Egyptian National Railways is embarking on an ambitious programme to modernise its rail network. Signalling upgrades are a key part of this programme: high-performance signalling makes it possible to improve safety, capacity and reliability at the same time.
Modernisation of the 208km Cairo-Alexandria corridor – Egypt’s busiest line – highlights what can be achieved. Thales’ signalling upgrade has made it possible to increase train speeds by 20km/h to 160km/h and has reduced the time interval between trains from 10 minutes to 5, boosting the frequency of services.
The solution includes electronic interlocking, wayside equipment, telecommunications and a Centralised Traffic Control system.
Our signalling technologies significantly increase the capacity, safety and security of your main line rail network. Benefit from improved energy efficiency and a more fluid and seamless movement of people and freight.
Thales has an unmatched experience in ensuring metro lines run at peak efficiency. Thales provides metro systems the ability to increase flexibility and regularity, while reducing delays and intervals between trains during peak hours.
