As currently, TEN-T “investments”…, devastatingly are “cementing”, at no longer optimal railway standards (and even worse, in no respect resilient) hopefully, at Tunnel, etc., now, “height” is taken for future demand!
(Apart of climatic, now rapid shift at Market, is the new normal.)
All other modes, those duly resilient, upgrade for higher load – and lower costs.
(Current railway standards, no longer are optimal.)
As, at any vitals of society, electrification shall be redundant, etc., etc.
