Typically, such journeys cover distances of no more than 100 km. -MEDİUM-LONG DİSTANCE PASSENGERS: Generally used to denote passengers using rail to travel over distances of greater than 100 km, often between major cities.
Transport Corridors and Developments in the EU EU contries established Asia-Europe transport corridors in order to increase trade with Asian countries and to get more share from Asian markets.This transportation corridors effecting Turkey by the way of railway listed below: Pan-Europe 4. Corridor 4th corridor connected to Thessaloniki and Istanbul and the other side Constanta by the road of Berlin-Prague-Budapest is important that Turkey takes place as route country in the Pan-Europe transportation corridor. The project covers 3640 km by road, 4340 km of railways, 8 sea and river ports and 10 airports.
Transport Corridor Europe – Caucasus – Asia (TRACECA)) which is implemented by the European Union regulates Pan-European Transport Corridors. What is TRACECA? The technical assistance programme for the development of the transport corridor between Europe and Asia across the Black Sea, the countries of the South Caucasus, the Caspian Sea and the Central Asian countries – the TRACECA programme – was launched in May 1993 . Since then the EU has financed 62 technical assistance and 14 investments projects . TRACECA aims at supporting political and economic independence of the Republics by enhancing their capacity to access European and World markets through alternative transport routes, encouraging further regional co-operation among the partner countries and increasingly being a catalyst to attract the support of International Financial Institutions (IFIs) and private investors. The year of 2008 in the life of TRACECA is notable by such significant events as 15th Anniversary of the TRACECA Programme and 10th Anniversary of signing the “Basic Multilateral Agreement on International for Development of the “Europe-the Caucasus-Asia” Corridor”. On 16 June 2009 the Seventh Annual Meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission (IGC) TRACECA was held in the Kyrgyz Republic. Main issues of discussions were the state of play in 2008 of the Action Plan on Implementation of the IGC TRACECA Strategy on the Development of the Europe – the Caucasus – Asia Transport Corridor for the period up to 2015, the increase of the TRACECA corridor competitiveness and attraction of additional traffic flows, further prospects of the TRACECA development, and reforming the TRACECA structures in the context of the South-Eastern Axis development for the extension of the Trans-European Transport Networks to the neighbouring EU countries and the Central Asian countries. How does it work? The strategic framework of the Intergovernmental Commission (IGC) TRACECA comprises a number of pillars in order to achieve by 2015 the desired objective of delivering a sustainable, efficient and integrated multimodal transport system at both the EU and TRACECA levels: • Assisting in the development of economic relations, trade and transport communications in Europe, Black Sea region and Asia • Ensuring access to the world market of road, rail transport and commercial navigation • Ensuring traffic security, cargo safety and environment protection • Harmonisation of transport policy and legal structure in the field of transport • Creation of equal conditions of competition for transport operations Following the conclusions reached at the EU-Caspian region Transport Ministerial Conference on 14 November 2004 in Baku, 4 expert working groups have been created • aviation, • security in all modes of transport, • road and rail transport, • transport infrastructure At the occasion of the Second Ministerial Conference on transport Cooperation in May 2006, a fifth Working group on maritime transport has been created. Who are the TRACECA partners? In September 1998 , twelve countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Ukraine) signed the “Basic Multilateral Agreement on International Transport for the Development of the Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia” (MLA), including four supplementary technical annexes on rail and road transport, commercial maritime navigation, customs procedures and documentation during the International TRACECA Conference in Baku. At Issyk-Kul during the 7th Intergovernmental Conference the Islamic Republic of Iran was welcomed within TRACECA. Turkmenistan is a participating country in the Technical Assistance Programme without having signed the MLA.

Economic efficiency is one of the important factors in the selection of a transportation system. Because transportation services and investments are seen as a means of public service and social politics in many countries, economic efficiency criteria aren’t taken into consideration in planning and pricing these services and as a result, such problems as waste of resources, insufficient funding for transportation services, the tortuosity in the selection of transportation services and negative externalities are encountered. İn this study the comparison of economic efficiency based on cost, in which the costing of construction, maintenance and operating of highway and railway which are two main transportation are included, was done.

