After receipt of all path requests for prearranged paths at X-8 (regular deadline for submitting
path requests for the annual timetable) the C-OSS will decide on the allocation of pre-arranged
paths without delay until X-7.5 and mark the allocation in the path register accordingly.
According to article 13.3 and 13.4 of the Regulation, in the same way it is requested that the
C-OSS inform the competent IMs/ABs on its received applications and the decisions taken on
them without delay. It is also requested that for any application which cannot be met, the COSS shall forward the application for infrastructure capacity without any delay to the
competent IMs/ABs, which shall take a decision on that application and communicate this
decision to the C-OSS for further processing. This procedure allows a follow-up on
applications for international rail freight paths on the corridor that the C-OSS could receive.
2.3
Principles of fairness and independence
The C-OSS respects the duties of confidentiality regarding the applications received.
In the context of the corridor, and consequently from a view point of international cooperation,
the experts of the C-OSS staff are, within their mandate, to work independently from their
IMs’/ABs’ tasks and they are ensuring allocation decisions for pre-arranged paths and reserve
capacity on a corridor level. However, the C-OSS experts may work with the IMs/ABs for the
purpose of coordinating the allocation of corridor paths with the allocation of feeder/outflow
national paths.
2.4
Principles of cooperation and balance
The IMs/ABs will coordinate and pool their pre-arranged corridor train paths into the prearranged path catalogue of the C-OSS in order to take into account the needs of the market,
expressed through i.a. the Transport Market Study. The Management Board will inform the
Executive Board on an annual basis on the quantitative and qualitative development of
corridor train paths, according to article 19.2 of the Regulation (see # 3.3.3 for a minimum set
of indicators).
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 4
Version 00
19
2.5
Priorities to be applied by the C-OSS in case of conflicting applications
After receipt of all requests for prearranged train paths at X-8, the C-OSS will decide on the
allocation of the prearranged paths.
In the event of conflicting applications, the C-OSS will apply the common priority rule for
coordination which focuses on rewarding applicants with higher commercial value from
IMs/ABs point of view and to maximise the use of capacity (longer pre-arranged path sections
and more often). The formula is described in # 3.3.5.
Changes to this annex can be done under the condition of a common agreement of both
Executive and Management Boards.
This priority rule for coordination concerns only the pre-arranged train paths of the corridor and
are applied only between X-8 and X-7.5 in case of conflicting applications.
Once the allocation decision is made following requests until X-8, the C-OSS will propose
alternative pre-arranged train paths to the dissatisfied applicants. If these alternative solutions
are not sufficiently adequate for the applicant, the C-OSS will forward the requests to the
competent IMs/ABs according to article 13.4 of the Regulation. Those path requests should be
considered by IMs/ABs as having been submitted before the X-8 deadline.
Regarding the requests placed after X-8, the priority rule for coordination “first in, first served”
will be applied.
These rules will be inserted in the national network statements of each member of the
Management Board of the corridor, describing the corridor aspects, and will afterwards be
published in the Corridor Information Document.
3. Monitoring of the allocation process
On an annual basis the process of capacity allocation will be evaluated on the corridor with a
view to a continuous improvement of the process. The evaluation will be done after the
allocation of the annual timetable, i.e. in period Mid-August – October each year.
The evaluation will be done by the Management Board, and the Railway Undertaking Advisory
Group and Terminal Advisory Group will be consulted.
A draft evaluation report with recommendations will be discussed in the Executive Board in the
4th Quarter of each year.
The results of the monitoring will be published by the Management Board, according to article
19 of the Regulation.
The first evaluation report will be done for the year 2014.
Indicators to be monitored on an bi-annual basis (period 1: mid December till mid June, period
2: mid June to mid December (change of timetable):
pre-arranged train path:
o
number of offered pre-arranged train paths X-11 per section
o

5. Description of the priority rule for coordination at X-8 in the event of conflicting
requests for Pre-arranged Paths
LPAP = Total requested length of pre-arranged path
LTP = Total requested length of complete path
YRD = Number of requested running days for the timetable period.
K = The rate for priority
All lengths are counted in kilometres.
The priority is calculated according to this formula:
(LPAP + LTP ) x YRD = K
This formula can be used so that in a first step the priority value (K) is calculated using only
total requested length of pre-arranged path (LPAP) multiplied by the Number of requested
running days (YRD).
If the requests cannot be separated in this way, the Total requested length of complete path
(LTP) will also be added in the calculation in order to separate the requests.

CHAPTER 1
INTRODUCTION
Within the framework of the European Union new Strategy for jobs and growth, the creation
of an internal rail market, in particular with regard to freight transport, is an essential factor in
making progress towards sustainable mobility.
Council Directive 91/440/EEC of 29 July 1991 on the development of the Community's
railways and Directive 2001/14/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26
February 2001 on the allocation of railway infrastructure capacity and the levying of charges
for the use of railway infrastructure have been important steps in the creation of the internal
rail market.
In order to be competitive with other modes of transport, international and national rail freight
services, which have been opened up to competition since 1 January 2007, must be able to
benefit from a good quality and sufficiently financed railway infrastructure, namely, one which
allows freight transport services to be provided under good conditions in terms of commercial
speed and journey times and to be reliable, namely, that the service it provides actually
corresponds to the contractual agreements entered into with the railway undertakings.
In this context, the establishment of international rail corridors for a European rail network for
competitive freight on which freight trains can run under good conditions and easily pass
from one national network to another would allow for improvements in the conditions of use
of the infrastructure.
The implementation of international rail freight corridors forming a European rail network for
competitive freight should be conducted in a manner consistent with the trans-European
Transport Network (TEN-T) and/or the European Railway Traffic Management System
(ERTMS) corridors. To that end, the coordinated development of the networks is necessary,
and in particular as regards the integration of the international corridors for rail freight into the
existing TEN-T and the ERTMS corridors.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01

The conception of freight corridors should ensure continuity along corridors, insuring the
necessary interconnections between the existing rail infrastructures.
Coordination should be ensured between Member States and infrastructure managers in
order to guarantee the most efficient functioning of freight corridors. To allow this, operational
measures should be taken in parallel with investments in infrastructure and in technical
equipment such as ERTMS that should aim at increasing rail freight capacity and efficiency.
The aim of the Regulation (EU) No 913/2010 of 22 September 2010 is to improve the
efficiency of rail freight transport relative to other modes of transport through the creation of 9
European rail freight corridors.
With regard to the Atlantic coast, the European Commission has selected the Rail Freight
Corridor No. 4 connecting Portugal, Spain and France, namely the following points:
“Sines-Lisbon/Leixões, Sines-Elvas/Algeciras, Madrid-Medina del Campo / Bilbao / San
Sebastian-Irun-Bordeaux-Paris / Le Havre / Metz”,
which will constitute the hubs of the corridor.
Corridor No. 4 connects directly two other corridors – Corridor No. 2 (“North Sea –
Mediterranean”), in Metz Woippy, and Corridor No. 6 (“Mediterranean”), in Madrid.
In accordance with the conclusions of Regulation 913/2013, the Rail Freight Corridor 4 was
established on the 10 November 2013.
This document is aimed at defining the means and strategy which the interested parties
intend to implement in order to draw up during a given period the necessary and sufficient
measures to establish Corridor 4.

2.4 FACTORS LIMITING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE CORRIDOR
In terms of infrastructures limitations, the following main points can be noted:
the different track gauge between the Iberian peninsula and France, requiring the
freight transfer across the border between France and Spain
the maximum length of the trains limited to 500 m in Portugal, 550 to 600m in Spain
and 750 m in France
the maximum grades reaching 18‰ and more in Spain and Portugal requiring
additional traction south of Bayonne, depending on the gross load hauled
the sections with single-track lines limiting the available capacity, and/or conditioning
timetabling
the sections with non electrified lines requiring, when appropriate, the exchange of
the locomotive
the disparity in the signalling systems requiring the exchange of machines and drivers
at borders,
the disparity of the power supply requiring rolling stock with dual voltage, triple
voltage or thermal,
the disparity of maintenance periods or works to be carried out on rail infrastructures
depending on the country (by day, by night, on weekends) with partial or complete
closure of a route.
In terms of exploitation, the duration of freight transfer at the border of Hendaye/Irun is
associated with real-time availability of consignment notes and the capacity of transshipment
sites, a capacity limited to the means of production available (including the length of tracks);
these sites are the following:
- TRANSFESA (rail axle changing, requiring specially a customised management of the
limited stock of the different types of axle on site)
- TECO and HENDAYE MANUTENTION (transshipment of containers)
- COBATRANS (transshipment of light vehicles) without operation to date
Therefore, the ordering of international train paths for freight is closely related to the following
aspects:
- on the line, to the capacity of the sections with a single-track line, to the passage of
certain junction stations on rush hour (Paris, Bordeaux, Madrid, Lisbon, etc.) and to
the eventual reinforcement of traction on certain sections with steep grades,
- at the border of Hendaye/Irun, to the capacity of freight transshipment sites and to the
operations of recomposition of the train length (2 UIC trains = 3 Iberian trains),
- to borders, to the minimum duration of machine and/or driving changes in order to
address the gauge conversion, the signalling system and/or electrification.
Different points of Corridor 4 can constitute “train bottlenecks” depending on:
the configuration of existing infrastructures,
the time of day (specially on passenger movement during rush hours)
the type and period of servicing and maintenance of rail infrastructures (eventually
requiring partial or complete halt of traffic)
There is an ongoing close analysis in order to specify the nature of the action programme to
be implemented, and thus eliminate these “rail bottlenecks” in the long term.

