The program to implement SSC (System Support Conduct) and SCMT (Train Control System) systems on trains continues, according to the Ministerial Directive no. 81 / T of 19th March 2008, in order to provide the network with a system able to increase safety standards in case of the driver's mistake. Planning activities and installations have been carried out during 2013, along the Camerlata-Saronno, Saronno and Malnate-Brescia-Iseo railway line. The activation is expected in year 2014. Furthermore, the installation of the Sub Board System (SSB) proceeds on the TAF type trians, with a progress of 13 trains on 26 and forecasting the equipment conclusion by 2015.
