Designing public transport development plans for transport on the example of the Pomorskie province
Author: Hubert Kołodziejski
Sustainable development of public transport requires the determination of the desired modal split between public and individual transport and methods for reaching the target. Instrument to achieve the objective goal are supposed to be transport plans. Obligation to draw up these plans results from the law on the public transport, which specifies in detail the scope and form. As an example of fulfilling this obligation was presented a plan for the Pomorskie Region and municipal plans for Gdansk, Gdynia and Słupsk and municipalities, including the cities which submitted to cities their competences in public transport organization. All analysed plans meet legal requirements. They also include a projection of the development of public transport. On this basis, it is possible to achieve the objectives of sustainable transport strategy. These plans should, however, take more into account the role of non-motorized individual transport, including travels realised by a bicycle and on foot. 10 pages.

Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan as an comprehensive approach of planning urban mobility
Author: Katarzyna Hebel, Olgierd Wyszomirski
The article presents essential regulations for the transport plans in Poland. They are summarized with the EU guidelines for sustainable mobility planning defined in the most recent documents. This made possible to identify the similarities and differences in both approaches. Also the planning stages of sustainable mobility and the structure of sustainable urban mobility plan (SUMP) were characterized. On this basis, it was defined that SUMP is an expression of a comprehensive approach to mobility planning in cities. The current transport plans adopted by local authorities of selected Polish cities can serve as a basis to develop SUMPs, but after a significant shortening of the diagnostic part and after completing them with issues related to pedestrian, bicycle and automobile traffic and mobility management. 6 pages.

Kikanka – high-speed train Shinkansen in Japan with variable gauge system
Author: Marek Graff, Akihiro Nakamura
Japanese railways use two gauges - 1067 mm and 1435 mm, the Shinkansen lines were built from the beginning as a standard gauge (new lines, built from the scratch) and conventional lines - as narrow-gauge track. However, there are exceptions from this rule: Nagasaki Shinkansen line is planned as a normal-line and created by converting the existing (Nagasaki Main Line).

Modern rolling stock of Belarussian Railway
Author: Marek Graff
The Belarusian Railways recently purchased many modern rail vehicles - locomotives and multiple units, both diesel and electric. It modernized a part of diesel locomotives for shunting. The main railway lines are electrified (25 kV 50 Hz), although more than half of lines are not electrified. Virtually all the lines are wide gauge (1520 mm). The new fleet was produced by manufacturers other than Russian (until then Belarusian Railways did not use rolling stock of western production). There are also new fast regional trains from Minsk to major cities in Belarus - Baranavichy, Brest, Orsha and others. They are served by electric multiple units, Flirts produced by Stadler. In addition, the suburban railway was established in Minsk agglomeration. They are used there Flirt EMUs, in a changed model, comparing to the regional transport fleet. On non-electrified lines are operated diesel railcars and multiple units manufactured by Polish company Pesa. The new diesel locomotives for passenger trains come from the factory in Kolomna (Russia), and those imported from the former Czechoslovakia have been modernized. For the operation of freight trains were purchased in China new electric locomotives based on Alstom-designed vehicles Prima. There are plans of additional purchases of similar locomotives. 10 pages.

Control of the nonusage of railway track with track circuits and meters of the axles
Author: Henryk Karbowiak, Andrzej Szymczewski
With the development of rail transport, it was necessary to replace the subjective assessment of unoccupied tracks and turnouts, made by human by a control carried out by devices to ensure the safety of rail traffic. Currently, to the occupation of track control are used tracks circuits and axle counters with sensors. Occupation control of the tracks, beside the basic task, which is to ensure traffic safety, also allows automation of railway traffic control. 2 pages.
