Member States to fulfil obligations under European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS)

Do you have a National Deployment Plan on ERTMS? Yes Nationaler Umsetzungsplan für die TSI Zugsteuerung, Zugsicherung und Signalgebung des konventionellen transeuropäischen Eisenbahnsystems im Rahmen der Richtlinie 2001/16/EG in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, see: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/rail/interoperability/ertms/edp_map_en.htm
Will the lines due to be equipped (as per European Deployment Plan) be ready for 2015? No Germany wants to postpone the implementation due to high costs. All EU countries will have to notify EC on the progress end of 2012 http://www.europolitics.info/sectori%C2%ADal-policies/ertms-un%C2%ADaccep%C2%ADta%C2%ADble-not-to-invest-says-kallas-art331801-46.html.
