The Indian Railways has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with RailTel Enterprises Limited (REL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of RailTel Corporation of India Limited, to upgrade its signalling system on four busiest sections.

According to RailTel, the project would include setting up automatic train protection system with long-term evolution (LTE)-based mobile train radio communication system (MTRC) along with a provision of electronic interlocking (indoor), wherever required.

Further, the train control system modernisation project will be implemented on some of the busiest routes on Indian Railway with heavy traffic, RailTel stated.

The four routes to be upgraded are: 165 km renigunta-yerraguntla section of the south central railway, 145 km vizianagaram-palasa section of the east coast railway, 155 km stretch on jhansi-bina route of the north central railway and a 175 km route on the nagpur-badnera section of the central railway.

The estimated cost of the pilot project is Rs 16.09 billion and it is expected to be completed in 24 months.

The project would help in improving safety and reducing congestion in these rail networks. It will also increase line capacity, improve punctuality and increase average speed of trains.
