This is the final stage of PTC testing before the FRA will grant similar PTC operations on Metrolink’s other commuter rail lines in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties.“We are pleased to have reached this important project milestone,” said Todd Wager, Parsons Group President. “Metrolink is the first commuter rail to achieve this key FRA approval, which is a significant step not only for Metrolink but also for the railroad industry as a whole. It will help usher in a safer train system throughout the country.”PTC is collision avoidance technology that monitors and controls train movements. It is intended to prevent train-to-train collisions, overspeed derailments, incursions into established work zone limits, and movement of trains through a main line switch left in an improper position.As the systems integrator for Metrolink, Parsons is leading the design, procurement, and installation of both field and office components, along with complete integration testing of the Metrolink PTC system. Parsons is the primary systems integrator in the U.S. commuter rail market, helping a variety of customers meet the mandatory PTC system requirements of the Rail Safety Improvement Act of 2008. In addition to Metrolink, Parsons is working with Amtrak and New Jersey Transit.Parsons, celebrating 70 years of growth in the engineering, construction, technical, and professional services industries, is a leader in many diversified markets with a focus on defense/security, industrial, and infrastructure.
