Installation of OCS equipment

Installation of Catenary equipment on the Open Route section of the CTRL-Section 2.

The installation team is using a special RRV (Road-Rail Vehicle) to securely work at height in dedicated baskets. The safe operation of the vehicle on the tracks is under the responsibility of the Banksman who is walking with the vehicle as it progresses on the line.
