Initial analysis of the possibility to substitute a given tram substation with several ones, smaller in size
Languages of publication
The article addresses – based on an existing section of a tram line – the evaluation of the capability to substitute an existing train substation (as a civil structure) with several smaller ones. Taking into consideration the real estate prices and the shortage of available plots in the centers of larger cities, the localization of a substation building poses a significant location and budget challenge, when it comes to new tram lines. Additionally, such objects (substations) often spark concern and protests among the tenants of the nearby houses, as they are considered to be the source of a dangerous electromagnetic radiation and, sometimes, noise. The possibility to significantly reduce the size of those objects would mitigate the aforementioned challenges – both environmental and budget-related.
