Rail safety

In recent years, there has been a proliferation in requirements from rail authorities regarding standard methods for handling and documenting railway safety. National and EU requirements based on the Common Safety Method (CSM) regulation and TSI’s (Technical Specifications for Interoperability) now form the basis for railway safety process and documentation.

These new developments have led to a significant demand from clients seeking assistance in aligning project processes and support for complying with the processes required by CSM regulations.

Our safety considerations for projects are integrated into the Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) framework. We also offer specific consultancy within RAM, ranging from establishing a RAM policy, to RAM management, detailed RAM analysis, and RAM performance monitoring.

Ramboll’s partnership approach ensures that work is carried out in close cooperation with authorities, assessors, Notified Bodies (NoBo), operators, and railway undertakers.


Ramboll’s consultancy services regarding the existing metro lines encompassed all railway infrastructure disciplines. For Cityringen, in joint venture with Atkins, we are also responsible for rolling stock (the train fleet) and a large automated train depot which houses maintenance facilities and the control centre for the entire line.

The Copenhagen Metro

It was a groundbreaking event when the Copenhagen Metro opened its first fully automated, driverless metro in 2002. Since then, it has become the most natural thing in the world for the citizens of Copenhagen to travel at speeds of 80km/h 18 metres below street level.
