Siemens is modernising the Dusseldorf Light Railway with new signalling and control systems.

Siemens is to equip Dusseldorf Light Railway with new signalling system to replace the life expired equipment the 11km system was built with.

The Trainguard ZUB 222 train protection system will allow semi automated operation with speed supervision of the driver’s manual acceleration and braking. It will be supervised by Controlguide Vicos OC operations control system, and the current relay interlockings are set to be replaced by electronic Trackguard Sicas ECC equivalents.

Installation work will be phased to limit service disruption, with completion scheduled for Autumn 2018.
