One of the most crucial elements of the many that make up a railway system is signalling. Both the control and administration of trains, as well as the safety of train movement, depend on them.
Many signalling and train control technologies have evolved throughout the years, creating the highly technological and complicated business we have today.
Trains must always retain a safe distance from one another thanks to a system called railway signalling, sometimes written railway signalling (AE).
Trains are particularly vulnerable to collisions because they travel on fixed rails. The massive weight and inertia of a train, which makes it challenging to stop abruptly when striking an impediment, enhance this sensitivity.
The South Africa Rail Signaling Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
At three South African train stations, Siemens Mobility has installed and operationalized an automated signalling system. The three stations are Pretoria, Braamfontein, and Johannesburg Park Station.
One of the biggest stations in Africa, Johannesburg Park Station has 114 sets of points, 129 signals, and 16 operable platforms. Pretoria has 105 signals and 69 sets of points, compared to Braamfontein’s 87 signals and 67 sets of points.
Siemens observed that there were few commuter service interruptions when the new system went online at all three stops.
Modern signalling and interlocking systems will boost productivity, boost operating frequency, and cut down on delays. In order to commission and install new signalling and control systems across Gauteng, Siemens Mobility and PRASA have been collaborating.
