Adaptable Automated Resilient
With the first projects of the FOR programme underway, FEHRL is developing the ‘sister’ programmes Forever Open Railway, Forever Open River and Forever Open Runway for railway, river and runway infrastructure, respectively.
Together these four concepts constitute the FOR x 4 initiative on transport infrastructure (see image below). Due to the strong technical overlaps in the infrastructure requirements, there will be many complementary research actions in these other modes - eg bridges, earthworks, materials.
One example of a Forever Open Railway project is CAPACITY4RAIL.
