\r\nWith the signalling programme now DKr 4.4bn ($US 630m) over budget and up to three years behind schedule, the auditor says Banedanmark had \u201cinadequate control\u201d over the project and argues that the Ministry of Transport should have been more critical of the infrastructure manager\u2019s information about progress.\r\nThe report states that Banedanmark and the ministry underestimated the complexity and the scale of the work involved in the signalling programme, noting that there are still \u201csignificant risks of increasing costs and delays, which require strict control of the programme.\u201d\r\nThe auditor says Banedanmark\u2019s management of the project has been based on \u201cmisleading and inaccurate\u201d information on the programme\u2019s progress and costs.\r\nThe report also notes that the Ministry of Transport has been aware of serious problems in the programme since autumn 2014, but failed to obtain information from Banedanmark on the true extent of the problems facing the programme.\r\nBanedanmark published a revised timetable for the implementation of the signalling programme last October, deferring the completion date for the national rollout of ETCS Level 2 from 2021 to 2023. The deadline for implementation of CBTC on the Copenhagen S-Train network was also pushed back to 2021.\r\n\u201cWe have had problems providing adequate evidence of the programme\u2019s progress and our financial system did not have sufficient transparency,\u201d Banedanmark\u2019s signalling programme director Mr Jan Schneider-Tilli said in a statement on January 25. \u201cWe are in the process of change, with full transparency in our financial management. In addition, we are working with our suppliers to ensure the programme makes progress, with adequate documentation to show this.\u201d\r\nThe main line rollout will start with the Roskilde - K\u00f8ge - N\u00e6stved and Frederikshavn - Lindholm - Hobro lines, followed by the Copenhagen - Ringsted line. All three routes will be equipped with ERTMS by 2018.
