Ferrocarril Central of Uruguay is the most ambitious railway project of the last 50 years in the country. The objective is the total reconstruction of half of the trunk line of the railway network, the Montevideo-Paso de los Toros line. The first stage of dynamic testing has been successfully completed on a 20-kilometer section between Florida station, Florida Norte and Apartadero La Cruz.
One of the most noteworthy features of the project is its signalling. Uruguay will become the third country in South America to have the European ERTMS rail traffic management system, after Brazil and Chile, which it will surpass in the number of kilometers equipped. In consortium with Revenga Smart Solutions, CAF Signalling is responsible for carrying out the signaling. In addition to the ERTMS N1 system, 10 electronic interlockings and 20 object controllers, 175 level crossings, local operating stations and a Centralized Traffic Control Center have been installed on the 273 kilometers of track.
