Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is helping the Indian Railways use its satellite-based system to check accidents at unmanned railway crossings and track train movements on a real-time basis


Working on a pilot project with Isro, the railways has installed space agency-developed integrated circuit (IC) chips on some train engines. The Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (or NaVIC) will be used to warn road users of approaching trains through hooters installed at unmanned road crossings.

Tapan Misra, director of Ahmedabad-based Space Applications Centre (SAC), confirmed that "Isro and the Indian Railways have been working together on this pilot project since June". Explaining the functioning of the satellite-based system, Misra said, "A hooter will be activated as soon as it gets signal from the IC chip installed on a train when its engine is at a distance of 500 metres to 4 km from the crossing. The hooter, linked to the navigation system, will thus warn road users about the approaching train. It will become louder as the train comes near the crossing and will fall silent after the train has passed."

The SAC director said, "Under the pilot project, IC chips have been installed on five engines of trains on different routes. The testing on the satellite-based hooter system has been going on since June to check if it is reliable and can function under different climatic conditions."

He said, "Isro is using its constellation of seven navigation satellites (IRNSS or NaVIC) for the railway safety system as the technology, once the pilot project is over successfully, will be installed on all trains across the country in phased manner."

The push for using the space technology for the railway safety system came after PM Narendra Modi, during a national meet on September 7, 2015, asked all central ministries and state governments to make the most of the Isro technology to provide good governance.

Safety at unmanned level crossings is a cause for concern for the railways as these crossings witness maximum accidents. The national transporter had explored various ways to address the issue before settling for the Isro system. There are about 7,254 unmanned railway crossings in the country which account for around 40% of accidents involving the railways. There are about 18,000 manned level crossings.

New Electronic Interlocking at Kharagpur Junction on 19th November, 2017

Commissioning of New Electronic Interlocking at Kharagpur Junction on 19th November, 2017

The New Electronic Interlocking System at Kharagpur Junction is India’s Largest and one of the Largest in the World

Commissioning of Electronic Interlocking System was Accomplished in Record Time Ensuring Minimum Traffic Disruptions and Passenger Inconvenience

Electronic Interlocking System at Kharagpur Junction will Ensure Smooth Movement of Trains over South Eastern Railway

India’s largest state of the art, Electronic Interlocking (EI) system of 800 routes has been commissioned at Kharagpur station in West Bengal on 19thNov2017 at 18:12 hrs. This EI system, also one of the largest in the World, replaces the old Route Relay Interlocking system with 423 routes. 

Kharagpur Junction in West Bengal, a gateway to the Eastern Metropolis of Kolkata from the South and the West, is one of the most important Railway stations of Eastern India. Everyday this station deals around 116 pairs of Mail/Express, goods and suburban trains with thousands of passengers.

Final work of commissioning was taken up during a block of 12 hours. Preparations for commissioning of this Electronic Interlocking commenced about 18 months back and involved hundreds of thousands of man-hours of installation and testing. Generally, work of this nature and magnitude, involving major yard remodeling, is commissioned by resorting to non-interlocked working for several days, resulting in severe disruption of railway traffic and public inconvenience from cancellation and late running of trains. To avoid such a situation, innovative planning was done for commissioning the work in a traffic block of 12 hours, thereby ensuring bare minimum traffic disruptions and passenger inconvenience. It speaks volumes of the planning and preparation by South Eastern Railway that commissioning was finally achieved in 10 hours i.e. two hours ahead of stiff target of 12 hours.

The commissioning of the new Electronic Interlocking has integrated (i) two additional platforms at Kharagpur Junction (ii) 3rd line from Howrah side and 2nd line from Adra side at Kharagpur Junction. Besides, it has ensured operation of down goods departure yard from the main Electronic Interlocking system at Kharagpur Junction.

To ensure highest level of availability and flexibility, this EI has been provided in a distributed manner with the interlocking distributed over 9 zones interconnected with highly reliable Optical Fibre Cables (OFC) in a ring configuration. This has also resulted in major reduction in use of copper cables which is not only unreliable, difficult to maintain, prone to theft but also costly. Facility has been provided for the setting of routes and clearing of signals from electronic Video Display Unit (VDU) using “Mouse & Key Board”. 

With the commissioning of EI system at Kharagpur Junction the movement of trains over South Eastern Railway will get eased up considerably and result in improved punctuality of Mail/Express trains and increase in average speed of goods trains.

ECoR BOUND TRAINS FROM & TO NORTHERN PARTS OF INDIA RUNNING LATE

Train servicestowards/from East Coast Railway are being affected  and losing their punctuality due to dense fog in North India, especially in Delhi and North Central region. Many important and prestigious trains like Rajdhani, Duronto, Sampark Kranti, Purusottam, Utkal, Nandankanan, Neelachal, Hirakud Express are being badly affected and their scheduled running paths have gone haywire.


East Coast Railway has urged its passengers to bear with the delay in train running as the situation is unavoidable. Many trains are now being rescheduled and will run o­n changed timings. Passengers are urged to refer to Helpline Enquiry Phone139to know the current status of their trains. Rescheduling of trains would also be announced in the media from time to time. East Coast Railway has already alerted its maintenance staff to be ready for the workload of trains that would be coming out of schedule.  Railways have stepped up monitoring24X7the running of trains and a special drive has now been started with the o­nset of the winter season and prevalence of fog in the morning hours.


East Coast Railway has geared up its manpower to cope with the dense fog during night and early morning in various Railway Sections under its jurisdiction and in the areas prone to be affected by fog and precautions have been taken regarding train running during the current winter season.


In dense fog weather i.e. in winter, drivers have been instructed to regulate train speed depending o­n visibility conditions for the safety of passengers and train movement. Apart from this, several precautions have also been taken and train running staffs are being counselled by the Railway Officers & Safety Counsellors to cope with the situations.


In areas prone to dense fog, luminous and fluorescent strips have been painted in OHE (Overhead Equipment) masts, Level Crossings and at busy traffic areas before an approaching “Stop Signal” to warn the loco pilot that the train is approaching a stop signal and running in sensitive areas. The provision of this device has been of great help to the loco pilots who now can spot these luminous strips even during fog and get extra careful regarding the aspect of the approaching signal.


The Safety Department of East Coast Railway headquarters has given instructions to accord highest priority for safe train running during foggy weather. The loco pilots and guards have been instructed to ensure that, they should put the safety of the passengers at the top and should run trains at such reduced speed in foggy weather as they feel confident and comfortable, even if it means loss of punctuality to the train.


In automatic signal territory, the maximum speed of a train is restricted to 30kmph and in Absolute Block territory the speed is restricted to 60kmph in dense fog. Depending o­n the severity of fog, the driver is expected to control the speed of the train and restrict it further if necessary.


Since the safety of the travelling passengers is top most priority,counselling of Station Staff, Loco-pilots & Guards are being conducted to run the trains in the prescribed speed limit and use of flasher lamps during fog to indicate last vehicle.When the loco pilot in his judgment feels that visibility is restricted due to fog, he has been given the authority to run at a speed at which he feels that he can control the train or stop the train whenever required without taking any risk. This speed shall in any case not be more than 60kmph. The loco pilots have also been advised to whistle frequently to warn the nearby gateman and road users of approaching train.
