European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS), composed of a unique European Train Control System (ETCS) and radio system GSM-R, is designed to gradually replace the existing incompatible national systems throughout Europe.
Implementing ERTMS aims to gain interoperability, support Member State strategies in updating their signaling systems, improve the competitiveness of railway undertakings, and reduce maintenance and operating costs of infrastructure managers.
In this Action, the 62-km Kijfhoek and Zevenaar sections on the Dutch part of the Corridor A Rotterdam-Genoa will be equipped with the ERTMS/ETCS.
State of progress on 31 December 2011:
The implementation of the Action is on-going. The basic design has started and is in progress for the Zevenaar part, and has been completed for the Kijfhoek part.
