Rail technology: signalling and traffic management inquiry


The intelligent use of signalling and traffic management technology through the Digital Railway, could bring substantial benefit to the UK's rail network, says the Transport Committee in its report 'Rail technology: signalling and traffic management'.

Government Response

The Transport Committee looks at the plans for deploying new digital technologies and how they will impact the use of the network by passenger and freight services. The Committee also examines how traffic management technology can improve how timetables are planned by bringing in real-time traffic management and how the ongoing centralisation of signalling responsibilities to large Rail Operating Centres is achieving this.
