AUTHOR: Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District
SUBJECT: Positive Train Control
ABSTRACT: Consistent with the requirements prescribed in Subpart I, NICTD has developed and provided its intended sequencing for implementing Positive Train Control in an efficient and logical manner. The sequencing of activities was developed in consideration of design, installation, validation and testing, commissioning and training in an order that effectively dovetails with FRA reviews, available resources, long lead procurements / activities and critical schedule paths. NICTD intends to equip its entire operating territory (with the exception of the designated MTEA) as a single project in advance of the December 2018 mandate. In November of 2015, NICTD’s System Integration contractor initiated its efforts to mature and achieve early milestones associated with the plan outlined in our PTCIP 4.2.