2.5 PROGRAMME OF MEASURES FOR THE CREATION OF THE CORRIDOR
According to the directives of Regulation 913/2010, the necessary measures taken for the
creation of the corridor are at several levels:
- at the level of European institutions,
- at the level of national regulation bodies,
- at the level of infrastructure managers,
- at the level of railway undertakings and terminal managers.
The following chart illustrates the missions allocated to each of these bodies in the context of
implementation of the corridor.

The European Commission takes action at several levels for the implementation of
Regulation 913/2010 by means of DG MOVE (Directorate-General for Mobility and
Transport) and of the TEN-T EA (Trans-European Transport Network Executive Agency). It
organises regular meetings with the representatives of the Member States and the
infrastructure managers in order to assess the progress of the implementation of European
freight corridors: meetings including those of SERAC (Single European Railway Area
Committee) and the SERAC Working Group on Rail Freight Corridors.
At national level, an Executive Board of Corridor 4 has been established between the
Ministries of Transport of France (DGITM), Spain (DGF) and Portugal (DGAE) in order to
supervise the implementation of Corridor 4; regular meetings are held between the
representatives of the Ministries involved: during these meetings issues accountable to
Member States and the advances of the management board of the corridor regarding the
progress of the implementation of the corridor are addressed.

In terms of Infrastructure Managers, a Management Board of Corridor 4 has been
implemented; it takes the legal form of a new EEIG designated “European Economic Interest
Grouping for Rail Freight Corridor No. 4” or “EEIG CFM4” established on 25 March 2013
between the rail infrastructure managers in France (RFF), Spain (ADIF) and Portugal
(REFER). The constitutive general assembly of this new EEIG, held on 16 April 2013 in
Lisbon, has appointed its members as provided for in the statutes.
The flow chart of EEIG CFM4 is shown below.
The regulatory bodies of Corridor 4 referred to Article 30 of Directive 2001/14/EC shall
cooperate in monitoring the competition in the rail freight corridor. In particular, they shall
ensure non-discriminatory access to the corridor and shall be the appeal bodies provided for
under Article 30(2) of that Directive. They shall exchange the necessary information obtained
from infrastructure managers and other relevant parties, according to the cooperation
agreement signed by themselves on the 2nd of October 2013 (see appendix 6).
In accordance with the obligations conferred upon it by Regulation 913/2010, the
Management Board of Corridor 4 invited the following parties to participate in Advisory
Groups, namely:
- on the one hand, the Railway Undertakings involved on Corridor 4,
- on the other, the Terminal Managers and others Logistic Players located at Corridor 4.
Each of these Advisory Groups may issue an opinion on all proposals of the Management
Board of Corridor 4 which has direct consequences on all interested companies, particularly
on investments and terminal management. It may also issue opinions on its own initiative.
The Management Board shall take any of these opinions into account.
The following tables bring together all the major stakeholders which were invited by the
Management Board of Corridor 4 to participate in these Advisory Groups:

CHAPTER 3
3.1
SINTESIS OF THE TRANSPORT MARKET STUDY
Overview
Corridor No. 4 of the European rail freight network extends over 3 countries. After crossing
Lisbon and the major ports of the Portuguese western coast, it continues along the regions of
western Spain, over Madrid, and then crosses the Pyrenees and moves up the Atlantic coast
until it reaches Paris, where it is divided in two branches, one which descends towards the
west along the Seine, until reaching the English Channel, the other headed for the east
where it connects to corridor No. 2 (Lyon-Antwerpen) in Metz.
The market and traffic research on this Corridor has been carried out in several steps.
First of all, a diagnostic report on the current situation. Therefore, the countries and regions
crossed by the corridor have been subject to an analysis of economic indicators and of the
overall situation of transport. Then a origin-destination matrix was drawn up to describe the
existing flows in 2010.
Afterwards, based on this matrix, the matrix of transport demand in 2010, projections were
developed based on econometric models (differentiating countries and freight types) enabling
the prediction of transport demand in the short, medium and long term (respectively 2020,
2030 and 2050). In terms of supply, the planned projects of transport infrastructures on the
different horizons have been studied and modelled in order to take into account their impact
on traffic projections.
To assess the determinants of the choice of mode of transport, stated preference surveys
have been conducted on the players of freight transport (shippers or forwarders). An
econometric model has been drawn up based on their results, enabling the assessment of
the weight of the different determinants (price, duration, reliability...).
Finally, future traffic of the different modes of transport has been modelled and assigned to
transport networks – as envisaged by the different forecast horizons – taking into account all
the elements previously mentioned (context, demand, supply and determinants of mode
choice).
Last but not least, two analyses were carried out.
Firstly, a study of the interest value of a stretch of Corridor No. 4 towards the east in order to
offer an interconnection with Corridor No. 1, an important European north-south corridor
which extends from northern Italy to Benelux.
Secondly, an analysis called SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) of the
rail transport on the space covered by Corridor 4.

Diagnosis
3.2.1
Socio-economic background
The first stage of the analysis consisted of the observation of the main macroeconomic and
transport data of the 3 countries involved, as well as, on a smaller scale, the regions which
the corridor crosses. Here is a brief summary at the scale of the countries:

The following two graphics explain the recent evolution of rail transport in the past few years:
the modal share of rail transport across the country,
the volume flow reported in billion tons.km travelled.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
33
We can see a real discrepancy between the modal share of rail transport in France and that
of the two countries of the Iberian Peninsula, which are affected by a sort of rail isolation
inherent to the situation of their networks. This situation has historically fostered road
transport in these two countries.
This is also reflected in their tonnage; the differences observed are not simply explained by
different levels of GDP: over 17 kg.km are carried by rail per each euro of the GDP in France,
while this number is under 14 in Portugal and just over 9 in Spain.
Regarding the evolution of these variables, it is possible to single out two elements.
On the one hand, an evolution which tends to be unfavourable in terms of the modal share of
rail transport, a situation commonly found on an European level except in the countries
showing a high voluntarism regarding this subject, and on the other, a cyclical aggravation
connected to the economic crisis which has particularly affected traffic between 2008 and
2009.
It should be noted that, for reasons associated with the gathering of data from train
operators, these figures, provided by Eurostat, could overestimate the decrease observed in
the period of 2008-2010.
3.2.2
Potential global demand of transport
The starting point of modelling has been the elaboration of a matrix of freight flow for each
origin-destination pair (at the NUTS3 level in the countries directly involved).
These flows were distinguished by means of transport. Moreover, the flow called rail-road
has been taken into account. It consists of a situation in which goods are routed by train from
the countries on the north of the Pyrenees until the border between France and Spain, where
they are loaded on trucks to complete their route until a destination point in the Iberian
peninsula is reached (and the other way round). This can be explained by the lack of railway
interoperability. Flows have also been differentiated by freight category (13 categories
considered).
The following summary table presents the analysis of the flow of goods in 2010 (stated in
thousands of tons per year) between the main countries studied (in rows we find the origins
of traffic and in columns the destination):
Belgium
Switzerland
Germany
Spain
France
Italy
The
Netherl.
Portugal
UK
Belgium
Switzerland
Germany
Spain
France
Italy
The Netherl.
Portugal
UK
It is important to keep in mind when reading this table that, apart from the flow concerning
the Iberian Peninsula, only the flows potentially crossing at least part of the route of the
Corridor 4 are recorded. Therefore, it is natural that the three countries concerned by the
Corridor 4 are those with the highest tonnage.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
34
Similarly, it is logical to find the countries closest to the Corridor 4 among the major trading
partners, particularly Germany and Benelux. The selection of the origins-destinations
potentially using the Corridor 4 has been performed, at this stage of the study, at a broad
base in order to not loose traffic a priori. Part of the flow ceased to be taken into account
when the analysis revealed it was not relevant in terms of modelling.
Lastly, three types of flow stood out, corresponding to three different sources of information
available for 2010:
- Portugal-Europe: it regards total flow between Portugal and its European partners
(including Spain). These flows have been established based on OTEP's survey,
carried out at the border, and based on the information provided by railway operators.
- Spain-Europe: it regards total flow between Spain and its European partners, apart
from Portugal. These flows have been established based on the Transit survey (CAFT
survey).
- The remaining flows of the corridor: it regards the total flow between the origindestination pairs which use at least part of the corridor (beyond the flow with the
Iberian Peninsula). These flows were calculated thanks to the information from the
freight database Etis+ from the European Commission.
The selection of relevant origin-destination pairs (and, therefore, comprehensive zoning
taken into account for distant flows) for the Corridor 4 has been carried out based on an
analysis per itinerary of European road flow as described by Etis+ database. By modelling
the routes of the freight flow, and by designating “select links” (control section), it was
possible to isolate flows performing part of their route on the Corridor 4.
The following maps represent certain analyses per itinerary performed in the context of the
elaboration of the list of relevant origin-destination pairs. Violet sections represent the section
where the select link was placed. Therefore, any freight flow between an origin and a
destination crossing this select link has been included in the list of origin-destination pairs.

