The West Trenton Separation Project clears the way for SEPTA to fully implement Positive Train Control (PTC), the next generation of signal safety equipment that works to further reduce the chance of human error along the line. Separation of the six-mile section of track shared by SEPTA and CSX Transportation between the Authority's Woodbourne and West Trenton stations will also help to alleviate rush hour train congestion in this area. Both SEPTA and CSX have experienced sustained growth along this section of track. SEPTA West Trenton ridership has increased by more than 60 percent over the last decade. CSX Transportation operates some 25 trains through the area daily, moving goods throughout the Greater Philadelphia region linking into the freight company's national north-south network.
