Thales technology is put into service on the new Chamartín – Torrejón de Velasco section

This is a key section, since it means the connection of all the high-speed corridors linking the north and the south, creating a unique and transversal network between the main cities of the country.

Thales executed the works for the signalling installations, train protection systems, fixed telecommunications, video surveillance and centralised traffic control on the section from Chamartín to Torrejón de Velasco. The project includes the Atocha-Chamartín tunnel, which is just over seven kilometres long, as well as the maintenance of the installations for 36 months.

In addition to the new Atocha-Jardín Botánico interlocking, Thales has also extended the electronic interlocking of the complex node at Bifurcación de Torrejón de Velasco (belonging to the Madrid-Seville line), with the inclusion of the ERTMS protection system at this node, as well as on the entire line.
