Metrorail says the first phase of their re-signalling project in the Western cape has…

Metrorail says the first phase of their re-signalling project in the Western cape has been completed ahead of time. Spokesperson Riana Scott says platforms 13 to 23 at Cape Town Station were tested overnight and are in operation. The re-signalling of platforms 1 to 6 and number 24 will be done next month. The refurbishment of signalling equipment at the various platforms are being done in phases to limit disruption of the service. More than 150 trains arrive and depart from Cape Town Station daily. Scott says light current copper bearing cables have been replaced with fibre optic and signal lights now sport LED lights instead of incandescent bulbs. “It’s not only the signals and lights themselves, but its also all the infrastructure that assists the trains changing directions; then these huge apparatus cases that house literally hundreds of copper wires that regulate the old signal system, has been done away with completely. So you won’t find those large boxes next to the railway tracks anymore.” (Photo: The nerve centre from where signalling is monitored)
