ProRail has approved Movares’ concept for a standard, inexpensive type of interlocking. The PLC Interlocking system (known as Eurolocking outside the Netherlands) can now be included in new tenders. This opens the way for the revolutionary alternative interlocking to be installed in the Netherlands and abroad.

This inexpensive, standardized technology will eventually make tailor-made interlocking computers and huge relay interlockings superfluous. Trials in July 2012 at Santpoort Noord station and in December 2012 at Beverwijk demonstrated that the system works.
