CAF Signalling has completed the commissioning of the two new interlockings at Celje station, in Slovenia, as part of the signalling improvement work on the line between Zidani Most and Šentilj, on the Austrian border.
The commissioning of the interlockings, using CAF Signalling's own technology with the collaboration of local partner Iskra, took just 18 days. During this time, the line, particularly important for freight transport, has been in continuous service without any reduction in the usual traffic, which has reached up to 190 trains a day.
The new signalling at Celje station includes a new system of 97 points, 188 axle counters, 166 signals and two level crossings which has been incorporated into a new operator's station in Celje and integrated into the Centralised Traffic Control.
The completion of the project on the Zidani Most-Šentilj line is scheduled for 2025 and the work is co-financed by the European Union as part of the route runs along the Pan-European Corridors V and X and on Corridor 6 of the European Union TEN-T project.
