Alstom Train Control System
The commissioning for this project is scheduled for the end of 2018. Metrolix have previously awarded Alstom a contract, back in 2014, to equip the Union Station Corridor (USRC) with a new signalling system.
Alstom will be providing their Iconis control centre solution to integrate the customer’s rail network into a single control centre. Metrolinx will then be able to view their entire network, and be able to optimise each train movement.
We are pleased that Metrolinx has entrusted Alstom with this new contract to supply an integrated control centre for its regional train service. This is a continuing partnership with Metrolinx that will bring secure and efficient operations to the network,said Angelo Guercioni, Vice-President and Customer Director, Canada, Alstom Transport.
