Bombardier Transportation is proudly marking a quarter century of rail control success in Bilbao, a milestone made possible after completing the recent signalling upgrade at Urduliz station on the city’s Metro’s Line 1. The signaling system has been developed and delivered by the Center of Excellence in Signalling Systems located in San Sebastián de los Reyes (Madrid).
Thanks to the latest functionality, the new EBI Lock system already installed, will allow to increase the operational efficiency and capacity, maintaining the security level of the line. In addition, the project has improved traffic flow above ground by replacing Bilbao Metro’s last level crossing with a new underground section.
This recent upgrade project for Urdiliz station, awarded in 2015, was carried out under an infrastructure improvement programme led by Biscay Transport Consortium.
