International engineering group Thales is to design and install the telecommunications systems for São Paulo Line 17 monorail.

Alongside Brazilian partner T’Trans, the company will develop the CCTV, passenger information systems and transmission and telephony subsystems for one of the two monorail lines currently being built in the city.

Thales is already contracted to equip the line with its own Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system.

Line 17 will operate 18 trains an hour, connecting Congonhas International Airport to the rest of São Paulo’s metro system.

The project is expected to be completed within the next 22 months.
