Ghaziabad (Metro Rail News): The installation of signalling equipment for operations of RRTS trains has picked up pace in the Priority Section of India’s 1st RRTS corridor (Delhi-Ghaziabad-Meerut).
The National Capital Region Transport Corporation Ltd. (NCRTC) is implementing hybrid Level 3 technology of the European Train Control System, one of the most advanced signalling & train control systems in the world.
This will be for 1st time in the world that a combination of latest ETCS Standard, latest Interlocking & Automatic Train Operation (ATO) over Long-Term Evolution (LTE) radio will be deployed. It will enable higher frequency of trains, better headways & thus increasing throughput.
The 17 km Priority Section, between Sahibabad to Duhai, is targeted to be commissioned by 2023 and the full corridor by 2025. The civil work on the Priority Section, having a total of 5 stations, is nearing completion.
