Optimisation and ranking of permanent way types for light rail systems

Goran Ćirović, Snežana Mitrović, Vladan Branković, Mirjana Tomičić-Torlaković

Abstract

The evaluation process proposed in the paper is aimed at enablingall interested parties to select the best permanent way type for light track systems, taking into account particular features of every urban area. To this effect, various solutions were studied and ranked by means of the multicriteria evaluation theory in order to determine which specific type can be recommended. The authors do not wish to favour neither the light rail system as a type of public passenger transport nor any particular type of permanent way.

Keywords
evaluation criterion, light rail system, track structure, alternatives, optimization process, ranking, multicriteria evaluation theory
