The design of the project is expected to begin in January 2019. Project management will be conducted by Alstom, with installation taking about two years. The ETCS Level 2 signalling equipment will be installed on ISR’s entire existing rolling stock fleet, composed of 192 vehicles, with an option for another 34 vehicles.

“We are delighted that ISR has placed its confidence in Alstom. Passengers can be sure that they will be travelling safely with a state-of-the-art technical solution. Alstom has long contributed and wishes to continue contributing to the development of the railway industry in Israel.

ETCS Level 2 optimises line capacity in complete safety by anticipating and adapting the speed of the trains through continuous train control and supervision via a radio-based signalling system.
