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.
This project concerns the serial fitment of ETCS Level 2 equipment in 109 locomotives (72 existing and 37 new). Some of these locomotives have been operational since the end of 2008; they are all in conformity with the prototypes certified under the previous and completed Action 2005-NL-91102.
This implementation is mainly done for Betuwe line (Priority Project 5). As phase two, it will be available for the remaining Dutch part of the Freight Corridor A.
The project has now been completed.
