Assessment of Slovak rail capacity in terms of freight transport

The aim of the paper is to assess the actual capacity of the corridor lines in Slovakia in terms of the freight transport needs and EU transport policy objectives, based on the analysis of track capacity. The railway track sections of the north-south corridor on the ŽSR network are problematic from the point of view of limited capacity, especially at Štúrovo border station. Part of the research includes measures leading to an increase in the capacity of  lines and stations for the needs of transit freight. These measures have to be assessed from an operational and economic point of view.
Key words: freight corridor, capacity, border station, freight trains, assessment
