Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 155)


The chapter deals with the features of the organization of high-speed train traffic on existing Uzbek railways. The possibility of preserving and increasing the carrying capacity of high-speed railways with the combined movement, of freight and passenger trains, as well as the influence of speed traffic on the construction and technological parameters of individual parts and structural elements infrastructure of the railway, from the position of ensuring traffic safety at high-speed railways of Uzbekistan is analyzed in the article. The results of the research can be useful in studying, designing and operating a railway track of high-speed roads under similar conditions.
