Feltham Resignalling Project Phase 0

CLIENT: Kier Construction (Kier)
DATE: Jan 2016
LOCATION: Shepperton Branch Line, Feltham, Middlesex

Following previous successful contracts with Kier, Global Rail Construction Ltd (GRCL) again delivered a compelling tender and, in early 2016, was awarded the civil engineering scope of works for the Feltham Resignalling Project Phase 0 (Shepperton Branch).

The major resignalling project to renew life expired signalling, telecoms and power assets on behalf of railway systems giant Atkins, comprised the renewal of 538 Signalling Equivalent Units (SEUs).

The geographical work-scope, which covers over 80 miles of railway lines also included, for the first time, the introduction of Atkins brand new signalling system – Elix.

Works were planned during mid-week days and nights, Saturday nights and four 28-hour railway possessions between weeks 48 and 14, leading up to a 15-day blockade commencing in Week 16, between 16th and 31st July 2016.

Having a multi-disciplinary workforce including rail, civil and structural installation expertise, along with in-house project management, and having previously delivered time-pressurised re-signalling schemes, allowed Global Rail Construction to provide a delivery solution, one which the client readily accepted.
