Rail Signalling Design

Our experienced signal design team are capable of delivering signalling solutions spanning the design and replacement of single railway signals through to creating a new complete complex signalling system. We do not work on Network Rail frameworks and so are fully independent from the regulatory authorities and are able to deliver the best value driven solutions for our Clients. We understand legacy and emerging technologies and are able to guide our Clients through all available options in the design of any upgrades or new signalling system.

We understand the design to construction process and the inter-relation of the signalling solution with the whole rail environment and project deliverables. We recognise that the early consideration of the signalling strategy is often essential to derive the optimum solutions. We are agile and capable. Our work encompasses minor upgrade projects to mega new build projects in the UK, Israel and Australia.
