Metro-North Says It Completed Signal Upgrades

Metro-North Railroad said today it has completed permanent changes to its signal system to ensure automatic speed enforcement at five critical curves and five moveable bridges in New York and Connecticut, including one in Westport, more than five months ahead of schedule.

It said with the completion of work at the Devon Bridge in Stratford on Thursday, all the signal modifications ordered by the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) in December are now complete, well before the Sept. 1, 2014 FRA deadline.

“The complete implementation of the requirements of the FRA’s Emergency Order 29, issued on December 8, 2013, brings us another step closer to a safer railroad, which is our number one goal,” said Metro-North President Joseph Giulietti, who started on Feb. 10. “We will continue to take all necessary steps to restore Metro-North to greatness.”

Signal engineers first designed modifications to the circuitry at each location by calculating where and when speed limits should be reduced, Metro-North said. Then signal maintainers had to reconfigure wiring along the tracks that sends the signal to the train to control its speed. Finally, extensive testing was then performed to confirm that the changes were working as designed.
