    Message from the chair

    DMWS SG, a sub-group of V/TC&C SIC, steers research and development around train movement authority in times of primary signalling failure.  The project has evaluated the economic and technical case for a proposed solution, and we will now focus on completing an operational trial to demonstrate a functional degraded mode working system for the GB railway.
