Update on Languedoc Roussillon circulation interruption between Lunel-Nîmes on the line Tarascon-Sète-Ville
The works to recondition the tracks are planned until 27/09, with scheduled restart of the circulation Tuesday 28/09 (with speed restriction to 40Km/h for 3 Kms).
The circulation of freight trains is anyway ensured on the tracks of the Contournement Nîmes Montpellier (CNM).
SNCF Réseau follow and updates the clients through the SONAR meeting.
On the 14th of September, some heavy rainfall in the South of France caused flooding and disruption between Lunel and Nimes.
This disruption will last several days, today SNCF R is currently analyzing the consequences and will plan the works to reopen the line.
Freight trains are routing via the new line CNM (Contournement Nimes Montpellier).
We will give more information as soon as possible.
Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI) technology accelerates with the publication of the 500 million euro tender for the design and construction of the ERTMS (European Rail Transport Management System), the most advanced system for the supervision and control of train running, in Abruzzo, Sicily, Umbria, Tuscany and Lazio. The tender represents the first step of the technological projects financed by the PNRR, with almost 3 billion euros earmarked for the implementation of ERTMS on over 3,400 km of railway network by 2026, in line with the RFI plan which aims to install the system on all 16,700 km of line.
The European Rail Transport Management System promotes interoperability between railway operators from different countries and improves performance, allowing the passage of a major number of trains and contributing to better punctuality.
Furthermore, through the information exchanged between the on-board and track side subsystem, it is possible to follow any moment train running,providing the driver with all the information necessary with the activation of the emergency braking in the event that not all parameters are met or the train speed exceeds the limits. So far this technology was applied to High Speed trains, but now will also be extended to regional lines bringing a positive effect environmentally thanks to the elimination of the signaling systems that runs along the tracks.
The call for tenders is available here
Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor has been set up on 10th November 2013 according to Regulation (EU) 913/2010 to strengthen international rail freight transport and promote sustainable mobility. Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor is one of the 9 corridors enlisted in the Regulation; it crosses 6 Countries of the European Union: Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary.
The Corridor is the result of a strong cooperation among Infrastructure Managers/Allocation Bodies belonging to the Corridor.
Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor at a glance:
Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor is the result of a strong cooperation among Infrastructure Managers and Allocations Bodies involved in the project. The members, together with the Permanent Management Office staff were able to set up a functional governing structure.
All the partners are working to offer to all possible customers a quality service for rail freight transport that is competitive and reliable.
We are concentrating on offering a competitive rail freight transport service that focuses on customers’ needs and expectations.
This is realized through:
The Permanent Management Office (PMO) of Mediterranean RFC is located in Milan (Italy) in a RFI fenced area.
The Mediterranean RFC PMO is led by a Managing Director, Furio Bombardi, who is also one of the EEIG Managers, responsible for the management of the Corridor activities. The PMO staff is composed of István Pákozdi who is Deputy Director and Infrastructure Advisor, Stephanie Joncour who is the One-Stop-Shop Leader of the Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor, Giulia Gargantini, the Project Manager and Pamela Chiarappa, the Administrative Assistant.
The internationality of the team is considered as a key requirement to ensure a fair balance of representation among the partners and a corridor oriented perspective overcoming national views.
According to Regulation 913/2010 the Management Board is composed of the Infrastructure Managers and the Allocation Bodies concerned by the Corridor.
Management Board of Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor is composed of: Administrador de Infrastructuras Ferroviarias (ADIF), Línea Figueras Perpignan S.A. (LFP), Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français - Réseau (SNCF Réseau), Oc’Via (Oc’Via), Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI), Sž - Infrastruktura d.o.o. (Sž-Infra), Magyar Államvasutak Zártkörűen Működő Részvénytársaság (MÁV); Vasúti Pályakapacitás-elosztó Korlátolt Felelősségű Társaság (VPE), and HŽ Infrastruktura d.o.o. (HŽI).
The Management Board is responsible for all the management activities as provided for in Regulation 913/2010.
The Management Board of Mediterranean RFC decided to take the form of an independent legal entity, that is an EEIG. According to this, the Management Board of Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor acts as the General Assembly of the EEIG. The General Assembly is the decision making body of the EEIG and Bojan Kekec (Sž-Infra) chairs it. The Management Board delegated its functions to the Permanent Management Office (PMO) headquartered in Milano, which is supervised by the General Assembly.
The EXBO is chaired by the French Ministry of Transport and represented by the President Joseph Lunet de la Malene.
In order to exchange the best practices and to define common guidelines, a Network of Executive Boards, “NEXBO”, was established in 2017, actively supported by the board.
The group meets twice a year.
Mediterranean Rail Freight Corridor Advisory Groups (AGs) are the consultation bodies where Terminal Managers and Railways Undertaking interested in the use of the Corridor can get information and provide inputs to the Corridor Management.
These meetings alternatively take place in the eastern or in the western part of the Corridor in order to establish a regular dialogue with all the stakeholders.

In line with the Regulation 913/2010 harmonized procedures for coordinating Traffic Management along the freight corridor are defined in CID Book 4, chapter 13.
All Infrastructure Managers experts involved in the Corridor are working under the coordination of the PMO to provide Corridor trains running on international paths with higher priority and to increase the level of harmonization for Traffic Management and Traffic Management in the event of disturbance at Corridor level.
PRIORITY RULES of the IMs of the RFC 6, are available on RNE WEB site, in the “Priority rules in operations” section, at the following link: http://www.rne.eu/priority_rules/index.php.
In addition, bilateral agreements are in force in the following cross border sections Spain – France, France – Italy, Italy – Slovenia, Slovenia – Hungary. Bilateral agreements can be obtained on demand at C-OSS.
Performance Management, which is foreseen by Regulation 913/2010, is the process to manage the performances of the trains running along the Corridor and of course it includes the Performance Monitoring, as described in the Train Performance Management Manual of RFC 6.
Performance Monitoring of MED RFC will be organized in two steps:
The Performance Management includes identification of punctuality targets. The ones identified for MED RFC are the following:
Long-term performance objectives are the following:
Trains will be monitored on the basis of information provided by TIS. In case TIS is not fully operational on the corridor especially at the beginning of the implementation of the corridor, MED RFC will use IMs’ internal information systems. This would require regular data, identifying Train on PaPs and all other trains, to be provided to the C-OSS.
The MedRFC is glad to inform you that a general brochure is online to give you an easy overview of who we are and what we do, together to some facts and figures.
For more information, please do not hesitate to address us at our contacts.
