The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) has awarded a R900m ($131.8m) contract to Siemens to build a new signal centre in Gauteng province, South Africa, and to upgrade signalling systems.

The scope of the project includes construction of the Gauteng Nerve Centre and the installation of electronic interlocking signalling systems at 15 stations across the country.
Under the contract, Siemens will supply a new interlocking system, including sensors and traffic lights, which will send information to a control centre where it will tell the operator whether the track is occupied.
The project is expected to improve efficiency and safety on the passenger rail network and reduce accidents on the tracks; more than 1,000 people were injured in train accidents in the province in April and May.
The nerve centre will centralise information within the passenger rail network in Gauteng.
The project is expected to be completed over the next five years, according to businessday.co.za.