RAILWAY TRANSPORTThe rail road is basically a long hauler and slow mover of rawmaterials (coal, lumber and chemicals) and of low-valuedmanufactured products (food, paper and wood products) andprefers to move shipment sizes of at least a full wagon load(Ballou, 1999). According to Nash and Whiteing (1988), railtransportation services can be classified in four categories as(1)less than wagonload (services ranging from parcels conveyedby passenger train to grouped consignments conveyed by freighttrain), (2) wagonload (consignments which fill one or morewagons, but which are not large enough to justify provision of adedicated train), (3) trainload (dedicated block train running fromone terminal to another) and (4) intermodal. When the lastintermodal option about railways is considered, it is seen thatrailways’ use in increasing due to developments in differenttechnologies and infrastructure such as RO-LA systems .(Denktaş,G.2010)
White Paper European Commission(EC.) has putted users requirements bases of strategies by accepted white book in September, 2001 and has developed 60 preventions with this approach The first prevention is regenerating the railways, seaways, inland waterways and establish a connection with each others and providing controlled growth in highway by this means EC aims to offset the whole transportation modes High quality and reliable services and providing concrete support for sustainable development aimed by EC. At the same time, EC. is planning to establish a close connection between growth of economy and transportation for decreasing the pressure on the environment. White Paper “European Transport Policy for 2010: Time to Decide”, 2001 European Commision.
White Paper EC. wants to make transportation policy with that 60 Preventions. Some of them related with raillway are specified below; Prevention of Congestions:EC. has developed 30 milion Euros budgeted(per year) Marco Polo Programme for intermodel transportation to integration of railways, seaways and inland waterways. Main Infrastructure Works:In the context of TEN-T Project, EC is foreseeing that efforts will be intensificated for high speed railways and airway connections and increase the share of railway cargo transportation .White Paper “European Transport Policy for 2010: Time to Decide”, 2001 European Commision.
White Paper A new additional policy document, identify the EU’s(Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area – Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system) 40 enterprises for 2050, are participated at updated version of white paper 2011. Freight shipments over short and medium distances (below some 300 km)7 will to a considerable extent remain on trucks. It is therefore important, besides encouraging alternative transport solutions (rail, waterborne transport), to improve truck efficiency, via the development and the uptake of new engines and cleaner fuels, the use of intelligent transport systems and further measures to enhance market mechanisms. www.tobb.org.tr Türkiye Ulaştırma ve 2011 Lojistik Meclisi Sektör Raporu

DEREGULATION Deregulation is the removal or simplification ofgovernment rules and regulations that constrain theoperation of market forces. It is different from liberalization, where more playersenter in the market, but continues the regulation andguarantee of consumer rights and maximum and minimumprices. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deregulation
DEREGULATION IN UNITED STATES Privatization of US Railways The first round of policy change was the Railroad Revitalization and Regulatory Reform Act of 1976. Staggers Rail Act of 1980:this meant that railway companies were allowed to compete with each other, and set the transportation prices freely http://people.hofstra.edu/geotrans/eng/ch9en/appl9en/ch9a1en.html
DEREGULATION IN UNITED STATESConsequenses; The railroads immediately divested themselves of their unprofitable passenger business, and began to concentrate on their core freight activity The railroads began abandoning tracks. Operators increasingly focused on strategic long distance corridors linking major gateways and inland markets. Operating costs were reduced significantly by staff reductions . The post deregulation period has been marked by a significant development in mergers and acquisitions. From 56 Class I railroads in 1975 the number has been reduced to 7 in 2005, two of which are Canadian. Finally, the restrictions on intermodal ownership and operation has led to a revitalization of the general freight business with alliances with trucking companies to carry their long distance cargo. http://people.hofstra.edu/geotrans/eng/ch9en/appl9en/railperformance.html

