3.9 Signalling and Telecommunication

Signalling & Telecommunication (S&T) is the nerve centre forefficient and safe operation of trains on Indian Railways. There has been a significantevolution of technology in this stream leading to the adoption of most modern AutomaticTrain Protection (ATP) system in the present times.

The technology driven advancement is focused to ensure 100% safety intrain operations and enable enhanced train speeds. The objective is to optimize overallefficiency of train services and increase line capacity of rail sections.

S&T systems rely on technical inputs from Original EquipmentsManufacturers (OEMs) and different system providers on the strength of close coordinationbetween the design teams of RVNL/ Railways and the contracting agencies. RVNL has accordedhighest priority to S&T works under its spread thus leading to commissioning of stateof the art signalling system and best in class facilities. The nationwide impact ofpandemic has been overcome with sheer grit and determination by RVNL with commendablesuccess. Team S&T has played a pivotal role in attaining the objectives setcommissioning targeted signalling works associated with doubling tripling Intermediateblock signalling Rail Electrification Interlocking of mid-section level crossings andYard remodelling.

The result oriented approach of RVNL has exemplified a very significantoutcome in terms of the works executed during 2020-21 in the domain of Signalling andTelecommunication. RVNL has executed 182 Nos. of Non-interlocking of stations forcommissioning of various works during the year. 66 New Electronic interlocking; 04 NewPanel interlocking; and alterations in existing 51 electronic interlocking; 54 panelinterlocking and 07 Mechanical signalling stations of doubling/ tripling projects has beencompleted. 118 Stations of Railway Electrification Projects; Interlocking of 18mid-section level crossing gates and 23 IBS/Auto signals have been commissioned. Crowningthese achievements is the commissioning of Telecom work comprising optic fibre cable and6 Squad cable to a length of 1450 km on IR during the year.

Tech excellence has been the hallmark of S&T system in vogue.Signal design to international standards has rendered performance par excellence on IndianRailways the result of job delegated to RVNL. This excellent performance of RVNL'sS&T team has borne its impact in terms of approval to signal design documents by RVNLfor Stations upto 50 routes for doubling and electrification works earning acknowledgmentfrom the Railway Board which has put the onus on RVNL to undertake the task upto 75 routestations on West Central and Western Railway. This will expedite the design approval ofsignalling documents considerably.

The Signal & Telecom infra includes indigenously built state of artelectronic interlocking with centralized architecture installed at crossing stations; techinduced dual visual display units for centralized operations of signals and points inStation Master's rooms; fully air-conditioned aesthetically designed electronicsignal maintainers rooms in new station building to signify the best of work environment.Micro processer based digital data loggers have been installed at stations to monitor andrecord the status of rail signal control and interlocking relays which detectsmaintenance issues for immediate redress. SMPS based integrated power supply system isinstalled to act as single power solution for all signalling equipment and installationsat stations. Programmable vital logic controllers have been installed to ensure seamlessnetwork interlocking in entire signalling operations.

The cutting edge factors which have been the core to S&T infra ofRVNL include advanced axle counters which detect train movement in automatic signallingsections; universal fail safe block interface equipments in Station Master's consolefor interfacing digital transmission of signalling information from one end of a blocksection to the other. IP based Multi Protocol Label Communication System has been put touse in tracking train operations. Value based inputs include integrated LED lightingsystem for signals; Video surveillance of prime Railway areas; Highly sensitive firedetection system; OFC based communication system linked to Railway Stations and levellingcrossing gates; advanced GPS based integrated auto public address system; dedicated 24fibre OFC and 6 Q cables for reliability in signalling and communication; A - classlighting protection system and electrically operated levelling crossing gates with energyefficient features.

Signalling and Telecommunication is sure to play a critical role inleading Indian Railways forward on the tracks of progress to equal the best Rail systemsaround the world.

3.12 Kolkata Metro Projects

3.12.1 Indian Railway transferred the works of four major projects forextension of Kolkata Metro to RVNL in March 2010 viz.

