Deployment of European Railway Traffic Management System is a horizontal priority aiming at ensuring interoperability of the EU railway system.

The Action covers:

-the upgrade of 3 Spanish high speed lines equipped with ERTMS Level 1/Level 2, Baseline 2, release pre-2.3.0d to Baseline 2, Release 2.3.0d

-the upgrade of the GSM-R to Eirene 7/15 specifications.

The three lines are located on the Atlantic Core Network Corridor (1 section of approximately 180 km) and Mediterranean Core Network Corridor (2 sections of approximately 655 km).

The Action is a part of a Global Project on deployment of ERTMS in all Spanish high speed lines and main urban transport nodes. Implementation of the Action will ensure interoperability of a considerable part of the Spanish high speed lines, enabling uninterrupted traffic of ERTMS equipped vehicles.
