MISC | ERTMS adoption & implementation

The purpose of this thread is to be a place we can gather info on what countries and lines have decided to use ERTMS, what parts of ERTMS and to what level they are going to, or already have, implemented.

To start of ERTMS is a standard developed to create a unified signalling system for the EU so the concept is to get pretty much all lines here over to ERTMS (even if it takes a long time).

Are any other countries/regions adopting ERTMS as an intended standard for all rail lines? or are places like Ethiopia (which is adopting ERTMS for it's one line that's getting re-built) deciding it on a line-by-line basis?

China has now more km of ERTMS covered lines then any other country.

China adopting ERTMS is to me looking like the decision that will make ERTMS almost a global standard. China is now spreading it on onto Africa and iirc also Mexico.

What lines are using ERTMS in China? What parts and levels of the standard are they using?
And: is there an explicit decision to adopt ERTMS on the whole rail network, or on all the HSR lines or is it decided on line-by-line?

Precisely this issue arose recently because some were unaware that CaHSRA and Mexico will build lines with ERTMS.

ERTMS is service-proven and its attributes are highly applicable to CHSTP automatic train control and radio communications requirements and because the
train control element is integrated within the radio communications system, ERTMS places the highest demands on spectrum and quality of service for the radio network.
This assessment makes several recommendations including that the CHSRA seek the allocation of sufficient radio spectrum for exclusive and/or primary use of a GSM-R system to support ETCS Level 2 for CHSTP operations”.

In 2011 ADIF and Renfe advised the CaHSRA on: Railway Operation, trade policy, maintenance of rolling stock, contingency planning, traffic safety, public safety and civil protection, and outsourcing of support services.

ERTMS is a worldwide standard outside Japan. In Taiwan there are 1,200 km and 811 trains, 4,000 km in China and 270 trains in Saudi are building 2,493 km.

ERTMS in the world (km)

These graphs are for future investments, but may mislead about: "April 2012 and September 2013." There are also countries that have "km of track", twice km double track, while others have "km line", even double track.






Latest "comparable" statistics (and sometimes linear km with km line mix and km contracted km service, they, I hope, be the same for all) that I have are UNIFE 2009 are contracted orders so they can be considered approximately current (if they have fulfilled the orders):


EU 27 + Switzerland: 10,433 km of line (16,947 km of track) and 3,164 vehicles with 3,992 on board units.

Rest of the world: 10,034 km of line (16,156 km of track) and 1,729 vehicles with 2,140 on board units.

Main countries (km): China: 3,897; Sweden: 3.028 and Saudi Arabia: 2,493.
Main countries (vehicles): Taiwan: 811; Switzerland: 556 and Belgium (these are planned but have not yet met, now just announced the award): 506.

Spain: 2,090 km of ine (4,160 km of track) and 545 vehicles with 756 teams.



EU27 + Switzerland: 10,433 km of line (16,947 km of track) and 3,164 vehicles with 3,992 on board units.

Rest of the world: 10,034 km of line (16,156 km of track) and 1,729 vehicles with 2,140 on board units.

Spain: 2,090 km of line (4,160 km of track) and 545 vehicles with 756 teams.

And mistakes, as the only vehicle of Sweden with 221 onboard equipment.

In short, it is difficult to know the current km with homogeneous statistics.

Not to spoil China's party being on top of the chart, but strictly speaking they don't use ETCS. They have CTCS, which is basically a fork of ETCS with some local changes.

I would like to see a G(lobal)RTMS-consortium, which tries to maintain a global train control system, but allows for local variants, just like GSM was developed from a European to a global standard with several localised versions. Given that ERTMS has already spread over world that could happen in the future.

