Ircon signs deal with Sri Lankan Railways for signalling system

Railway PSU Ircon has entered into an agreement with Sri Lankan Railways for installation of signalling and telecommunication system on the rail network in that country.

The project, to be executed in the northern province of Sri Lanka at a cost of USD 86.51 million will enhance safety at level crossings and provide GPS-based station clock system, and public address system etc. at major stations, the PSU said a statement.
The work will cover the entire section in Anuradhapura – Kankesanturai and Medawachchiya -Tallai Mannar Sections covering a length of 313 kms and 28 stations.

An MoU was signed in this regard in Colombo yesterday between GM of Sri Lanka Railways B A P Ariyarathna and MD of Ircon Mohan Tiwari.

Signalling work will involve provision of centralised control panel, interlocking colour light signal with electrically operated points, and train detection system.

Ircon has earlier also executed railway projects in Sri Lanka, successfully completing the Galle-Matara Section of Coastal Railway Line in February, the statement said.
