Alstom wins Italian high-speed signalling contract

Alstom is to deliver signalling and infrastructure works on the Treviglio-Brescia section of the Milan-Verona high-speed line.

The 20 million euro contract was awarded to the French engineering giant by the infrastructure arm of the FS Group.

The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2016.

The 39 km Treviglio-Brescia line will cross 20 cities in the provinces of Milan, Bergamo and Brescia.

An additional 12 kms will link it to the existing line, and a further 7 kms of dedicated tracks will reach the Brescia station.

As a member of the Saturno consortium, Alstom has produced and installed the most advanced signalling systems for high-speed trains in Italy, such as the Rome-Naples line – the first very high speed line in the world to be equipped with ERTMS level 2 – and the Bologna-Florence line, which runs almost completely through tunnels.
