ROMANIA: As part of the Asocierea RailWorks consortium with Aktor and Arcada, Alstom has been awarded a €40m contract to undertake electrification and resignalling for the modernisation of the 22 km Ilteu – Gurasada section of the Rhine – Danube Corridor in western Romania.

‘Alstom teams are going to implement ERTMS Level 2 signalling systems, including GSM-R and electronic interlocking, as well as the electrification feed lines and traction substation’, said Gabriel Stanciu, General Manager for Romania, Bulgaria & Moldova, on December 15.

‘The project comes at the right time, when another similar project, carried out for the Micăsasa – Coșlariu rail section, is coming to an end’, he added. ‘This new contract will ensure continuity of activities in the area and the highly-effective implementation of the new project, which can start immediately.’
