Consultancy and technology firm Indra has signed a contract with Turkish State Railways to implement a high-speed train management system and a planning system for its rail network.

Valued at €43m, this project will develop a new control centre in Ankara to run operational planning for Turkey’s 12,000km railroad network, which includes conventional lines and high-speed tracks.

"This project will develop a new control centre in Ankara to run operational planning for Turkey’s 12,000km railroad network, which includes conventional lines and high-speed tracks."

Indra’s DaVinci rail traffic management platform will support the country’s high-speed rail network, including the Ankara-Istanbul and Ankara-Konya lines.

This system includes regulation systems, automatic routers, communications, control panels and remote monitoring.

Indra will also work on the traffic planning and management of Turkey’s high-speed lines currently under construction, which are scheduled to operate by 2016.

This will improve operating plans and optimising train circulation to have greater control over the position of physical vehicles.

Indra’s planning system aims to modernise the current rail network and the planning for technological requirements, in order to enable Turkish Rail to design and size all elements required to build new lines and redesign existing tracks.
