Indian Railway is all set to install a modern signalling system on the 850-km long section between Mathura and Vadodara. The project is expected to cost around Rs 2,000 crore. According to sources quoted in an IANS report, the proposal to introduce an automatic train protection (ATP) system, which is a state-of-the-art European Train Controlling System (ETCS) level 2 is being firmed up and will shortly be sent to the Cabinet for approval. This modern signalling system prevents the collision of two trains on the same railway track and the system also updates locomotive pilots on the condition of signals ahead even when the visibility is poor due to fog or other reasons.
