SPECTRUM D2.3 - GAP Analysis

Please be advised that SPECTRUM D2.3 (GAP Analysis) is now available to download from the members area of the document download section of the project website.

In this task, the market requirements identified in earlier work packages are aligned with existing transportation solutions by way of a targeted survey. This allows the identification of gaps in the market requirements and the potential of current and future transportation solutions.

Beyond that typically considered a GAP analysis, the work endeavours to identify the transportation solutions with the greatest potential and their likely impact.

This survey has shown us that many of the anticipated SPECTRUM concept objectives and ambitions have significant potential.

It is very important to note that the majority of measures explored throughout the course of this survey are not mutually exclusive. Mixed running requires operational change, but also technical innovation, in order that freight services operate at similar performance levels to passenger services.

This survey has assisted the SPECTRUM consortium in identifying the potential of proposed technical innovations.
