Modelling the future railway: ERTMS and related technologies

Please note the date of this event has now changed from original advertisement due to the proposed Tube driver strike.

Railways around the world have begun to embrace the digital age in order to address the capacity challenge, with 25% predicted passenger increase over the next 10 years on the mainline railways. At the same time there is also a drive to lower the capital and operational cost of the railways, improving asset performance, and assuring its continuing environmental competitiveness.

A range of studies have been delivered on behalf of the Department for Transport, Network Rail and RSSB, which have underpinned the Rail Technical Strategy and Digital Railway future plans by demonstrating the business case for a shift towards digital technologies. Steve Denniss, Technical Director Rail, of WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff will introduce the main principles of integrated railway performance modelling which has supported these studies on projects including:

  • ERTMS Level 3 Risks and Benefits
  • Low cost signalling
  • ETCS Benefits to train operators

There is no charge for attendance and this event is open to non-members but places must be booked in advance.

Please arrive from 1730 for an 1800 start. Basic refreshments will be provided.
