All Trains on the Golden Quadrilateral to Go High Speed

Indian Railways has planned for a massive overhaul of the signalling system on the Golden Quadrilateral, in turn making the trains on the network run faster.

Golden Quadrilateral is a network of highways connecting four major cities in India, namely-Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai. Of the total trains, 70 percent of rail traffic is generated on the Golden Quadrilateral.

The railways will be investing in a signalling system used by railways across Europe called European Train Control System (ETCS) to bring about this change. This new technology will supposedly minimise the distance between two trains and improve safety.

The project is said to cost Rs.77,000 crore and will be spread across 60,000 kms on Indian Railways.
