Abstract

The introduction of competition in the railway market affects the procedure of infrastructure capacity allocation. Despite the new entries in the market, timetable drafting, proposing and capacity allocation remains in the infrastructure manager’s responsibility. In the literature, this method of capacity allocation belongs to centralized approach. However, when railway operators request the same infrastructure capacity at the same time, the infrastructure manager is often not able to meet all requests. In such cases, conflict requests can be resolved using a market mechanism. This means that railway operators are proposing their timetable as a request and infrastructure manager organize auction for capacity allocation –the decentralized approach. This paper presents discussion of controversies concerning centralized and decentralized approach in order to underline their main disadvantages for increasing the railway infrastructure efficiency.
