Ansaldo STS awarded 20.5 million USD contract for signalling between Speonk and Montauk, NY

Genova, December 20, 2013 - Ansaldo STS (STS.MI) was recently awarded a contract with Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to provide signalling along a 45 mile segment of line between Speonk and Montauk, New York.

The scope of the contract for Ansaldo STS is to design and furnish a new vital microprocessor based interlocking control system as part of the LIRR project to improve the signalling on this portion of line from dark territory to signalled territory.

This upgrade will increase the safety and reliability of the line and support the LIRR’s planned Positive Train Control (PTC) system.

Ansaldo STS will supply technology for the Automatic Speed Control (ASC) signalization, including new interlocking at Hampton Bay and Southampton, new control points at Amagansett and Montauk and 38 grade crossing huts.