• Joka-BBD Bag via Majerhat (16.72 km)

• Dum Dum Airport-New Garia via Rajarhat (32 km)

• Baranagar - Barrackpore & Dakshineswar (14.5 km)

• Noapara (Ex.)-Baranagar (2.6 km)

3.12.2 As such RVNL was entrusted to build Metro corridors of about65 km in Kolkata without any survey of underground utilities and without any DPR (DetailedProject Report). DPR is a pre-requisite for planning of Metro corridors in urban areas.RVNL first engaged RITES for preparation of DPR. Late arrival of metro extension work inthe congested and unplanned city was a challenge and required a lot of meticulous planningfor identification and removal of encroachments and other impediments to startconstruction activity of Metro. The land acquisition in Kolkata/West Bengal poses a bigproblem causing delayed construction of Metro corridors and other infrastructuralprojects. The issues like removal of encroachments and relocation of utilities along withtraffic diversion have affected the execution. RVNL has taken all possible action forimplementation and early commissioning of Metro projects for larger interest of people ofKolkata.

3.12.3 The foundation stone for Joka-BBD Bag project was laid byHer Excellency President of India on 22.01.2010. Subsequently 2 packages for viaduct and2 packages for stations were awarded in December 2010 and April 2012 respectively. Thisentire Metro corridor has been planned in 2 phases i.e. in 1st phase from Joka to Majerhatelevated section and in the 2nd phase from Mominpur to BBD Bag as underground section.Originally sanctioned as elevated Material Modification is now sanctioned by Ministry ofRailways for underground system. For construction of Mominpur station permission fromArmy HQ has been received only on 19.04.2017.

Joka - Majerhat (Phase-I) Metro Corridor

3.12.4 The Metro corridor from Joka to Majerhat (Phase-I) has madesubstantial progress. In fact from Joka Depot to Taratala (8.80 km) there is nodiscontinuity and stations are almost ready. The major impediments beyond Taratalanamely Rehabilitation India building has been dismantled and the long pending permissionfrom Mint has been received from Ministry of Finance and the viaduct work on that stretchis completed. The next hurdle was construction of Majerhat station. Due to collapse of oldROB at Majerhat on 4th Sept 2018 the construction of Majerhat station came to a halt asState Government did to give permission for the construction work. After the commissioningof new ROB at Majerhat in Nov 2020 NOC has since been received from State Government andconstruction of Majerhat Metro station has started in full swing and is expected to becompleted in FY year 202122. Beyond Majerhat the Joka to Majerhat Metro Corridor will beextended up to Esplanade with an underground section from Mominpur ramp. The GC-cum-PMCcontract for the underground section has been awarded recently and the undergroundconstruction tender for tunnelling by TBM will be called and finalized in next 9months' time so that the underground work can start in full swing.

Since this Metro stretch is a standalone system a

New Garia-Airport Metro Corridor

3.12.5. In the section of New Garia to Rabindra Tirtha of Dum DumAirport-New Garia project initially 4 packages of Viaduct were awarded on 21.10.2011.About 17 km viaduct has been completed. The contracts for 21 stations (3 packages) wereawarded on 05.03.2014. Out of 21 stations station land for one (Technopolis Metrostation) is yet to be handed over due to stay Order by the Court. For construction ofstations 6481 piles 813 pile caps 789 piers & 677 pier cap have been cast. Theproject got delayed because of issues relating to land acquisition traffic diversionutility diversion and other permission

Maintenance Depot is a pre-requisite. However due to non-availabilityof land (24.48 hectare) the tender for the depot was discharged twice once in February2013 and again on October 2017. At present land to the extent of 94% in Kolkata city hasbeen acquired and land development with boundary wall is in advance stage. Contract forconstruction of maintenance depot has also been awarded and is in progress.

over busy EM Bypass road. Further change of alignment proposed byState Government where unauthorized buildings were constructed even after the GazetteNotification for Metro construction and other impediments like shifting of marketstraffic guard raising of 220 KV overhead line removal of encroachments etc. slowed downthe progress of work. Substantial part of these impediments have been either removed andthe balance are on the way of being removed. The alignment from City Centre- II to Airportis now approved by State Government after long persuasion and contract for construction ofMetro beyond Titumir to Airport has been awarded on 18.01.2021 The work is underprogress.

