CEGELEC will be showing signalling systems developed to control barrier-protected level crossings on light rail lines.

The technology has been chosen for Lyon’s LEA tram route T3 which will run between Part-Dieu and Meyzieu. The route will have 26 level crossings over 14·7 km, and the high commercial speed planned for the route means sophisticated signalling adapted from heavy rail technology will be required.

Cegelec has supplied 13 French cities with urban transport equipment, and is establishing itself as an international player through projects in Athens, Praha and Torino as well as in Cairo, Mexico City and a number of Asian cities.
