ERFA press release on ERTMS

ERFA welcomes the European Court of Auditors’ ERTMS report, stating that ERTMS has not been properly planned, deployed and managed, and that the individual business case for the parties involved have not been considered.

The lack of a business case for today’s railway undertakings, who will face the costs, but very little of the benefits of ERTMS, should be addressed as a priority.

ERFA welcomes the key report recommendations for a thorough assessment of the costs, coordinated and legally binding dates for decommissioning national signalling systems and the improved targeting of EU funding for cross-border sections and locomotives involved in international traffic.
