Installation of an ERTMS / GSM-R integrated numerical radio network

An ERTMS / GSM-R integrated numerical radio network will be included in the Luxembourgish railway infrastructure. The mobile radio system will integrate oral communication and railway data transmission.

The numerical radio system will facilitate the replacement of all analogue radio communication systems on the railway in the short term, such as:

  • the track-to-train system;
  • the radio system for shunting services;
  • the radio system for maintenance services.


The ERTMS / GSM-R system will guarantee technical interoperability at a European level with infrastructure managers and railway undertakings in accordance with EU directives 96/48/EC and 2001/16/EC.


A total of 85 sites will be constructed. They will consist of a prefabricated building and concrete pillar.