DEREGULATION IN UKPrivatization Process The process in Britain started with round negotiations within the government in the mid 1980’s In 1987,vertical separation was used.It was failure British Rail was privatised in 1994 but the failure of Railtrack led to the creation of Network Rail, a ‘not for profit’ company in 2002. The Labour Government has continued to privatise or part-privatise other parts of the UK public sector since came to power in 1997
DEREGULATION IN UKConsequences; privatization created markets and demand privatization broke down barriers to entry in industries and made them more contestable. Capping is an appropriate way to curtail the monopoly power of “natural monopolies”http://kouvola.lut.fi/files/download/Tutkimusraportti169_OP_B.pdf
DEREGULATION IN CHINA Labour productivity of the Chinese Rail system is relatively low. As Figure 8 shows, in 1990 the average train-km per staff of the Chinese rail network was 496, compared with the average of 2926 for Western European railways. As the economy grows and increasing demands are placed on the rail sector, certain specific problems are emerging Because of the fast-growing demand and capacity constraints, China Rail’s management attention has focused on maximising operational efficiencies RAILWAY REFORM IN CHINA PROMOTING COMPETITION, Summary and Recommendations of an OECD/DRC Seminar on Rail Reform in Beijing 28-29 January 2002
DEREGULATION IN CHINA In the mid-1990s, faced with a financial deficit in the rail sector, China experimented with certain reforms. In 1998, the Ministry of Railways piloted a “responsibility system” These reforms have been carried out by means of responsibility system Production quotas have been implemented on a per-worker basis, Reform of the labour, personnel and distribution systems The Ministry of Railways has speeded up its pace of shifting its administrative functions, Four railway bureaux have set up a separate legal entity to provide passenger transport services; Five major companies in railway engineering, railway construction, rolling stock manufacturing, telecommunications signalling, and civil engineering have been detached from the Ministry The Ministry of Railways has organised three large-scale campaigns to increase train speeds on trunk railway lines on April 1, 1997, October 1, 1998, and October 21, 2000 respectively.
DEREGULATION IN RUSSIA Russia went through wide-ranging deregulation (andconcomitant privatization) efforts in the late 1990sunder Boris Yeltsin, now partially reversed under VladimirPutin. The main thrust of deregulation has been theelectricity sector (see RAO UES), with railroads andcommunal utilities tied in second place.[citationneeded] Deregulation of the natural gas sector (Gazprom) isone of the more frequent demands placed upon Russia bythe United States and European Union.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deregulation#Russia

ECONOMICEnergy efficiency Rail is on average 2 - 5 times more energy efficient than road, shipping and aviation Through approaches including eco-driving,use of new rolling stock, and operational measures, railways continue to improve http://www.etc-corporate.org/resources/uploads/railways&environment_facts&figures.pdf
ECONOMIC On the technical side, technical improvements have permitted roughly a 50% reduction in freight costs per tonne-km on the major freight systems, primarily through more intensive use of capacity and reduction in energy costs, coupled with far better use of information to control system quality and enhance pricing. The containerization revolution that started in the maritime area ended up as a major source of traffic for railways, especially in the US and Canada, though Russia, China and India have seen significant traffic increases in containers.
SOCIAL Noise emissions Noise is perceived as the most important environmental problem for people living close to railway lines İnfrastructure companies and railway operators are working at progressively reducing noise emissions from railhttp://www.etc-corporate.org/resources/uploads/railways&environment_facts&figures.pdf
SOCIAL Railway noise control possibilities Significant progress has been made in noise abatement over the past 50 years.The systematic study and research of the issue has lead to the introduction of disc-braked passenger vehicles,new freight wagons with K-blocks,or the construction of noise barriers along major lines. At the source:Rolling noise is caused by small irregulations on both wheel and the track in the contact area between the two. Between the source and neighbouring buildings:A possibility to reduce noise is to use noise barriers Near the neighbouring buildings:Noisy can be reduced in the immediate vicinity of the habitant on the building by using insulated windows. http://www.uic.org/etf/publication/publication-detail.php?code_pub=516
SOCIAL Railway noise reduction projects Railways have, in the last decade, developed sector funded or EC co-funded research and development projects to understand and mitigate railway noise from its source. Recent and ongoing important rail noise activities include: Silence,EU project 2005-2008 QCity, EU project 2005-2009 STAIRRS,EU project 2000-2003
SOCIALSilence Project(2005-2008):EU together with public and private partners Control of noise at the source, Noise emission, The human perception of noise, New technological solutions have been developed for quieter road and rail vehicles, rail infrastructure, road surface and vehicle-tyre-road interaction. A sound synthesis software has also been developed to optimise and simulate the noise reduction of a train or car pass-by. SILENCE provides a toolkit to reduce noise through traffic management and in-vehicle driver support systems http://www.silence-ip.org/site/#548
TECHNOLOGICAL The biggest technological impact on the rail industry are passenger rail innovations, especially High Speed Rail (HSR). Japan is the first country to develop HSR technology in 1963 with introduction of the Shinkansen Train. The principal benefits from, HSR are: time savings additional capacity reduced externalities from other modes generated traffic wider economic benefits