It may be noted that a fifth part of the flows considered is a flow of Portugal-Europe type and
just over half of Spain-Europe type. The remaining nearly 30% are flows that cross the
northern region of the Corridor 4. This matrix encompasses largely all flows potentially
interesting of the study, particularly the cluster of flows of the Mediterranean corridor.
The rail flows were, whenever that was possible from a data availability point of view,
differentiated into conventional flow (or rail-rail) and flow of combined transport. This means
of transport, which is based on the use of containers able of being easily transferred from
one means of transport to another, has been growing steadily, a growth which should
continue over the next decades.
3.3 Scenarios and projections
3.3.1
Projection of global demand
To predict future traffic on the Corridor 4, two different methods were used:
- Regarding the flows which regard Spain and Portugal, a series of econometric
models, drawn up with basis on the evolutions observed over the last decades, were
carried out for each pair of countries and each category of goods (13 categories
considered). These models are based on the evolution of the GDP of Spain and
Portugal, as well as those of their commercial partners.
- Regarding the flows of other origin-destination pairs, the projected evolution of flows
is calculated with basis, on the one hand, on the projected GDP and, on the other, on
the elasticity observed in the volume of imports and exports of the country for the
growth of its own GDP. This elasticity has been calculated within the context of the
World Transport Report 2012/2013 of Progtrans.
As previously mentioned, independently of the method used, the projected growths of the
GDP are at the heart of these projections. The rates of future growth used within the context
of this study have been directly extracted from the Ageing Report 2012, a document
produced by the European Commission which performed GDP projections for the period
2012-2060 taking into account several predicted evolutions of socio-economic data.
The following table presents the summary of the flows of goods for 2030 in the scenario
named “business as usual” (without taking into account the evolution of transport offer):

In this scenario, the structures vary slightly, whether it regards the share of the different
modes in the total traffic, the structure of the different types of flow or the structure of the
categories of goods which is not represented herein.
3.3.2
Projection of the future transport offer
The two major issues for the present study, in terms of infrastructures, are, on the one hand,
provision of an UIC track gauge to the Spanish and Portuguese railways which have at
present a gauge (designated “Iberian”) different from the one used by the other European
countries (gauge designated “UIC”). The other major issue is the implementation or
extension of the services of rail motorways.
The sizing of the gauge of Spanish and Portuguese railway networks according to UIC gauge
requires heavy and expensive works, and thus takes time to complete. By contrast, they will
enable the realisation of a truly qualitative increase in terms of cross-border traffic. In fact, the
current situation requires long and expensive transhipments when crossing the FrenchSpanish border.
These infrastructural works should spread out over the next decades. Regarding the Atlantic
corridor, the one that is relevant in this case, the line that stretches from French border to
Valladolid should be adapted to the UIC gauge starting 2020 (and from French border to
Cartagena for the Mediterranean corridor). By 2030, an important part of the Spanish and
Portuguese networks should have been subject to works of implementation of UIC gauge (cf.
maps of the following page).
The rail motorways are a transport system enabling the carriage of heavy vehicles
(unaccompanied) on adapted trains. Each train can, therefore, move up to forty heavy
vehicles over long distances without producing the multiple negative externalities inherent to
road transport.
One of these rail motorways is already in operation between Bettembourg (in Luxembourg)
and Perpignan, near the French-Spanish border. Its extension to Barcelona is expected to be
carried out by 2020. Beyond this time frame, a new rail motorway (Ecofret) will be created on
the Atlantic corridor, offering a service between Vitoria and Lille. By 2030, these two lines
would offer many other new services. Regarding the rail motorway of the Atlantic corridor, the
services Madrid-Lille, Vitoria-Paris and Madrid-Paris would be proposed (in addition to the
service Vitoria-Lille). Regarding the rail motorway of the Mediterranean corridor, the new
services Barcelona-Lyon, Valencia-Bettembourg and Valencia-Lyon would be available.
Finally, it is important to mention that the forecasts provided subsequently do not take into
account the reports of traffic from European ports. In fact, although several Iberian ports have
been the subject of important development projects, the lack of homogeneity of the forecasts
of traffic reports (from other European ports) produced in the context of the different projects
has made it difficult and hazardous to take this phenomenon into account.

3.4
Analysis of the determinants of the modal choice
The determining factors of the modal choice are calculated from an econometric analysis
based on stated preference surveys. These surveys are aimed at providing a qualitative and
quantitative analysis of the main factors motivating the choice between the different modes of
freight transport, thus enabling a better determination of the reactions of the market to the
modifications in the supply conditions.
A preliminary analysis of the main factors of choice of the mode and service of freight
transport enabled the identification of 6 characteristics: travelling time (from door to door),
total cost, reliability, safety, frequency, and number of transhipments.
In total, 74 companies were interviewed in the context of these surveys. This enabled the
analysis of 90 international usual travels and the performance of 810 exercises of stated
preferences.
As a result of this analysis, a functions of usefulness was built, which characterize the
willingness to pay and the trade-offs between the different characteristics studied. The results
of the model presented below only include the segmentations statistically relevant and which
have resulted in a better adjustment of the model.
The results confirm that the total price of the
route corresponds to an important proportion
of the utility of an alternative. Nevertheless, in
a competitive market environment, the
travelling time and reliability can have a
significant impact on the determination of
market shares.

The analysis carried out enabled the
distinction of different values of time for the
groups of goods of the NST1 type (food
products) and NST6 type (construction
materials) with a commercial value higher than
3000€/ton. These groups of goods have
values of time significantly higher than others.
In terms of averages, the players of the market are willing to pay 0.33 Euros per ton for each
hour of travel or less. The following table sums up the results of the estimation of the value of
time saved on the different segments of goods:

Utility functions were adjusted subsequently, thanks to the inclusion of modal constants and
scaling factors for the correct calibration of the existing market shares, thus determining the
model of modal choice to be used.

3.5
Traffic forecasts
The following figures only take into account the flow directly covered by Corridor 4
(particularly trans-Pyrenees flows of the Mediterranean corridor were not included).
Therefore, all the flows on this Corridor 4 represented 196 Mt in 2010, in which 113 Mt
corresponded to inland traffic. These traffics can be separated into three distinct markets:
- The “south” flows are the transport flows between Spain and Portugal (33 Mt
including 30 inland Mt)
- The “trans-Pyrenean” flows, established between the countries of the Iberian
Peninsula and their partners (107 Mt including 53 inland Mt)
- The “north” flows are the flows that go along the corridor and are established between
France and its partners, apart from Portugal and Spain (56 Mt including 30 inland MT)
Traffic as a whole can be then subdivided into three types of relations:
- Internal traffic (7% of rail flows in 2010) is any flow whose origin and destination lie on
the Corridor 4. By definition, all the flows are based on relations between France,
Portugal and Spain. The flows of the “north” market cannot be taken into account
given that the two northern extremities of the corridor are located in France, which
means that we do not observe international traffic.
- Trade traffic (59% of flows) corresponds to all flows with one bound (origin or
destination) inside the Corridor 4 and the other one outside. It consists of the major
part of the flows taken to account herein.
- Transit traffic (34% of the flows) encompasses all flows susceptible of crossing the
Corridor 4 without including the origin or destination therein (e.g. a route BrusselsParis-Metz-Basel)

relation, in 2010 and with different prediction horizons:

We can observe that there is a significant growth of rail traffic between 2010 and 2020,
particularly regarding cross-border flows, which is due to the combined effect of the
adaptation to the UIC gauge of the entire line that stretches from the French border to
Valladolid and the opening of the first Atlantic service of rail motorway. The rail mode share
(including the flow of atlantic motorway) reaches 11.2% (against 6.6% in 2010).
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
43
The adaptation to the UIC gauge of a large number of lines in the Iberian Peninsula as a
whole and the creation of additional services on the Atlantic rail motorway (until reaching
Madrid), considered on the horizon of 2030, still produces a significant growth (14% of modal
share in 2030).
As we can see, the "trans-Pyrenean” flows present in 2010 a very weak modal share of the
rail mode (with nearly 4% of inland flows). This can be partly explained by the differences in
rail gauge. The adaptation to UIC gauge of a growing number of sections of the Iberian rail
network and the increase in the maximum extension of freight trains up to 750 m between
2010 and 2030 will result in the multiplication by 3.5 of the tonnage transported during this
period (apart from rail motorways).
The “south” flows are also affected by this lack of interoperability which favoured the road
transport that we observe presently (modal share inferior to 3% for the rail transport).
The evolution of rail traffic follows a steady rhythm with the triplication of tonnages between
2010 and 2030.
Conversely, the “north” flows are characterised by a modal share closer to the average
observed in the European Union as a whole (17% in 2010). The increase of tonnages and of
rail modal share is, therefore, more moderate than in the other two markets.
Moreover, it is important to note that the internal flows on Corridor 4 will merely
represent 11% of global international flows going through Corridor 4. For example,
some major rail flows, such as the flows between the Iberian Peninsula and Germany are
outside the corridor, in the current context of definition of Corridor 4.

