Planurile Guvernului pentru căile ferate îngrijorează experţii europeni


Îngrijorare la Bruxelles în privinţa Master Planului pentru Transporturi. Atât preşedintele Comisiei de Transport din Parlamentul european cât şi alte două organizaţii de profil au trimis scrisori mai marilor Comisiei Europene şi autorităţilor de la Bucureşti. Se tem că prin documentul aprobat în această toamnă de Guvern se lasă deschisă portiţa pentru ca, pe viitor, autorităţile să poată renunţa la 45% din şinele de cale ferată. De la Bucureşti, oficialii români fac declaraţii încurajatoare: liniile cu puţini călători vor fi cel mult conservate, nu vândute la fier vechi

În Master Planul pentru Transporturi, document aprobat de Guvern, scrie că România se poate descurca cu doar 55% din reţeaua de cale ferată. Oricum nu sunt bani pentru repararea şi întreţinerea tuturor celor aproape 19.000 de kilometri de şină. Şi calculele privind banii de care e nevoie au fost făcute tot ţinând cont de o reţea redusă.

Preşedintele Comunităţii Căilor Ferate Europene atrage atenţia, într-o scrisoare transmisă oficialilor români şi europeni, că deşi înţelege dorinţa de creştere a eficienţei, reducerea drastică a reţelei de cale ferată nu este o soluţie şi nici nu este în conformitate cu politica europeană.

Libor Lochman, director executiv al Comunităţii Căilor Ferate Europene: „Clar, Uniunea Europeană trebuie să se uite la politica regională, la cea de conexiune şi trebuie să verifice dacă decizia autorităţilor române este una potrivită.”

Aceeaşi opinie este împărtăşită şi de preşedintele Comisiei de transport din Parlamentul European. Europarlamntarul atrage atenţia asupra importanţei liniilor regionale şi suburbane, care asigură 80% din traficul pe calea ferată.

Ministrul Transporturilor spune, însă, că nu vrea să taie din calea ferată.

Sorin Buşe, ministrul Transporturilor: „Eu mă opun acestei cifre de 40%, mă opun principial. Scopul masterplanului şi cerinţa Comisiei Europene a fost de a îmbunătăţi eficienţa căilor ferate.”

Robert Dobre, preşedintele ARF: „Nu va exista tăiere de cale ferată. Se va discuta cu comunităţile locale, se va discuta cu agenţii economici, se vor face convenţii de transport pe calea ferată. Asta va face ARF-ul prin analizele din anul 2017.”

Liniile pentru care nu va exista cerere vor intra în conservare, dar nu vor ajunge la fier vechi. România are peste 8.000 de kilometri de şină care n-au mai beneficiat de reparaţii capitale. Anual se repară sub 20 de kilometri de cale ferată.

Dan Costescu, fost ministru al Transporturilor: „CFR nu a primit bani. Există o subfinanţare cronică în ultimii 25 de ani... 27 se fac acum. Şi această subfinanţare trebuia recuperată. Eu o văd realist recuperată în 5-6 ani.”

Deocamdată, din cauza şinelor şi a terasamentelor vechi de zeci de ani, trenurile româneşti au o viteză de două ori mai mică decât a celor din Vest.

Romania – Sweden freight service to launch

EUROPE: Samskip and Rail Cargo Group are to launch a rail freight service during January linking Curtici near Arad in western Romania with major logistics centres in Sweden.

This will join two existing freight routes to form what the partners say will be the ‘first unified rail connection’ between Romania and Scandinavia, taking advantage of Samskip's hub at Duisburg in Germany. Shipments from Romania will take four to five working days to reach Stockholm, and the initial service of four round trips per week between Curtici and Duisburg is expected to be increased to five per week later in the year.

Samskip will act as the single point of contact, providing customers with an online portal to manage bookings, monitor shipments and obtain automatic departure and arrival notifications.

‘Until now, shippers wanting to transport shipments between the two regions have had little choice but to use road haulage, running the risk of road congestion, delays and unpredictable delivery times’, said Frank Gielen, Rail Development Manager at Samskip Van Dieren Multimodal. ‘The rail connection offers shippers a more reliable alternative, as well as achieving substantially lower emissions per unit load.’


Max Kindler, Intermodal Business Unit Manager at Rail Cargo Group, said the companies would also be ‘the first to offer an end-to-end connection between Turkey and Scandinavia, combining Rail Cargo Group connections between Turkey and Romania, and Romania and Germany, with Samskip's network from Duisburg to various destinations in Scandinavia’. This would offer a high frequencies, ‘very competitive transit times and attractive price levels’.

First China-U.K. Freight Train Departs as Xi Seeks to Lift Trade

China initiated a rail-freight service to Britain as part of President Xi Jinping’s efforts to strengthen trade ties with Europe.

The first train departed Yiwu in eastern Zhejiang province on Jan. 1 and will cover more than 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles) in about 18 days before reaching London, China Railway Corp. said in a statement Monday. The service, carrying garments, bags and suitcases among other items, will pass through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France.

London becomes the 15th European city with direct trains from China following the unveiling of Xi’s so-called Belt-and-Road initiative in 2013. The plan put transport links at the center of efforts to create a modern Silk Road and boost commercial ties to markets across Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

While the train can carry about 200 containers, versus 20,000 on a large cargo vessel, the trip takes about half as long as a 30-day sailing between East Asia and northern Europe. That will make rail a competitive option when maritime shipments are held up or miss the booked departure, especially compared with airfreight, which costs twice as much, according to Michael White, operations director at Brunel Shipping, the U.K. booking agent for the service.

Brunel is also involved in the operation of a China-Madrid freight train that’s run for more than a year and ranks as the world’s longest rail service, ahead even of the Moscow-Vladivostok trans-Siberian passenger route. The Spanish train carries olive oil back to China, and White said in an interview that the U.K. operation, which will unload in Barking, east London, needs to tap a similar export flow, possibly of British designer goods.

China has initially set aside about $40 billion in a fund to finance roads and railways abroad under President Xi’s strategy, while trade with countries along the corridor could reach $2.5 trillion in about a decade, Yao Gang, the then vice chairman of China Securities Regulatory Commission, said in 2015.

Railways are one of the top priorities of Xi and only last month, the country announced that it plans to spend 3.5 trillion yuan ($503 billion) to expand the national system by 2020.

A high-speed rail network will span more than 30,000 kilometers under the plan, according to a State Council Information Office briefing in Beijing Thursday. The distance, about 6.5 times the length of a road trip between New York and Los Angeles, will cover 80 percent of major cities in China.

China has also used railways as a diplomatic tool overseas. Chinese domestic train manufacturers have targeted emerging markets in Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia for rail-related orders while also bidding for high-profile contracts in the developed world.

China’s economy is on pace to meet the official growth target, posting 6.7 percent expansions in the first three quarters of 2016.

The Xinhua state news service reported the departure of the first China-London train earlier.
