• The suburban line between Mexico City and Toluca will be the first ETCS Level 2 signalling and telecommunication project in Latin America.
• With its state-of-the-art signalling and telecommunication solution, the new line will carry up to 270,000 passengers per day.
• The new 57 km rail link will allow 600,000 daily trips between Mexico City and Toluca, with an end-to-end journey time of 39 minutes.

The contract was awarded to Thales as part of a consortium of Spanish companies and their Mexican subsidiaries*.

Toluca is a fast-growing industrial city with a population of 1.8 million, and the Mexico City-Toluca highway is one of Mexico’s busiest roads. The new 57 km rail link will remove an estimated 200,000 vehicles from the congested local road system and significantly reduce CO2 emissions. It is expected to carry 270,000 passengers per day between Mexico City and Toluca, with trains travelling at up to 160 km/h and an end-to-end journey time of 39 minutes.

Thales will deploy its state-of-the-art ETCS Level 2 signalling technology and telecommunications systems including GSM-R. This is the first implementation of the ETCS Level 2 signalling solution in the American continent. In 2008, Thales deployed also the first ETCS Level 1 system on Mexico City's Buenavista-Cuautitlán line.

Thales is one of the principal suppliers of rail signalling technology and the world leader in ETCS solutions, with a 30% share of the global market. This latest contract in Mexico follows recent awards for ETCS and telecommunications solutions in Nigeria, Greece, Poland, Spain and Hungary, and confirms the continuing success of the company's international expansion strategy.

"Mexico is a key country for Thales in the region, where we have been present for almost 50 years as a reliable player in the aerospace, security, defense and transportation industries. This strategic achievement to signal the Mexico City-Toluca line crowns our footprint in the transportation sector in Mexico, where we have a strong presence in ticketing and toll systems, signaling and telecommunication”.

Ruben Lazo, Managing Director of Thales in Latin America

About ETCS
ETCS (European Train Control System) is a modern train protection system that ensures the safe transportation of passengers and goods. In an effort to harmonise the continent’s networks, ETCS has been the European standard since 1986. Today, ETCS is in service not only in Europe but also in many countries around the world.

ETCS is a modular solution consisting of different levels. The main difference between ETCS Level 1 and ETCS Level 2 lies in the type of communication medium used between the vehicle and the trackside infrastructure. ETCS Level 1 communication is carried out using Eurobalise transponders already present on the tracks, while ETCS Level 2 uses GSM-R.