Extension of corridor 4 to Germany
3.6.1
Possible connecting points
In the transport market study, the possible extension of the Corridor 4 to Germany was
analised. Furthermore, the corridor equivalent to Corridor 4, that which in the future TransEuropean Transport Network (TEN-T) is marked “Atlantic corridor”, also known as LisboaStrasbourg/Mannheim (see its delineation in yellow on the map below), has two branches,
one until Strasbourg and the other until Manheim.
In such an eventuality, the closest corridor and most interesting to connect would be Corridor
1 (Genoa-Rotterdam/Antwerpen). It is therefore a connection to the most used European
freight corridor and would open the door to intermodal rail/river on the Rhine which is
particularly well equipped in terms of infrastructures to ensure these operations. Moreover, it
is important to note that this connection, if it existed, would turn Corridor 4 into the only
corridor to cross the French-German border.
Extract from the project of redefinition of the TEN-T (proposal of the Commission) to the left
and depiction of the corridors of the European freight rail network to the right:
Two connection points were, therefore, analysed for the purpose of this appraisal:
- A branch stretching from Metz to Mannheim/Ludwigshafen via Sarre. This solution
has the advantage of stretching Corridor 4 until one of the first major German
terminals and to the second most important marshalling yard in Germany (over 300
departures per week en route to Germany and beyond). On the other hand, this
connection point could suffer from a relatively lack of capacity (due to the importance
of traffics).
- A branch which would stretch until reaching the border at the level of
Strasbourg/Offenburg. This solution has the advantage of offering a large capacity,
but, on the other hand, it has few regular connections in operation at present (about
fifteen departures per week currently).
3.6.2
Rail flows between Germany and the other countries of the corridor
In the context of this analysis of a connection of Corridor 4, the existing and planned
transport flows between Germany and the three countries crossed by the Corridor were
differentiated in a more precise manner. The tables below summarise the rail flows on these
relations.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
45
The two graphics below show the evolution of the rail flows between Germany and the
countries of Corridor 4. The traffic in thousands of tons is represented to the left and the
same flow reduced to the number of trains is represented to the right (taking into account
filling and empty train rates). The designation “Rail” regards conventional rail flows as a
whole and combined transport, the designation “RM” relates to the flows regarding rail
motorways.
*Flow including rail/road mode
The flows considered as related to rail motorways, considering that no service serves
Germany directly, are flows ensured by another mode of transport until/from the loading dock
of the rail motorways.
These figures are based on wide perimeters (at the scale of the country), but they merely
take into account the flows directly concerning the Atlantic corridor. Now, we can observe that
there is already a significant potential in 2010: about two weekly return services for Portugal
and around twenty in the case of Spain. In terms of tonnages, we can forecast that the
transported flows will be multiplied by a factor between 2 and 4 on the period 2010-2030.
Moreover, it is important to note that it only regards rail flows with Germany, road flows are
extremely important, representing in the case of France nearly 13.4 Mt of goods trade per
year, which indicates a weak rail modal share (less than 5% on the flows considered).
3.7
Analysis SWOT
An analysis SWOT is the study of a given situation (strenghts and weaknesses) and possible
ways of evolution of this situation (opportunities and threats). It is a way of presenting the
main elements of this analysis applied to the railroad mode in the zone covered by the
Corridor 4.
Strengths:
- The possibility of transporting important volumes on long distances allowing potentially
reduced costs
- The mobilization of public authorities and infrastructure managers and their organization in
common structures
- The service done by the corridor for important production sites and consumption
- Rail transport reduced environmental impact.
Weaknesses:
- High capital costs, at the same time for infrastructures and rolling stocks
- A lack of flexibility of the periods of transport
- An absence of priority for the freight trains on the rail network
- Lesser costs, at the moment, for the road and maritime modes of transport
- A direct competition of the maritime mode on the corridor and the efficient range of services
of transport
- A lack of confidence of the actors of the transport in the rail mode
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
46
Opportunities:
- The liberalization of the market which can allow an increase of the competitiveness of the
offered services and a price drop for the rail transport
- The simplification of the procedures of reservation of paths and the realization of new tools
with benefit from new technologies
- A reduction in the competitiveness of the road mode in relation with the increase of the
energy costs and creation of new taxes
- The development of the iberian ports in the hinterland of the Corridor 4 which, in support on
the optimization of the rail network, can become a competitive alternative of the Northern
ports of Europe and Mediterranean, in particular for the transcontinental traffics
Threats:
- The economic situation and the uncertainty which causes its impact on the countries of the
Corridor 4,
- The relocation of the centers of consumption and production towards other countries of
Europe,
- The development of the sea transport (cheaper in terms of investments) and services which
develop themselves in this frame (maritime highways)

CHAPTER 4
LIST OF MEASURES
The EEIG CFM4 has an organisational structure which responds to the terms of Regulation
913/2010 (from Articles 12 to 19).
The management of activities of Corridor 4 depends on the EEIG CFM4 and on the role that
each infrastructure manager (IM) plays in a coordinated manner. For each article mentioned
(12 to 19) is presented below a summary of the actions established.
4.1 COORDINATION OF INFRASTRUCTURAL WORKS
In order to ensure the coherence and continuity of the available infrastructural capacity
along the freight corridor, all rail infrastructural and equipment works that might restraint
the capacity available on corridor 4 will be coordinated at the level of the freight corridor
and will be subject to an up-to-date publication.
In this document, the term “works” describes the needs of IM for all activities reducing the
capacity of their infrastructure (exp: maintenance, repair, renewal, improvement,
construction works).
The coordination of works should enable the consideration of capacity limits in terms of
the needs of infrastructure managers and needs from a market point of view by
rationalising and optimising the serious impact and duration of the reduction of capacity
of infrastructure managers.
In the following table it is showed the general schedule for this coordination of
infrastructural works.

of the infrastructure managers of Corridor 4. The infrastructure managers may decide to
obtain information on these updates at any moment (ex.: per quarter, monthly and at any
moment in case of occurrence of modifications).

4.2 ONE-STOP SHOP
The one-stop shop (OSS) on Corridor 4 is at the disposal of applicants in order to
coordinate the process of allocation of capacity, facilitate the provision of basic
information on traffic management and facilitate the provision of information on the use of
the freight corridor.
Corridor 4 has established a Representative OSS, in which ADIF acts on behalf of the
three IM. Corridor 4 OSS is placed in Madrid and is supported by a coordinating IT-tool
(Path Coordination System).

