For proving resilent, for meeting with “future challenges”, now “height” has to be taken for added load, etc.
(Global devices, upgrade for higher load capacity, for lower costs. Now, so shall infrastructure of railways!
Railways shall not “remain”, but turn, “cost efficient, resilient and valued by society”!)
At reinvestments, etc., capacity and utilisation, of existing, decisively shall be added, by added load capacity.
(Advantage, nearness to ports, ocean, etc., shall be taken advantage of!)
