Posted on May 22, 2009

Ansaldo STS USA reached a $13 million subcontract agreement with Wellington Power Corp. of Pittsburgh for the Port Authority of Allegheny County's (PAAC) North Shore Connector project to extend the light rail system 1.2 miles.

The extension will connect the downtown area of Pittsburgh with the city's North Shore via an underground tunnel beneath the Allegheny River. 

The contract involves the design and implementation of a system interlocking and wayside signal system for the new relay rooms at Allegheny Station and North Side Station, and modifications in the existing Gateway Station relay room and the Wood Street Station interlocking relay room.

Ansaldo will also deliver a communications subsystem that includes fiber optic transmission, variable message signage, digital video surveillance, and supervisory control and data acquisition, as well as make design modifications for the existing Operations Control Center to support the added facilities and equipment.
