ERTMS implementation on the Railway Corridor C (Antwerpen-Lyon/Basel)
The 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.
The main objective of this Action is to upgrade 25 Luxembourgish locomotives with ETCS Level 1 SRS 2.3.0d, to equip 45 French locomotives the same system and 60 additional Belgian locomotives with ETCS Level 2 SRS 2.3.0d. The development of a tool based on scenarios and the tests of interoperability at border points is also foreseen.
