Transurb is Technical Consultants for Norwegian ERTMS programme

In order to ease the maintenance and enhance the reliability, the capacity, Jernbaneverket has been required by the state to develop a plan for rolling ou ERTMS country wide.

This Norwegian ERTMS programme covers the renewal or implementation of interlocking, axle counters, point machines, traffic management system, level crossings. It also includes 600 ETCS trainborne system and the ETCS trackside (RBC, balises).

Through a framework agreement, Transurb will provide Jernbaneverket with technical consultancy in order to support a smooth development of this challenging project.
