The Swedish Rail Authority Banverket has selected INTERFLO 550 as its preferred solution for a regional line in Sweden. The need to have ERTMS functionality for operation from the regional lines to the main lines was a critical part of their decision.
Further key aims were to achieve cost reductions of up to 50% in the signalling systems and overall cost reductions approaching 60%. Fully automated operation and increased traffic capacity around the clock will be the result. Under a framework agreement, Bombardier will continue to equip regional lines with INTERFLO 550.
