ETCS Balise Bases – Heathrow


Expertise: Civil Engineering
Value: £460k

The scope of the project is to provide an ETCS Level 2 Overlay system as a signalling renewal on the Western Route Paddington-Heathrow in line with Network Rail’s commitments to the Crossrail Programme and the agreed Western Baseline Plan.

The Derailment Containment Device (DCD) is situated within the HAL tunnel infrastructure and is formed of concrete and located in the four foot. The DCD requires modification to accommodate the installation of a signalling asset known as a Balise. Fifty-two (52) Balise are required in total, distributed along the DCD. They are installed in pairs approximately 3m apart. In order to install a Balise, the DCD will be modified by removing (cutting and breaking out) a portion of the DCD.
