Alstom to replace track circuits of five MTR lines and Airport Express in Hong Kong
Alstom to replace track circuits of five MTR lines and Airport Express in Hong Kong
From: Think Railways
Date: 15/03/16

Alstom has been awarded a contract worth €28 million by MTR Corporation to replace the track circuits of five MTR lines and Airport Express in Hong Kong’s metro network by early 2019.

Metro track circuits, which are part of the signalling system, are used to ensure the integrity of the rails and detect the position of the trainsets on the lines. The original track circuits for the six lines were supplied and installed by Alstom between 1985 and 1998. These will now be replaced with Alstom’s latest generation of track circuits to function for another 20 years. No interruptions will occur on the lines, as the works will be performed during the non-traffic hours.

This project will be led by Alstom Hong Kong and supported by the Alstom signalling teams in Saint-Ouen, France.
