ERTMS deployment on the right track?

unife_ertmsERTMS continues to grow its implementation across Europe, and UNIFE applauded Germany’s announcement at the beginning of 2013 that it would equip its rail freight corridors with ERTMS. Such an announcement will add to the momentum of the system due to the increased interoperability between Germany and its many bordering countries. Globally, ERTMS has experienced huge growth and is now positioned to be the global signaling  system—in fact, more than  29000 km of tracks and almost 30000 vehicles are ERTMS equipped outside of Europe. The continuing and upcoming European level initiatives such as the  Connecting Europe Facility (up to €1.1 Billion for 2014- 2020 ERTMS deployment) and SHIFT²RAIL will continue  to develop and encourage implementation of the system  globally. (Message from Henri Poupart-Lafarge, UNIFE Chairman and Philippe Citroën, UNIFE  Director-General; Annual Report 2013).