By mail: [email protected]
The main functions of the one-stop shop of Corridor 4 will be the following:
• Provide information on:
o Access to the infrastructures of the Corridor
o The conditions of access to the terminals of the Corridor
o The procedures of allocation of capacity on the Corridor
o Infrastructure charging schemes on the sections of the Corridor
o Information for access to the reference guide of each IM concerned for the
Corridor
o The procedures of management of traffic of IM of the Corridor, including
procedures in case of disturbances
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
49
• Coordinate the construction of prearranged train paths in collaboration with the IM of
the Corridor
• Allocate the capacity of the prearranged and reserve train paths
• Establish a record of the demands of capacity on the corridor
• Establish and maintain processes of communication with IM and the terminals of the
Corridor
• Publish the programme of the works that might limit the available capacity of the
freight Corridor
• Ensure the monitoring of the use of the allocated prearranged train paths
In this sense, the experts of the one-stop shop of Corridor 4 have drawn up the catalogue
2014 of prearranged international train paths. Its summary is presented in appendix 4 of
this Implementation Plan: catalogue of the prearranged train paths published since
15.01.2013 on the website of Rail Net Europe (corridor C06 Atlantic part).
A detailed description of the construction of prearranged paths and the allocation of
international capacity will be included in the Corridor Information Document. A summary of
these processes is described below:
Construction, delivery and publication of PaPs:
With the following inputs:
Results of the Transport Market Study (TMS)
Previous timetables information as request for PaPs, other international requests, etc.
Capacity restrictions due to IMs’ own requirements (works, commuters peak hours,
etc).
Framework agreements between IM and RU.
Other kinds of traffic (as passenger traffic, national traffic, etc.)
The involved IM coordinated by the C-OSS will construct the prearranged paths for the
Corridor catalogue.
Each IM is responsible for the PaPs production in its country. The C-OSS will support and
monitor the production and the coordination in the borders of the PaPs.
C-OSS will also support the coordination of the PaPs in the connecting points with other
Corridors (RFC-2 and RFC-6).
The publication of PaPs will be done by the C-OSS via PCS in X-11.
Prearranged paths application phase:
Between X-11 and X-8 the PaPs shall be published and available so that Applicants can
submit applications for the annual timetable.
C-OSS tasks in this phase will be to:
Keep a register of PaPs requested by applicants
Display PaPs available for Corridor 4
Receive the paths request for Corridor 4
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
50
Allocation phase for the annual timetable:
Pre-booking phase by C-OSS.
The tasks of the C-OSS in this phase are described below:
The C-OSS shall keep a register of all activities performed by the C-OSS concerning
the allocation of infrastructure capacity, and keep it available for Regulatory Bodies,
Ministries and Applicants.
The C-OSS shall ensure the update of the register and manage access to it for the
above-mentioned parties. The content of the register will only be communicated to these
interested parties on request.
The C-OSS will decide on the allocation of PaPs requests and communicate the result to
the Applicant through PCS.
In case of conflicting PaPs requests, the Corridor OSS shall base its decisions:
according to Articles 45 and 46 of Directive 2012/34/EU and
applying the Corridor 4 priority rules defined in the Corridor Information Document
The C-OSS will forward the application to the competent IM if the Applicant which didn´t
obtain the PaP requested does not accept the alternative PaPs or no other PaPs fit with
the request.
Construction phase
C-OSS will prepare answers to and from IM, C-OSS of others corridors and Applicants
according to the path requests placed on time (X-8), including both feeder and outflow
paths as well as sections of PaPs and taylor made solutions requested to IM.
The concerned IM will deliver to the C-OSS their results concerning feeder / outflow path,
taylor made paths construction and possible PaPs adaptations for fiting. Then the C-OSS
will communicate the draft offer to the Applicants.
Observations from Applicants
Applicants will check the draft offer and make their remarks. Then Applicants will forward
their final decision to the C-OSS.
Post processing and final allocation for annual Timetable
The C-OSS is responsible for bringing the final offer and allocation of PaPs to the
Applicant, based on the following information given by IM:
Fullfill answer to the request
Partial offer agreed with customer
Different offer agreed with customer
No offer
Information on access to terminals.
In case of complaints regarding the allocation of PaPs (e.g. due to a decision based on
the priority rules for allocation), the Applicants may address the respective regulatory
body.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
51
Application and Allocation phase for late path requests:
According to the PaPs remaining after the allocation of the PaPs requested before X-8,
the C-OSS will receive and allocate late path requests (requests placed beyween X-7.5
and X-2).
The C-OSS is responsible for their allocation based on the RNE process for late path
requests management following the principle “first come - first served”.
If the late path request cannot match with PaPs offer, if there is no other/suitable
alternative PaP or if a flexible approach is needed, the C-OSS forwards the request to the
competent IM. The involved IM will deliver their results to the C-OSS; in the end the COSS will communicate the final offer to the Applicant.
Answers to late path requests will be offered after the final answers for path requests
submitted before the 2nd Monday in April (X-4). The last possible date for submitting path
offers to applicants for late path requests is one month before the start of the next
Timetable (X-1).
Application and Allocation phase for ad-hoc path request:
According to Article 14.5 of the Regulation, and taking into account the PaPs allocated at
X-4, the existing traffic and IMs specific situation, the MB will define a reserve capacity
based on prearranged paths in order to satisfy the ad-hoc path requests placed by the
Applicants between X-2 until X+12 for international freight trains on the Corridor.
The reserve capacity will be displayed at X-2 in PCS and protected from any modification
by the IMs.
In this phase (X-2 – X+12), the C-OSS takes the allocation decision for reserve capacity
requests according to the rule “first come – first served”.
In case of applications including feeder/outflow paths, tailor made solutions and/or
terminal slots, the C-OSS will forward the request to the concerned national IMs and
ensure a consistent path construction between the feeder and the Corridor-related path
section.
The C-OSS won’t answer to any request of PaPs in reserve capacity placed 30 days
before the running day. Requests with shorter time limit should be addressed to the
national IM directly.
Evaluation phase
The C-OSS will provide some inputs for evaluating the Corridor’s performance regarding
the use of PaPs and their allocation. It will serve also as inputs for the revision of the prearranged path offer for the next available annual timetable and for the report to be
published in accordance with Art. 19 (2) in Regulation 913/2010.
4.3 FRAMEWORK FOR CAPACITY ALLOCATION
The framework for the allocation of capacity of Corridor 4 was approved by the Executive
Board. This document is presented in appendix 1 to this Implementation Plan.
The Corridor Information Document describes in detail the procedures of allocation of
capacity in accordance with the abovementioned framework.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
52
The EEIG CFM4 will review this document annually with the Executive Board in order to
obtain the best potential of the freight corridor.
4.4 AUTHORIZED APPLICANTS
The EEIG CFM4 accepts taking into account non-railway undertakings among applicants.
Therefore, the EEIG CFM4 fully adopts the definition of “applicant” mentioned in the
Directive 2012/34/EU as:
every rail company or
every international grouping of railway undertakings or
other persons or legal entities, such as competent authorities under Regulation (EC)
No 1370/2007 and shippers, freight forwarders and combined transport operators,
with a public-service or commercial interest in procuring infrastructure capacity.
Those candidates who meet the conditions set in the network of each IM involved in
Corridor 4 may apply prearranged paths in the same conditions than the RU.
To use the prearranged paths awarded, the candidate is required to provide to the IM
and/or OSS of the Corridor 4 the name of the railway(s) undertaking(s) which will held the
traction at least 5 working days before the train running.
The RU designated to perform traction will execute all contracts with individual IM as
necessary according to the regulations of each of the affected networks.
For allocating capacity of a prearranged path by the OSS corridor, it won’t be necessary to
know the railway company that provides traction. However, the failure of communication
of this information to the IM and/or OSS of the Corridor 4 within the prescribed period will
be a reason for the removal of the capacity allocated
4.5 TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
Traffic monitoring will be ensured by the IM of Corridor 4 aimed at the adaptation of the
effective circulation of trains to the allocated capacities.
In terms of rail traffic management, RU will be informed of the state of ongoing traffic
according to the norms of circulation and traffic of the network.
Criteria for traffic control.
Traffic monitoring will be based on transparent and non-discriminatory principles, bearing
in mind that the primordial purpose is ensuring punctuality in accordance with the
allocated capacity.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
53
The IM of Corridor 4 might use, when they find it appropriate, the following criteria for
traffic regulation:
- Preference of trains which obtained a capacity over those which did not reserve a
capacity.
- Preference of trains circulating in their paths over those which circulate with a delay,
aimed at minimising the increase of delays.
- Preference in case of disturbance of the rail traffic due to technical problems, accidents
or other incidents. In this case, necessary measures will be adopted in order to restore a
normal situation as soon as possible.
The IM of Corridor 4 will review this procedure annually in order to obtain the best
potential of rail freight corridor.
4.6 TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT IN CASE OF DISTURBANCIES
For a proper management of the traffic of Corridor 4, a procedure shall be drawn up
between the IM of Corridor 4 in order to achieve an adequate coordination in the
management of traffic during eventual situations of disturbancies.
The main purpose of this procedure is to define appropriate forms and means of
communication between the different actors (fundamentally IM and users) who may be
affected by an alteration of circulation conditions in Corridor 4.
The IM of Corridor 4 may draw up a contingency plan which defines alternative
procedures to usual operations aimed at creating an overall action plan which will enable
the coordination and resolution of contingencies which disrupt the normal development of
rail traffic.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
54
In the event of an emergency, and when found absolutely necessary, due to a temporary
interruption of service of the infrastructure, the IM of Corridor 4 may, without prior notice,
suppress, deviate or modify the train paths during the period necessary to the normal
restoration of the system and perform urgently the necessary repairs, as well as inform
as soon as possible RU and authorised applicants on the consequences. In this case,
neither the authorised applicants nor RU may demand a compensation or indemnity
which be dealt with the infrastructures managers according to the rules applied in each
country.
The IM of Corridor 4 may require of RU and their personnel that they use the human and
technical means most suitable to restore traffic within a reasonable period of time. In any
case, both IM of Corridor 4 and RU and authorised applicants will act with joint
coordination and collaboration, in order to ensure service in the most efficient manner.
Whenever a disturbancies in rail traffic due to a technical problem, an accident or other
incident takes place, the infrastructure managers of corridor 4 must adopt all necessary
measures to restore normal operation.
The IM on whose network the incident takes place will inform as soon as possible via
email the infrastructure manager of the country towards which the train(s) affected is(are)
headed, its cause, as well as the expected delay of the train path(s) programmed. When
appropriate, the infrastructure manager who receives the information will transmit it
through the same means to the third infrastructure manager.
The IM on whose network the incident takes place will also be responsible for the
communication as soon as possible of the said information to the rail company(ies) which
operate the affected train(s), as well as the destination terminal(s) of the affected train(s)
or to other terminals that might have been equally affected.
The OSS of Corridor 4 will be involved in all communications performed between IM, in
order that it can daily summarise the received information regarding the disturbance of
traffic recorded and inform its customers about it.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
55
Each of the players concerned (RU, authorised applicants and terminal managers) will
provide an email address to IM in order that these communications are sent to them.
At least the following disturbanciess will be communicated between the IM of the Corridor
4 and RU affected:
- disturbancies with an important impact on rail traffic.
- the cut-off of traffic, including a prevision of resumption.
- the important restriction of capacity, including a prevision of its duration.
In addition, precise information must be provided for every train circulating with a delay
superior to 60 min in a prearranged train path allocated by the OSS of the driver.
The infrastructure managers of Corridor 4 will review this procedure annually in order to
obtain the best potential of freight corridor.

