Western Railway’s new mobile radio safety system to go live in 2 months

In order to make its trains run on time and improve its public announcement system, Western Railway (WR) is installing a new mobile train radio communication (MTRC) system that is expected to go live in two months.

“MRTC is already in progress and will be completed by March 2019,” said Ravinder Bhakar, chief public relations officer of WR. The radio system will allow the railway controller to make announcements onboard locals besides directly communicating with crew members.
