Select Committee to probe Digital Railway

The House of Commons Transport Select Committee is to investigate plans to deploy European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) signalling and train control, and is calling for submissions by April 6.

The hearing will focus on the efficiency of Network Rail’s planned rollout of ERTMS and European Train Control System (ETCS) technology across the network, how Global Standard for Mobile communications - Rail (GSM-R) technology affects rail infrastructure, and how realistic the timings proposed in NR’s so-called ‘Digital Railway’ programme are.
