Signalling Change - Learning from the East Coast Digital Programme (ECDP)

13 January 2022

The Railway Industry Association (RIA) has published a new report on the East Coast Digital Programme (ECDP), a complex initiative to upgrade the East Coast Main Line to digital signalling.

The report looks at the new model of delivery using an industry and commercial partnership, with a greater role for train operators and the supply chain. It sets out why it should lead the way for a national digital signalling programme and other major schemes, especially under Great British Railways.

It was produced following a series of interviews with partners involved in the ECDP and senior industry figures.
