BE - Brussels: Support to the European Commission in the deployment of ERTMS on Core and Comprehensive Networks: On-Board and Infrastructure deployment strategies

- Brussels, Belgium, Europe

The general objective of this study is to support interoperability and the deployment of ERTMS through analysing the necessary steps to achieve a simpler on-board CCS configuration from an operator perspective, reducing cost and complexity of upgrade, retrofit and maintenance.

The specific objectives of the study should be to identify:

  • in detail the infrastructure deployment required to achieve ERTMS-only or ERTMS+1 class B systems on 3 relevant networks focused on Core Network/Rail Freight corridors.
  • the minimum OBU strategy for operators, keepers, and owners to run on these networks in the period prior to achieving ERTMS-only or ERTMS+1 class B system.
  • whether accelerated ERTMS infrastructure deployment compared to current plans makes economic sense
  • technical solutions for the selected ETCS/class b combinations to maximize operational impact
  • the national technical rules on the network that act as impediments to the installation of standard ETCS equipment
  • a testing and authorization strategy for the OBU deployment