ENVIRONMENT External costs congestion, air pollution, climate change, accidents, noise, up- and down-stream processes(vehicle and fuel production and infrastructure provision), costs for nature and landscape or additional costs in urban areas. External costs are costs generated by transport users and not paid by them but by the society.UIC recommends internalisation of these external costs to allow transport users to take the right decisions and the polluter pays principle to optimise the transport sector. http://www.uic.org/spip.php?rubrique1588
ENVIRONMENT CO2 is the major greenhouse gas contributing to global warming and climate change. Travelling by rail is on average 3-10 times less CO2 intensive compared to road or air transport. Electric railways(Electricity Mix) could achieve zero CO2 emissions if the electricity production is sourced from renewable energy sources such as wind energy,hydro and the other renewables.

RAILWAY TRANSPORTATION Rail is one common method of freight transportation. This is a cost-effective method, especially for carrying energy freights. Because this method has less speed and lower reliability, it costs much less than other methods. Compared to truck transportation, it can making freight more affordable. Transport bulkier and heavier commodities such as coal, chemicals, and petroleum in large volume to more distant areas
RAILWAY TRANSPORTATION Another advantage of railroads is that service providers can use existing infrastructures; in most countries, governments provide the infrastructure and therefore it needs less investment, However, in some countries, especially underdeveloped ones, not all of a region is covered by railways. As a result, there is less opportunity to use this mode to transport energy freight on a national scale.

What is TEN-Thttp://tentea.ec.europa.eu/en/ten-t_projects
What is TEN-T Transport infrastructures The TEN-T Components The ultimate policy objective of the TEN-T is the establishment of a single, multimodal network covering both traditional ground-based structures and equipment (including intelligent transport systems) to enable safe and efficient traffic. Increasingly, it also involves the deployment of innovative systems that not only promise benefits for transport but also have substantial potential for industrial innovation. The Trans-European Transport Network shall be established gradually by integrating land, sea and air transport infrastructure components, and by including the necessary technical installations, information and telecommunication systems to ensure smooth operation of the network and efficient traffic management. The transport infrastructure components are road, rail and inland waterway networks, motorways of the sea, seaports and inland waterway ports, airports and other interconnection points between modal networks. Intelligent transport systems include the traffic management systems for road, rail, air and waterborne transport as well as the positioning and navigation systems.http://tentea.ec.europa.eu/en/ten-t_projects
TEN-T Rail The EU’s rail network consists of both high-speed and conventional rail lines and their related infrastructures and facilities which enable rail and and other transport modes to be integrated. Rail projects aim to ultimately create a safe and high-quality infrastructure, by ensuring network continuity and interoperability.http://tentea.ec.europa.eu/en/ten-t_projects
TEN-T European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) ERTMS is a harmonised command and control system recommended for the European railway network.
