French transport group Alstom has installed the signalling system on MTR-operated West Island metro line in Hong Kong.

The metro line, which began passenger service in December 2014, features Alstom’s signalling solutions to enhance the development of the western district of Hong Kong.

The West Island metro line is an extension of the existing 13km-long Island Line, which connects Sheung Wan to Chai Wan, with three new stations that would serve approximately 230,000 people in the western district.

"The successful operation of the West Island line is an important milestone for Alstom’s long-term development in the local market."

Alstom Transport Asia Pacific senior vice-president Dominique Pouliquen said: "The successful operation of the West Island line is an important milestone for Alstom’s long-term development in the local market, bringing great confidence in us for the execution of future projects in Hong Kong and Asia."

As part of a contract signed in 2010, Alstom was responsible for the design, manufacture, testing and commissioning of the signalling system, as well as training and performance demonstration.

The company now provided signalling trackside services and equipment which include interlocking, automated train control and integrated automatic train supervision systems to interface with the existing Island line.
