EUR 4 million from the EIB will install ERTMS on 76 regional hybrid trains.

High-speed trains will experience technical advancements thanks to the installation of the ERTMS Baseline 3 system.

The Italian railway infrastructure operator intends to implement ERTMS on 3,400 km of lines by 2026.

Once completed, the national network will have approximately 16,800 km of state-of-the-art railway lines, thus restoring the entire control-command system, of which ERTMS is an integral part.
