USA: Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority has awarded Ansaldo STS a $53·2m design-build contract to install communications-based train control on light rail routes 101 and 102, also known as the Media-Sharon Hill Lines.

The scope includes civil works and upgrading existing signalling on the 1 581 mm gauge routes totalling 19·2 km. When completed, operations on both routes will be managed from SEPTA’s integrated control centre.

Ansaldo STS is still working to install Positive Train Control on the 13 SEPTA Regional Rail lines.
