Go Transit Train Control System

In by SEO Anseo

The GO Transit Train Control System (GTCS) Project will include creating and providing a new computer-based train control system located in the GO Transit Control Centre (GTCC) being constructed in Oakville.

GO Transit operates services over 264 route miles and eight rail corridors. Approximately 70 percent is owned by GO Transit and dispatched by Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway from respective control centres. The rail network owned by GO Transit will be replaced with state-of-the-art computer-based Interlockings and LED signaling technology controlled from a centre in Oakville, Ontario.

This project will provide Metrolinx with a new computer-based integrated train control centre for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, one of the busiest transit areas in Canada. It will also provide Metrolinx with a comprehensive view of the entire network (routes totaling 452km with 253 weekday train trips), support to optimize each train movement and manage preventive maintenance work.

Due to the magnitude of this project, it involves intense collaboration from multiple parties. One of our roles on this project is to monitor the critical path and prepare schedule analysis to identify the impact of progress and/or scope change on previously scheduled target dates. Based on the outcome of our analysis, recommendations are provided to Project Managers accordingly. We also evaluate construction progress and generate comprehensive schedules in a variety of formats and details to satisfy different user requirements.

We continue to work closely with the client in order to manage expectations and deliver the desired results.
