Global Rail Construction appointed by Balfour Beatty on LUL Sub Surface Rail Project
Global Rail Construction Ltd. is delighted to announce the continuation of its ongoing partnership with Balfour Beatty Engineering Services, with the award of Package 5A, which forms part of the sub-surface rail line upgrade on behalf of Transport for London.
The full scope of the contract includes the design, installation, test and commissioning of 11kV and 22kV cables together with associated HV cable diverts and fibre optic pilot cables, and the decommissioning of four HV cables.
Global Rail Construction Ltd’s scope of works incorporates full material logistics, management and the installation of all necessary cable route containment from Neasden BSP through to Cobourg Street.
The sub-surface rail line (SSR) power upgrade project primarily comprises the introduction of new rolling stock and signalling systems. As well as providing a greatly improved passenger environment that includes air conditioning, the new trains, coupled with the introduction of new signalling, will permit faster station-to-station running times and higher train service frequencies.
