A new framework agreement has been awarded to SYSTRA by the Danish rail infrastructure manager to provide traffic information consultancy services.

SYSTRA Denmark has been chosen to support the implementation of new rail traffic information solutions which will be deployed on the platforms of Danish stations for the benefit of passengers.

We are delighted that Banedanmark has agreed to continue our long-term collaboration with them to modernise its rail network. This new framework agreement is an opportunity to develop new ways of transmitting information on the state of train traffic to passengers, on platforms and in stations.

Optimised traffic information for the Danish

In Denmark, passengers have access to several traffic information services to find out about their trains:

  • Rejseplanen, for planning journeys in advance of roadworks and track diversions;
  • The MitTog application, which covers both mainline networks and the S-Bahn network, the automation of which SYSTRA is studying, to find out the location of your train and its platform number;
  • Landets Puls is an animation which allows you to follow all the trains running in the country from the same map.

Banedanmark’s aim is to make station displays and announcements more modern and reliable via information screens on the platforms, in the halls and at the entrances to the forecourts. The following equipment is planned:

  • New screens on mainline trains: these EMPS/TVM* digital screens will display train movements using the same information as MitTog. SYSTRA Denmark is to design the new monitors to be installed in stations on national lines.
  • New monitors to display the DOT*** public transport offer from national lines and the S-Bahn regional network, and to broadcast live traffic information via the Rejseplanen application. SYSTRA Denmark’s role is to design the displays for the new station monitors.
  • New loudspeakers for audible announcements: SYSTRA Denmark will advise Banedanmark on the choice of equipment for stations on the national network, as well as its assembly and installation.

Finally, SYSTRA is assisting Banedanmark with all aspects of specification, procurement, and technical documentation.

Banedanmark: a major client for SYSTRA

SYSTRA has been supporting the Danish network operator for many years in the modernisation and maintenance of its equipment. This was the case for our largest contract in the country, to support the electrification of the rail network, which began in 2013 and will be completed by 2030, with almost 1,300km of lines electrified by catenary. By 1 January 2023, 964km had already been equipped.

Our teams were also mobilised to advise on the deployment of ERTMS signalling and GSM-Rail radio systems. With the integration of Atkins Danmark’s teams, SYSTRA is pursuing other major contracts such as on-site technical supervision notably on the Roskilde – Ringsted and Ringsted – Korsør sections, track renewal on the Svanemøllen-Hillerød railway line, and platform lighting in Jutland and Fionie.
