Perris Valley Line Expansion Support

Construction of the 91/Perris Valley Line began in October 2013. Led by the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC), the 91/PVL is the first extension of Metrolink service since the Antelope Valley Line was built in 1994. The 91/PVL is continuing rail service 24 miles from the Downtown Riverside Station. The project also included construction and rehabilitation of railroad tracks, upgraded at-grade crossings and improvement of existing tracks. The 91/PVL will provide greater access to Southern California’s commuter rail network for residents in Menifee, Murrieta, Temecula, San Jacinto, Hemet, Lake Elsinore and Wildomar.

Enabled Consultants provided project management support in preparation of revenue services on the PVL (Perris Valley Line). Enabled Consultants also provided services supporting the communication system network at the permanent crew base building at the South Perris layover facility and passenger station Customer Information System (CIS) and Ticket Vending Machine (TVM) systems.

Positive Train Control

Positive Train Control (PTC) is a life-saving innovation that will make travel by rail even safer. Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA) / Metrolink was the first commuter rail in the nation to implement this state-of-the-art technology, moving the agency significantly closer toward its goal of becoming the safest commuter rail in the nation.

Positive Train Control (PTC) is GPS-based safety technology capable of preventing train-to-train collisions, over-speed derailments, unauthorized incursion into work zones and train movement through switches left in the wrong position. PTC monitors and, if necessary, controls train movement in the event of human error. PTC may also bring trains to a safe stop in the event of a natural disaster.

Enabled Consultants provided project management services for the implementation of a new system wide MPLS backhaul network. In addition, Enabled Consultants provided engineering consulting services in various areas including: Network Design, Network Engineering, IT Infrastructure Operations, Data Center Planning, and Disaster Recovery.