network statement of each IM involved in Corridor 4.
Although the Corridor Information Document is the primary source of information, the
website of EEIG CFM4 (www.corridor4.eu) will include other additional information
inherent to the important possibilities of this communication instrument.
The EEIG CFM4 will also be capable of providing upon demand more detailed
information or any other clarification.
4.8 MONITORING OF THE CORRIDOR’S PERFORMANCE
In order to monitor the proper implementation of the Corridor 4 and the performance of
key activities on the Corridor – comparison between the aims drawn up and the real
operational figures – the EEIG CFM4 will regularly publish a report of the performances
of the corridor. An annual report will also be provided with the main results and
guidelines.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
56
The EEIG CFM4 will publish annually the results of a satisfaction survey carried out to
the main customers of the Corridor 4, providing a detailed image of the satisfactions of
the corridor’s users in quantitative and qualitative terms.
All of these documents are public and will thus be published on the website of EEIG
CFM4. The interested parties will be encouraged to provide their opinion on the content
of these documents and their analysis may be addressed in a new report.
The EEIG CFM4 works in close collaboration with the organizations of other rail freight
corridors in order to promote the harmonization of the performance report with the
satisfaction survey. In addition to this action, the EEIG CFM4 will review annually its
processes in order to achieve the best potential of the Corridor 4.
CHAPTER 5
OBJECTIVE / PERFORMANCE
The general purpose of the EEIG CFM4 is the significant increase of competitiveness of the
rail services of the Corridor 4 against the other means of transport. This means having a
broad understanding and a control of critical factors, particularly regarding traffic capacity and
management, functions clearly attributed to the EEIG CFM4.
The general purpose is to multiply by 3.5 the volume of rail freight which will cross the
borders of Corridor 4 in the next 20 years. According to the results of the Trafic Market
Study, it is anticipated a growth from 7 million tons in 2010 to 24 million tons in 2030.
The EEIG CFM4 has defined 2 strategic objectives that underline the overview for Corridor 4
in terms of production of transport on the rail freight corridor.
Strategic Objectives
a. Number of international prearranged freight paths using the
corridor (n.)
Method: Number of international prearranged paths crossing one or two
borders available at X-11.
2014
2017
23
+40%
55
km/h
+15%
Purpose: Provide a basic production indicator for Corridor 4
b. Average speed of prearranged paths [km/h], excluding freight
transhipment time at the border between France and Spain
Method: AvSpeed = Sum (PaP Length) / Sum (PaP Journey time)
AvSpeed = Average speed of the PaPs
PaPLenght = Complete length of each PaP
PaP Journey time = Journey time of each PaP
Purpose: Provide a basic production indicator for corridor 4. The PaP
were selected as being the most significant commercial
product of Corridor 4.
Two horizons were chosen: 2014 as the first year of effective operational activity and 2017 as
a planned key date for the implementation of new sections of high-speed lines on Corridor 4
which will release more capacity for freight traffic on the existing line.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
57
The accomplishment of these purposes is partially depending on global economic conditions,
as well as on concrete actions performed by the EEIG CFM4 and IM of Corridor 4. The
choice of the 2 abovementioned indicators is aimed at providing a simple and efficient
reading of the performance of the Corridor 4 which depends, in fact, on several factors.
These several factors will be controlled by the EEIG CFM4, but will not correspond to the
purposes published in the Implementation Plan.
With
the
implementation
of
performance monitoring and traffic
management, the EEIG CFM4 will
strive for the control of the vital
aspects of service quality and guide
efficiently its actions for a significant
improvement of competitiveness of
international rail freight.
5.1 PERFORMANCE MONITORING REPORT
The EEIG CFM4 will regularly publish a report of performance monitoring of the Corridor 4
which will present detailed analysis of several key indicators of the 2 strategic purposes
considered as significant for the accomplishment of the purposes of the Corridor, particularly
the following indicators:
Indicators
i.
Annual number of prearranged freight paths (p)
ii.
Annual number of prearranged freight paths.km (pkm)
iii.
Punctuality at different points of measure (on the origin and destination of trains at
best, as well as on border crossing)
iv.
Average speed of trains [km/h], excluding freight transhipment time at the border
between France and Spain.
v.
Number of requests of prearranged paths:
- between X-11 and X-8
- between X-8 and X-2 (late paths requests)
- between X-2 and X+12 (ad hoc paths requests)
vi.
Number of paths allocated by the one-stop shop:
- paths allocated for the annual service
- paths allocated upon late request
- paths allocated upon ad hoc paths requests
vii.
Annual number of paths reserved and not used [n]
viii.
Response time in days to the paths on demand [d]
Other indicators might be included in the Performance Monitoring Report of the Corridor 4,
depending on the analysis of requests expressed by RU or other parties.
These performance indicators will show the Corridor 4 as a whole. Nonetheless, specific
sections of the Corridor will be identified and the indicators will be thus calculated. First of all,
2 market sections will be considered: Portugal/Spain and Spain/France.
The Performance Monitoring Report of the Corridor 4 should include the qualitative analysis
for the situations in which the abnormal evolution of indicators would be proved.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
58
The EEIG CFM4 should promote the compatibility of performances according to the different
sectors of the Corridor 4; the Performance Monitoring Report should include the results of
the different sectors of the Corridor, including the main causes of delays and the
apportionment of responsibilities between parties.
5.2 SATISFACTION SURVEYS
According to article 19 of Regulation 913/2010 (“Quality of service on the freight corridor”),
“the management board shall organise a satisfaction survey of the users of the freight
corridor and shall publish the results of it once a year”.
Therefore, the EEIG CFM4 shall perform an annual survey in order to assess the satisfaction
of the users of Corridor 4, making the results of this survey public.
This survey addresses the main and potential users of Corridor 4, as defined in article 15 of
Regulation 913/2010, and assesses aspects such as:
9 Network of lines and terminals for the Corridor (need to include more lines/terminals)
9 Quality of the information issued by the Corridor
9 Application of the procedures of the Corridor
o Procedures of demand of paths
o Management of traffic and punctuality, operation
o Complaint management
9 Quality of the infrastructure (planning of maintenance, improvements performed)
9 Quality of the paths allocated (travelling period, origin/destination, TBR allocated,
maximum length of the train, gauge...)
9 Quantity of prearranged train paths
9 Services provided in terminals
9 Punctuality in the management of train paths
9 Comparison with the situation prior to the creation of the Corridor
9 Knowledge of the infrastructure charges by country and its comprehensibility, easy
calculation and application.
Taking into account the precedent perimeters, questions will be made, which format should
enable responses simultaneously quantitative (with a range of values) and qualitative,
including the possibility of presenting free text remarks.
A note shall be sent to the Advisory Groups of Railway Undertakings and Terminal Managers,
explaining the objective of this initiative and some basic instructions for a better
understanding and use.
Responses shall be analysed, seeking for each period of realisation of the survey the level of
correlation of this analysis with its strategic and operational purposes, as well as, depending
on the level of results, the possible improvements shall be identified.
Pursuant to this analysis, the EEIG CFM4 shall define the concrete action plans associated
with the strategic purposes of the Corridor 4, channelling towards the improvement of
negative aspects identified by the users of the Corridor.
In general terms, one might say that action plans shall influence the improvement of
competitiveness of rail freight transport on the Corridor 4. Similarly, action plans defined shall
ensure the continuous improvement and the achievement of all the purposes of the Corridor
4.

