Installation of a speed control system on the entire railway network

​The European train control system ERTMS/ETCS level 1 will allow permanent control over the speed of trains based on information from lateral signalling. 

In case a train does not slow down correctly before a stop signal, the system takes automatic control of the train and ensures that the train stops before the signal. The system corresponds in the best way to the Luxembourgish rail network, which has to confront several other systems in use by neighbouring railway networks.

The entire Luxembourgish railway network has in the meantime been equipped with the ETCS system, except for the Luxembourg-Kleinbettingen line which is scheduled to be taken into service in November 2014.
