US&S to supply signal, control systems below WTC site


Three projects are under way to restore or repair Port Authority Trans Hudson Corp. facilities and track that were damaged in the Sept. 11 World Trade Center attacks: Phase I Downtown Restoration Program, the temporary World Trade Center Station and Exchange Place Station.

Union Switch & Signal Inc. May 28 announced it had been awarded a contract to provide signaling and control systems as part of the projects.

US&S will provide its Microlok® wayside control system, Genisys ® II non-vital logic emulators, vital and non-vital interface circuits, and 60-hertz track circuits. The systems, which will be required for rail service to be restored under the Trade Center site, are scheduled to be in service by Nov. 1, 2003.