6.1.2 Spain
The strategic planning of transport infrastructures in Spain is reproduced in the Infrastructure,
Transport and Housing Plan (PITVI 2012-2024), presented by the Ministerio de Fomento to
the Spanish government in September 2012.
The PITVI establishes five major strategic goals as the new framework of planning of
transport infrastructures:
Improve the efficiency and competitiveness of the global transport system by
optimising the use of existing capacities.
Contribute to a balanced economic development, as an instrument for overcoming
the crisis.
Promote a sustainable mobility making its economic and social effects compatible
with the environment.
Reinforce territorial cohesion and the accessibility of all territories of the State through
the transport system.
Favour the functional inclusion of the transport system as a whole from an intermodal
point of view.
The rail mode is the one that shall receive the major part of investments in the period of
implementation of the Plan, almost 39% of the total amount predicted, differentiating rail
investments according to the following perimeters:
new investments on the commuter rail system.
new investments on the conventional network: standard UIC gauge, access to ports,
lay-bys with 750 m, logistic platforms and facilities, renewal of the conventional
network, integration in agglomerations, suppression of level crossings, signalling
system ASFA (digital) and ERTMS, among other investments.
new investments in the high speed network.
accessibility to stations.
Investments of urban integration of rail network
The following tables present the main projects included in the existing planning in Spain
(PITVI), in direct relation to corridor 4 and directed mainly towards the improvement of the
competitiveness of rail freight transport.

6.1.3 Portugal
The development of the Portuguese rail network is framed by national and European policy,
regulation and plans, namely the Strategic Plan for Transport Sector (PET 2011-2015),
approved by the Portuguese government in November 2011, which aims particularly the
promotion of the competitiveness of international rail freight transport.
In preparation of the partnership agreement for the EC funding period 2014-2020, the
Portuguese Government has on-going an extensive and exhaustive evaluation and
prioritization of investments on value added infrastructures, which will result in a national
intersectoral investment plan. In this context, the Portuguese Government has set up an
inclusive working group which has already presented the preliminary proposals that will feed
the investment plan. Presently, the report is under public consultation and it is foreseen its
approval by the Government in a near future.
With a view of a performing network, the set of investments under evaluation comprises the
comprehensive modernization of the entire Portuguese rail network through investments
along the horizons 2020, 2030 and 2050. The main investments connected to maintenance,
renewal and development that are being assessed aims the improvement of network’s
reliability, efficiency and safety by covering the following types of works:
-
Major territorial projects;
Major modernisation projects in the whole country in order to improve the network's
fluidity, accessibility and efficiency.
Since the investment plan is under assessment of the Portuguese Ministry of Transport, it is
presented here the web link to the mencioned preliminary report which comprises the major
railway projects foreseen for the Portuguese network:

6.2 DEPLOYMENT PLAN FOR INTEROPERABLE SYSTEMS
Interoperability is defined by Directive 2008/57/EC, article 2, as "the ability of a rail
system to allow the safe and uninterrupted movement of trains which accomplish the
required levels of performance for these lines". This ability depends on all the regulatory,
technical and operational conditions which must be met in order to satisfy the essential
requirements. Essential requirements means all the conditions set out in Annex III of
Directive 2008/57/EC which must be met by the rail system, the subsystems, and the
interoperability constituents, including interfaces”.
It covers different areas, including safety, signalling system, track gauges, electric systems,
etc., and is subject to the Technical Specifications for Interoperability (TSI) drawn up by the
European Railway Agency (ERA), together with the stakeholders.
Due to the heterogeneity of the characteristics of infrastructures of Corridor 4 set out in
chapter 2, a plan of concerted actions between Member States and IM shall be defined
regarding several aspects of the deployment of interoperable systems:
- the continuity of infrastructures from one country to the other, particularly in terms of
the rail gauge, electrification of the existing network and signalling systems,
- the suppression of some bottlenecks which will ultimately lead to the increase in the
available capacity for international freight traffic all day,
- the development of exploitation systems enabling information supplied in real time on
the situation of international freight traffic, particularly on border points, and on the
precise composition of international trains in real time (length, transported tonnage,
dangerous materials transported, etc.)
- the adequacy between the optimal travel time depending on the sections, the
international transport plan (including driving stages, with reinforcement even change
of traction means) and investments to make as a priority (both on infrastructures and
rolling stock)
The investment plans described in paragraph 6.1 are a good illustration of this variety of
ongoing projects, projects aimed at improving interoperability on Corridor 4, particularly:
- coming on stream of sections of a new line with a UIC gauge fit for freight traffic in
Spain, Portugal and France in the short and medium term,
- the gradual adaptation to the UIC gauge of the main existing axles in Spain and
Portugal in the short and medium term,
- the electrification of existing lines connecting Spain to Portugal in the medium and
long term,
- the gradual entry into service of new high-speed lines in France enabling the
liberation of capacity for freight traffic on the existing line in the short and medium
term,
- the performance of operations of decongestion of certain railway junctions and/or
increase of capacity, particularly in the border point of Hendaye/Irun
- on a timeframe further in the future, perspectives of deployment of an interoperable
signalling system of the ERTMS type, when the majority of the precedent points will
have been solved.
The maps in appendix 5 show the characteristics of rail infrastructures of the Corridor 4 after
the performance of envisaged investment projects in the short and medium term.

6.3 CAPACITY MANAGEMENT
The Implementation Plan defined by the EEIG CFM4 is aimed at improving the efficiency and
management of the capacity of freight trains which can circulate on Corridor 4 through the
investment programme of each country, described in the preceding paragraph, and according
to the main purpose for which they are intended. These investments can be grouped as
follows:
uniformity of length of track with UIC gauge and possibility of circulation for trains with
750 m
suppression of bottlenecks
creation and/or extension of Terminals
improvement of the efficiency of the transport system.
1 Uniformity of the length of track with UIC gauge and possibility of circulation for
trains with 750 m
Spain and Portugal presently have the major section of tracks of their networks with an
Iberian gauge (1,668 mm); within the framework of the Investment Plan of Corridor 4 defined
over different periods, several projects will enable the unification of the track gauge on the
whole Corridor by converting the Iberian gauge into an UIC gauge (1,435 mm) in these two
countries.
In conjunction with these works of uniformity of the track length, necessary investments for
the circulation of trains with a maximum length of 750 m will be included.
This uniformity will be carried out gradually and in a coordinated manner between each
country, establishing as far as practicable itineraries functionally complete and adapted to the
financial resources of each country.
2 Suppression of bottlenecks
In addition to prior investments which will enable in some cases the resolution of bottlenecks
by increasing the overall capacity of the Corridor 4 with the construction and entry into
service of new lines for mixed or high-speed traffic (and consequently the liberation of the
capacity for freight traffic on the conventional network), other investments are planned, aimed
mainly at removing the current or future bottlenecks on the Corridor.
These investments are mainly planned at the level of the major railway junctions of the
corridor, namely: Lisbon, Madrid, the border between Spain and France, Bordeaux and Paris.
3 Creation and/or improvement of Terminals
These investments are aimed at the sectors that create and receive major rail flows, through
the development of new Terminals and the adaptation or improvement of existing Terminals.
In addition to conventional freight traffic and combined transport, Terminals may also offer
new international rail services of the rolling motorway over long-distance routes type.
4 Improvement of the efficiency of the transport system
These investments include those regarding the improvement of the signalling system, as well
as the improvement or development of electrification of the different sections depending on:
- the topography of the different sections of the Corridor,
- the length of journeys of freight trains (depending on speed and the maximum load of
trains)
- the transport plan of RU (including the working time for train drivers).

6.4 REFERENCE TO EUROPEAN UNION CONTRIBUTION
The European Commission’s proposal for the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for
2014-2020 was approved to over 960 billion euros (2011 prices). The Commission has
presented a set of regulations laying down the objectives and management of the EU funds
in the period 2014-2020, covering cohesion policy, maritime affairs and fisheries, research
and innovation, environment and climate, competitiveness.
STRUCTURAL AND COHESION FUNDS
The total proposed budget for the period 2014-2020 will be 351.5 billion euros, including
funding for the new Connecting Europe Facility, which is designed to enhance cross-border
projects in transport, energy and information technology.
France, Spain and Portugal will be affected by the following map:
The budget for the cohesion policy 2014-2020 will be divided as following (2011 prices):

The Cohesion Fund, with an allocated budget of 66.4 billion euros, helps Member States
with a Gross National Income per inhabitant of less than 90 % of the EU-27 average to invest
in TEN-T and the environment.
According to the regulation (EU) 1316/2013 approved on the 11.12.13, the European
Commission proposes to allocate 19.3 billion euros during the 2014-2020 period for the
Connecting Europe Facility, to be complemented by an additional 10 billion euros ring
fenced for related transport investments inside the Cohesion Fund.
This amount comprises:
23.2 billion euros for transport (including 10 billion euros transferred from the
Cohesion Fund),
5.1 billion euros for the energy sector and
1 billion euros for ICT.
The viability of various projects described in the Investment Plan of Corridor 4 will require
European aid in the short, medium and long term, taking into account the limited resources of
their Member States for transport infrastructures.
After the subsequent validation of the Investment Plan of Corridor 4 by its Executive Board,
the EEIG CFM4 will assist IM of the Corridor in terms of request of funds to be addressed,
namely, to the TEN-TEA for the financing of projects connected with the improvement of
competitiveness of rail freight traffic.

