Sussex 7-Day Railway Hookswitch Replacement Project


Expertise: Civil Engineering, Communications, Railway Electrification, Permanent Way
Value: £1.5m

Controlled Track Switch (CTS) installation with SCADA

The project has been undertaken to replace existing hookswitch architecture with new SCADA – Controlled Track Switches (CTS). The principle behind the project is to allow quicker track isolation times for Network Rail maintenance and projects by isolating track areas from the ECR Location instead of physically opening and closing hookswitches.The project is multi-disciplined involving Civil Engineering, Permanent Way, Electric Track Equipment (ETE), Communications and Electrical works (E and P). The project is on schedule and due for completion in February 2015.