ERTMS Regional

It starts off from a project sponsored by the EU with the name of ERTMS Low Cost, and it consists on directly install a variant of the control system ETCS Level 3, based on GPS and GSM-R, with which is compatible, although different. It does not need side signalling neither balises, so its cost and maintenance are cheaper: 30% according to EU. The problem is that it is impossible to know if there is a broken rail because it does not have track circuits. And it has “islands” without coverage, for example in tunnels. Moreover, unlike ETCS L3, it does not have moving blocks but axles counters, although this is not a problem in low density lines.
It only works in Sweden, in a pilot line (Västerdalsbanan, between Malung and Borlänge, 134 km and 16 trains per day) since 2010. But Norway and Sweden plan to install ETCS L2. It seems to be designed for removing, with a cheap system, the telephone blockades in lines with little traffic. Also, Sweden is not going to comply the plans to extend this system to other eleven lines before 2020.
Bombardier and others (Hyundai will install the GSM-R) has recently signed a contract of 37 million euros for installing this blockade system in the 980-km line from Chingola to Livingstone, in Zambia.

Note: from the Spanish Wikipedia, written by myself and translated by Dirdam (thank you very much!).
This link is to the original in spanish with the sources.

From when is this graph? As of the end of 2012 Austria had 163 locos and 51 control cars equipped with ETCS, but only 585 km of track.

Implementation plans for Belgium :

http://www.railjournal.com/index.php...ationwide.html

Today, ETCS has been inaugurated on a 2-tracks line totaling 160 km :

http://www.lavenir.net/article/detai...41020_00546419

It is said to be the longest european line equipped continuously with ETCS
for the moment.

A total of 723 km (about 25% of the network) are expected to be under ETCS
control for the end of the year.

In Denmark all lines that are managed by Banedanmark (DSB and Arriva lines) will have ERTMS-2 by the end of 2021.


Only a small amount of rural lines will not the equiped with the new signaling system, 2 of them are being converted to light rail in the Aarhus area and will get another kind of signaling sytem.

What I would love to see is a detailed list from all the railway lines equipped with ETCS including which level is used and the total length without counting double tracks twice.

I'll start with Austria:
  • Wien Hbf - Heygeshalom
    Level 1 | 70 km (currently not operational due to an upgraded to Baseline 2.3.0.d)
  • Wien Hbf - Breclav
    Level 2 | 75 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • Lainzertunnel
    Level 2 | 10 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • St. Pölten Hbf - Hadersdorf
    Level 2 | 50 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • Wels - Passau
    Level 1 | 80 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • Attnang-Puchheim – Salzburg
    Level 1 | 75 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • Kufstein - Brenner
    Level 2 | 108 km (BL 2.3.0.d)
  • Kundl/Radfeld - Baumkirchen
    Level 2 | 40 km

Total L1 225 km
Total L2 283 km
Overall 508 km

News on ERTMS in northernmost Sweden:

http://www.wspgroup.com/en/WSP-UK/Wh...re-rail-line-/

Quote:
SP was commissioned to define the requirement specifications, predesign as well as draft the technical procurement documentation for a design and build contract for Malmbanan’s most northern section.
[...]
Malmbanan crosses the border between Norway and Sweden, and requires a high degree of coordination between each country’s national transport agency with respect to product choices, software version handling, commissioning and operation. Malmbanan will also be modernized and double-tracked in a parallel project.

Since the 9th of december the entire Dutch part of ETCS corridor A, which runs from the Maasvlakte in the West to the German border at Zevenaar in the east, is fitted with ERTMS. The last unfitted section, from the exit of the Betuwe route into Germany, was equipped this year, with the old Dutch system ATB now being removed.

Ineco oversee the deployment of ERTMS in TEN-T corridors

The European Commission has entrusted the spanish public company Ineco with the coordination and supervision of the deployment of the European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) of the nine rail corridors that run across the States of the Union over the next six years.

The contract includes the administration and management of the work programs for the nine European freight corridors TEN-T, the coordination among the different entities involved -infrastructure administrators, operators, national security authorities, interest groups of the corridors, European associations…- the deployment management, and the technical and economic control, as well as other activities such as the communications and information support.

This plan has been delayed. Was planned to go live in 2018, but lack of vehicles with the right equipment means they've decided to move that date forward to... no date set.
