Définition

The minimum average headway, used to determine maximum practical line capacity, where all spaces for vehicles along the guideway are not occupied. Such a margin is required to prevent congestion and total system stoppage in the event of local irregularities or isolated failures. A margin is also necessary in systems which have junctions to prevent conflicts and delays.
