- January 09, 2019
Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) has successfully commenced the signalling & integrated testing trials by moving the Metro train in the balance section upto Munshipulia. The integrated testing and trials are for smooth operation of the trains having interface with signalling, telecommunication, track and traction.
The integrated testing of different systems, signalling, track and traction is performed at different speeds on the elevated viaduct and inside the tunnel under different operating scenario.
The trains have been provided with the latest state-of-the-art Communication Based Train Control System (CBTC) Signalling system with Automatic Train Protection (ATP) for automatic braking to prevent any collision. The Automatic Train Supervision (ATS) system has been provided to ensure automatic management of train movement by Automatic Route Setting and Automatic Train Regulation by supervising the train movement continuously and optimizing the train movements in case of abnormalities.
This integrated signalling trial will also test for the Automatic Train Protection (ATP) and other aspects of Communication Based Train Control System (CBTC). The signalling testing is also being verified and validated by an international Independent Safety Assessor (ISA).
