Siemens equips Hungarian railway line with European Train Control System

​"As major programs have been launched to upgrade the railway system in Central and East-European countries, this project will ensure optimized capacity, improved service quality, as well as safety and security of the Hungarian public rail transport system. Being one of the pioneers of ETCS, Siemens – with its Trainguard solution – is providing field-proven systems and products of lineside, on-board and communication equipment for all ETCS applications", said Michael Peter, CEO of the Mobility Division.
The 26 km long two-track line is an extension of the Kelenföld - Százhalombatta line. The Hungarian railway network is undergoing an important modernization and is part of a global project in order to upgrade and develop the Budapest Kelenföld - Croatian border railway line, in order to eliminate an important bottleneck along the Mediterranean corridor. The development of the overall network will be reflected in the optimization of travel times, the modernization of about 280 km of lines and in the public rail transport system.
