MTA Long Island Rail Road (N.Y.) awarded a contract to Union Switch & Signal for a vital microprocessor-based signal system for the New Jamaica Interlocking.
The new solid-state interlocking system is needed to replace 70-year-old equipment.
A key benefit of this modernization program is the expanded event recording and diagnostic capabilities of the combined interlocking system.
Other benefits include reduced parts count, floor space and concentration of the control networks in a single location.
The project is scheduled to be completed in 2005.
