The Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut Rapid Rail Corridor will be equipped with modern signaling systems. Like the best train control systems in Australia, Taiwan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia, the same technology will be used on this track.
About Rs 910 crore will be spent on the design, supply and installation of the signaling, train control and telecommunication systems of the corridor.
The Rapid Rail Corridor being constructed between Delhi-Meerut will be equipped with signaling system on the lines of overseas. Its tender has been given to Alstom, a company that produces electric locomotives for the Indian Railways of 12 thousand horsepower.
This will include the design, supply, testing and commissioning of signaling and train control, supervision, platform screen doors and telecommunication systems.
According to Alstom Asia Pacific senior vice president, India’s first rail line will be set up with a futureproof signaling system.
Separate corridor will be prepared for passengers who do not have trouble while changing the train, which will ensure better movement of passengers. The advantage of this signaling system will also be that the train will make maximum trips. This will reduce the waiting time of the passengers.
Digital interlocking and automatic train operation (ATO) will be used. Train control and supervision will be done continuously through ETCS Hybrid Level-3 radio-based signaling system.
It is the most effective train control system in the world, which is superior in terms of traffic capacity, punctuality, reliability, safety, maintenance expenses and energy saving. This system enables trains to run at high speeds without signals on the edges of the tracks.
