The Ghaziabad-Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay section (762 km) has become the longest fully automatic block signaling section of the Indian Railways.
With this it has also become the longest Automatic Block Signaling section of Indian Railways.
Indian Railways is introducing Automatic Block Signaling on a mission mode. ABS has been commissioned on 268 RKM during 2022-23. ABS has been provided on 3706 route kms of Indian Railways till 31st December 2022.
With the implementation of automatic signalling, there will be an increase in capacity resulting in the introduction of more train services.
Electronic interlocking is being adopted on a large scale to take advantage of digital technologies in train operations and to enhance safety.
To increase line capacity to run more trains on existing high density routes of Indian Railways, Automatic Block Signaling (ABS) is a cost effective solution.