APPENDIX 1 / Framework for capacity allocation on Corridor 4
According to the document approved by the Executive Board of Corridor 4, this framework
for capacity allocation on the corridor (“Corridor-Framework”) concerns only the allocation
linked to the prearranged train paths and to the reserve capacity given to the Corridor OneStop-Shop (“C-OSS”) for freight trains, crossing at least one border on a corridor as foreseen
by article 14.4 of the Regulation 913/2010, namely where the allocation of capacity by the COSS is mandatory, according to article 13 of the Regulation.
1. Principles of supply of pre-arranged paths
The capacity provided by the national Infrastructure Managers and Allocation Bodies
(“IMs/ABs”) for the prearranged train paths and the reserve capacity to the C-OSS, is taken
from the national capacity dedicated to freight traffic.
The construction of pre-arranged paths and the definition of reserve capacity, is realised by
the IMs/ABs in accordance with article 14 of the Regulation, by taking into account i.a.:
the Transport Market Study, analysing the demand for international freight traffic on
the Corridor and covering the different types of traffic, in particular passenger traffic;
the request for infrastructure capacity relating to the past and present working
timetables;
the national framework agreements.
Details of supply of the pre-arranged paths are explained in the Corridor Information
Document.
These pre-arranged paths are handed over to the C-OSS for exclusive management at the
latest X-11 and for reserve capacity at least 60 days before the train running (X-2).
The IMs/ABs will aim to include in the supply of pre-arranged train paths, the access and the
paths connecting terminals where feasible.
The pre-arranged paths managed by the C-OSS for the allocation in the yearly timetable and
the reserve capacity are dedicated to the Corridor. Therefore it is essential that the displayed
dedicated capacity is protected against subsequent adaptations by the IMs/ABs critical for
the applicants.
The Management Board shall decide whether and if so to what extent the unused capacity
shall be returned by the C-OSS to the relevant IMs/ABs at X-7.5, according to a principle
published in the corridor information document and taking into account the need for sufficient
reserve capacity of good quality.
2 PRINCIPLES OF ALLOCATION OF THE PREARRANGED TRAIN PATHS AND
RESERVE CAPACITY BY THE C-OSS
The decision on the allocation of pre-arranged train paths and reserve capacity on the freight
corridor is taken by the C-OSS, in accordance with article 13 of the Regulation.
Like the IMs/ABs, the C-OSS has to respect the rules of Directive 2001/14/EC, especially
article 4.3.
The activities within the timetabling processes concerning pre-arranged train paths and
reserve capacity are described in # 3.3.4.
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
71
2.1
General principles related to the establishment of the C-OSS
The C-OSS has to be established under and is governed by the principles of transparency,
non-discrimination, independence, balance and fairness.
The Management Board is responsible for designating or for setting up the C-OSS including
its operating modalities. The implementation plan, which will be part of the Corridor
Information Document to be published by the Management Board according to article 18 of
the Regulation, will describe the competences, the form of organisation, the access rights,
the liability vis-à-vis applicants and the mode of functioning of the C-OSS and its conditions
of use.
2.2
Principles of transparency and non-discrimination
In addition to the Corridor Information Document, once adopted, the IMs/ABs will publish the
functioning and set-up of the C-OSS in their network statements. They will also mention the
Corridor Information Document in their own network statements.
In accordance with article 13 of the Regulation, any application of pre-arranged paths and
reserve capacity for corridor infrastructure capacity, crossing at least one border on a
corridor, from a railway undertaking or authorised applicant will be conducted (requests
handling, coordinating with IMs/ABs, monitoring, deciding and answering) by the C-OSS.
Each application should be registered by the C-OSS and be subject to an appropriate
response.
After receipt of all path requests for prearranged paths at X-8 (regular deadline for submitting
path requests for the annual timetable) the C-OSS will decide on the allocation of prearranged paths without delay until X-7.5 and mark the allocation in the path register
accordingly.
According to article 13.3 and 13.4 of the Regulation, in the same way it is requested that the
C-OSS inform the competent IMs/ABs on its received applications and the decisions taken
on them without delay. It is also requested that for any application which cannot be met, the
C-OSS shall forward the application for infrastructure capacity without any delay to the
competent IMs/ABs, which shall take a decision on that application and communicate this
decision to the C-OSS for further processing. This procedure allows a follow-up on
applications for international rail freight paths on the corridor that the C-OSS could receive.
2.3
Principles of fairness and independence
The C-OSS respects the duties of confidentiality regarding the applications received.
In the context of the corridor, and consequently from a view point of international
cooperation, the experts of the C-OSS staff are, within their mandate, to work independently
from their IMs’/ABs’ tasks and they are ensuring allocation decisions for pre-arranged paths
and reserve capacity on a corridor level. However, the C-OSS experts may work with the
IMs/ABs for the purpose of coordinating the allocation of corridor paths with the allocation of
feeder/outflow national paths.
2.4
Principles of cooperation and balance
The IMs/ABs will coordinate and pool their pre-arranged corridor train paths into the prearranged path catalogue of the C-OSS in order to take into account the needs of the market,
expressed through i.a. the Transport Market Study. The Management Board will inform the
Executive Board on an annual basis on the quantitative and qualitative development of
corridor train paths, according to article 19.2 of the Regulation (see # 3.3.3 for a minimum set
of indicators).
RFC4 Atlantic / Corridor Information Document 2015 – Part 5
Version 01
72
2.5
Priorities to be applied by the C-OSS in case of conflicting applications
After receipt of all requests for prearranged train paths at X-8, the C-OSS will decide on the
allocation of the prearranged paths.
In the event of conflicting applications, the C-OSS will apply the common priority rule for
coordination which focuses on rewarding applicants with higher commercial value from
IMs/ABs point of view and to maximise the use of capacity (longer pre-arranged path
sections and more often). The formula is described in # 3.3.5.
Changes to this annex can be done under the condition of a common agreement of both
Executive and Management Boards.
This priority rule for coordination concerns only the pre-arranged train paths of the corridor
and are applied only between X-8 and X-7.5 in case of conflicting applications.
Once the allocation decision is made following requests until X-8, the C-OSS will propose
alternative pre-arranged train paths to the dissatisfied applicants. If these alternative
solutions are not sufficiently adequate for the applicant, the C-OSS will forward the requests
to the competent IMs/ABs accordingto article 13.4 of the Regulation. Those path requests
should be considered by IMs/ABs as having been submitted before the X-8 deadline.
Regarding the requests placed after X-8, the priority rule for coordination “first in, first served”
will be applied.
These rules will be inserted in the national network statements of each member of the
Management Board of the corridor, describing the corridor aspects, and will afterwards be
published in the Corridor Information Document.
3. Monitoring of the allocation process
On an annual basis the process of capacity allocation will be evaluated on the corridor with a
view to a continuous improvement of the process. The evaluation will be done after the
allocation of the annual timetable, i.e. in period Mid-August – October each year.
The evaluation will be done by the Management Board, and the Railway Undertaking
Advisory Group and Terminal Advisory Group will be consulted.
A draft evaluation report with recommendations will be discussed in the Executive Board in
the 4th Quarter of each year.
The results of the monitoring will be published by the Management Board, according to
article 19 of the Regulation.
The first evaluation report will be done for the year 2014.
Indicators to be monitored on an bi-annual basis (period 1: mid December till mid June,
period 2: mid June to mid December (change of timetable):
pre-arranged train path:
o
number of offered pre-arranged train paths X-11 per section
o
the number of requests period X-11 till X-8 and X-8 (-1 day) till X-2 (without
feeder/outflow sections)
o
number of train paths which are allocated by C-OSS
o
number of train paths which reached active timetable phase
o
number of conflicting applications (double booking at X-8)

5. Description of the priority rule for coordination at X-8 in the event of conflicting
requests for Pre-arranged Paths
LPAP = Total requested length of pre-arranged path
LTP = Total requested length of complete path
YRD = Number of requested running days for the timetable period.
K = Rate for priority
All lengths are counted in kilometers.
The priority is calculated according to this formula:
(LPAP + LTP ) x YRD = K
This formula can be used so that in a first step the priority value (K) is calculated using only
total requested length of pre-arranged path (LPAP) multiplied by the Number of requested
running days (YRD).
If the requests cannot be separated in this way, the Total requested length of complete path
(LTP) will also be added in the calculation in order to separate the requests.
