Live testing of European Rail Traffic Management System


Live testing of the European Rail Traffic Management System for automatic train protection could begin on the Cambrian line in mid-Wales in three years, the Strategic Rail Authority said this week.

Results will help develop new signalling principles in time for further roll-out in 2008. The Health & Safety Commission welcomed the progress and said an interim safety system, the Train Protection & Warning System (TPWS), completed last year, has already saved lives.