Noapara - Baranaaar - Dakshineswar Metro

3.12.6 For Baranagar-Barrackpore & Dakshineswar andNoapara-Baranagar the work was planned in 2 phases i.e. the first phase being Noapara-Baranagar-Dakshineswar and in the second phase

For the second phase of this Metro corridor i.e.Baranagar-Barrackpore an MoU was signed between State Government Metro Railway and RVNLin October 2011 where it was decided that RVNL shall commence the work of Metro viaductconstruction on BT Road after commissioning of 64" pipeline under the BT Road withthe closure of 60" and 42" diameter pipelines. The work of new pipeline has beencommissioned but RVNL has not been able to start the work due to non-compliance ofprovisions of tripartite MoU by the State Government. State Government in their letterfrom Baranagar-Barrackpore. The first phase i.e. from Noapara to Dakshineswar the Metrocorridor has been commissioned and inaugurated by Hon'ble Prime Minister on22.02.2021 and dedicated to the Nation for public use of 03.05.2018 had proposed forchange of alignment i.e. through Kalyani Expressway. Ministry of Railways (CRB) hadresponded this proposal by writing to Chief Secretary GoWB that under such a situationit will become a new project requiring fresh sanction. RVNL on its part had requestedState Government vide letter dated 19.11.2018 to lay a new pipeline through anotheralignment for which RVNL would bear the cost. However State Government is to yet examinethe proposal and give their consent. As a result work on this phase of the Metro corridorcould not be initiated.

3.12.7 Phase Commissioning of Metro Project:

(i) Noarpara - Baranagar - Dakshineswar:

With sustained efforts at progressing with the work while eliminatingall impediments such as encroachments shifting of utilities by the State Government etc.the state of art Metro Corridor was completed commissioned and inaugurated by Hon'blePrime Minister on 22.02.2021. The project has been commissioned inspite of the prevailingCOVID 19 Pandemic situation.

(ii) Joka-Taratala: 8.80 km of viaduct in a continuous stretch fromJoka Depot has been completed. Major structures and stations have been substantiallycompleted at Joka Thakurpukur Sakher Bazar Behala Chowrasta Behala Bazaar Taratala.It is expected to complete the first phase i.e. Joka to Taratala by March'2022.

(iii) New Garia-Hemanta Mukheriee in Airport corridor: 5.75 kmviaduct including stations portions are now in final stage except a gap before KaviSukanta stations where the work is going in full swing after obtaining NOC recently byState Government. The track laying and other system works are in progress. It is expectedto complete this first phase by March' 2022.

3.13 Accidents

During 2020-21 no accident was reported from any of the project sitesof RVNL.

3.14 ADB funded projects:

The first ADB loan (IND-1981) sanctioned for "Railway SectorImprovement" was closed on 31.12.2011. A 2nd aDb Loan has been sanctioned for fundingof 5 projects namely:

• Raipur-Titlagarh doubling

• Sambalpur-Titlagarh doubling

• Hospet-Tinaighat doubling

• Daund-Gulbarga doubling

• Pune-Guntakal Railway Electrification

The funding by ADB requires compliance of various loan covenants onresettlement and rehabilitation of project affected persons procurement of works andstores following international competitive bidding and implementation of plans formitigation of social and environmental impact norms. A Multi Tranche Financing Facility of$ 500 million has been agreed to by ADB. The loan agreement for first Tranche (Loan No.2793-IND) of this MFF for an amount of $ 150 million was signed in July 2012 and the loanagreement for second Tranche (Loan No. 3108- IND) of this MFF for an amount of $ 130million was signed in February 2014 the loan was closed on 20.12.2019 Project Agreement& Loan Agreement against ADB loan No. 3623-IND (Railway Sector Investment Program-Tranche III) for an amount of $ 130 million have been signed on 16.3.2018.

During 2020-21 an amount of Rs 318.67 crore equivalent to $ 43.15million has been disbursed by ADB under Loan 3623-IND.

3.15 Contracting:

As the size of projects being executed by RVNL is quite large toensure fast award and execution of projects RVNL invites tenders consisting of multiplepackages. Each tender may consist of up to 3 contract packages. This approach has a numberof advantages such as:
