HS2 proposal on platform heights - CER Position Paper

HS2 proposal on platform heights - CER Position Paper

Monday, 3 October 2016

The UK presented at RISC (Railway Interoperability and Safety Committee) proposals for the European Commission’s consideration on possible ways to permit the UK to build HS2 platforms at a higher height (1100-1200 mm). The new height would require deviating from the previously set out platform heights, as specified in the TSI INF and the GB Specific Case (915 mm).
CER members, as part of the key association of the European rail operating community, have been asked by the Agency to make their submissions in respect of this proposal, to provide a basis for a new and more extended impact study.
