RESIGNALLING of Latvian Railways’ main terminus is to be completed in 2000 under a contract with Adtranz Signal, signed at a ceremony in Riga on April 29 attended by LDZ Director-General Andris Zorgevics, Deputy DG Rihards Peders, and the Swedish ambassador Hans Magnusson.
Adtranz Signal will supply an Ebilock 950 electronic interlocking to control 150 points and 300 signals at Riga passenger station and at Tornakalns across the Daugava river bridge. Computers, local control and supervisory equipment and route indicators will be installed by Adtranz, using engineering resources in Sweden, Poland and Russia. Control equipment will come from Finland and route indicators from Great Britain. The project is to be funded entirely by Swedish banks and export credits. o
