Austrian-Hungarian joint venture, GySEV Zrt is investing HUF 6.9 bn (EUR 20 million) in expanding the central traffic control system (KÖFI) to Rajka-Szombathely and Szombathely-Zalaszentiván railway sections and in establishing a new control center at Csorna, Szombathely. Upon competition of the investment, the number of remote controlled stations will reach 35 and all GySEV lines will be controlled centrally.
As part of the project, a central traffic control unit will also be established in Sopron and 30 visual passenger information displays will be installed in railway stations, further improving the quality of rail passenger transport service provided by the company.
The implementation of the project has started in December last year and is being carried out by Prolan-Savaria consortium, formed of Prolan Ltd. and Dunántúli Távközlési és Biztosítóberendezési Építő Kft. The system is expected to be operational in March 2016.
Financing is provided under the Transport Operational Programme (TOP).
