Data-Driven Robust Timetabling
University of Southampton
In collaboration with Network Rail and Bellvedi/Traccis
This project will investigate the timetabling process and the relationship between the timetable and the rules underpinning it and the resulting performance in terms of train punctuality. The findings will be used to identify the sources and causes of small, timetable-related primary and secondary delays, which will in turn be used to modify the timetable planning process to reduce and eliminate these delays. This could improve the punctuality and reliability of train services, making better use of the available network capacity and, where possible, providing the certainty needed to introduce additional services without causing delays to existing trains.
