INTRODUCTION
7 - Safety

High profile rail disasters have pushed safety to the top of the industry's agenda and by 2003 the Train Protection and Warning System will be fully installed.

The system - designed to stop trains going through signals at danger - will be put in place at 11,000 signals across the UK.

Further safety measures include two pilots of the European Rail Traffic Management System.
