POSITIVE TRAIN CONTROL
Positive Train Control (PTC)
PTC deployment is mandated by the Federal government and is key to ensuring that our national railroads achieve their goal of zero accidents. The Federally-mandated PTC infrastructure implementation is aimed at achieving:
Safe train separation (or collision avoidance).
Temporary speed restrictions.
Rail worker wayside safety.
TC has completed PTC infrastructure projects for MTA Metro-North Railroad and MTA Long Island Railroad. The MNR PTC Infrastructure project spanned its entire rail network, where TC overcame significant logistical and sequence-of-work challenges.
