CERTIFER completed the independent safety assessment of the Hitachi CBTC used for Hangshao Line in the city of Shaoxing (China)
The Hangshao Line is the first line in revenue service using Core CBTC version 4.6.0. As an inter-city line, it connects Hangzhou and Shaoxing city with a total length of 20.3km and 10 stations.
