Alcatel to install train-control equipment on Amsterdam high-speed line


Alcatel Transport Automation Solutions recently was awarded a $39.5 million contract to install a European Train Control System (ETCS), Level 2 and interlocking outdoor equipment for a new line between Amsterdam’s and Belgium’s border.

ETCS is designed to transmit train movement rights and other specific information via GSM-R from a radio block center.

Scheduled to open in 2007, the High-Speed Line Zuid is part of a project to expand the line, and connect Amsterdam and Rotterdam with Antwerp, Brussels and Paris.
