Banbury Depot signalling installation works secured by UK based Global Rail Construction
Global Rail Construction (GRCL) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the next two signalling installation phases at Banbury Depot.
Having already successfully delivered the first phase of the signalling installation works at the depot and also been the first signalling organisation in the UK to install and commission a Tiefenbach points machine with associated back-drive – Global Rail Construction is delighted to secure further works.
The full scope of works included the full installation and commissioning of four points machines, three B Switches, a brand new Control Panel, along with the associated and necessary cabling and wiring. The previous works were undertaken during railway line blockages in the depot and required close and appropriate stakeholder engagement with the Banbury depot staff.
With parts coming from Europe, logistics management was vital. Global Rail Construction even took to flying over to Germany to obtain the necessary materials to ensure timely delivery and completion of the signalling installation works.
Working closely with design and testing partner Fenix Signalling, the project was commissioned on time.
Marco Lombardelli, Managing Director of Global Rail said this:
“Global Rail Construction has considerable experience in delivering complex turnkey railway signalling projects and has an extensive portfolio of successfully commissioned projects.
“The company’s services include the management, planning, installation, test and commissioning of complete railway signalling systems. From conducting the initial feasibility studies and developing the Construction Phase Plan, through to installation and testing of the equipment, our project management teams ensure that each element is completed and fully tested and commissioned before the project is signed off.”
