SCR commissions largest Electronic Interlocking Signaling System at Gooty Yard

Hyderabad, Jul 13 (UNI) South Central Railway (SCR) has commissioned the largest Electronic Interlocking (EI) signaling system at Gooty yard on Sunday, ahead of its targeted schedule, along with major yard remodelling.
The signalling installation provided at the station, which is a junction, is the most advanced and modern signalling system, which enables hassle free handling of trains at Gooty Railway Station in Guntakal Division of Andhra Pradesh, an SCR statement here said on Monday.
The interlocking mechanism provided at Gooty Station yard is also the fourth largest Inter-Locking system installed over the SCR.
Other major yards on SCR include the yards at Secunderabad, Vijayawada and Kazipet Railway stations. But these are not Electronic Inter-locking signalling systems. Now, the Gooty Railway Station yard after remodelling and strengthening of the signalling system has become the largest Electronic Interlocking station on SCR with 343 Routes.
The project has been jointly executed by the Guntakal Division and Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL) and completed in a record time well before its schedule. All the safety precautions were observed by the staff while executing the work, the statement said.
The most distinguishing feature of this installation is that there will not be any un-signalled / manual movement of Trains leading to safer train operations. A total of 14 hand operated points were converted into motor operated points.
Also earlier the train movements at Gooty station were controlled by operating the signals from two end Cabins and one central Deputy Station Superintendent.
It is now replaced by Electronic Interlocking central operator with single control resulting in significant decrease in physical interference in operation of signals besides reducing the Manpower requirement.
