UIC DEVELOPS STANDARD EUROPEAN INTERLOCKING

The lack of standardization has forced many European suppliers and railways to develop expensive tailor made solutions to interface interlockings from different product lines and suppliers. The article discusses the Euro-Interlocking project that was launched last year by the International Union of Railways (UIC) with the aim of significantly reducing the life cycle costs of future interlockings in Europe. Integrated standards are being developed through a dedicated commitment by the 18 participating railways and infrastructure authorities in close association with interlocking suppliers and national safety authorities.
