Train Control System Gets Green Light

The Herald reports:

Signals turned green yesterday on Auckland’s $1 billion-plus rail electrification drive, as KiwiRail signed a hefty contract to provide long-suffering passengers with an ultra-modern train control system…the signing of a $90 million deal between KiwiRail and Westinghouse Rail Systems Australia…priority will be given to laying new signals between Otahuhu, Britomart and Morningside by the end of 2010.

This is welcome news to all rail commuters.  The article also has a handy list of the  13 signal and points failures so far this year.
