L.B. Foster Telecoms were contracted by infrastructure specialist J Murphy & Sons, on behalf of Arriva Rail London, to deliver station upgrade and refurbishment works in compliance with specifications detailed by London Overground Rail Operations Ltd (LOROL).
Security is a key concern for the Service Control Centre. L.B. Foster Telecoms was commissioned to undertake a detailed design of a fully integrated Access Control and CCTV system on a fibre ring, controlling all access to the site.
The DICORA S system is a desktop solution built specifically for controller positions in the rail environment. It’s a compact terminal which uses touch-oriented navigation to manage high call volumes and address multiple areas of responsibility efficiently.
This project seeks to provide additional station improvements, which will offer a much-improved passenger experience by relieving overcrowding, improving vertical circulation, and providing a more integrated Concourse, offering intuitive connection with airport terminals and/or onward travel.
Millions of passengers passing through the new Farringdon station on the Elizabeth line will benefit from new, fully integrated station communications systems installed by L.B. Foster Telecoms.
We worked closely with Dyer and Butler and DLR, drawing on our extensive experience of working on similar schemes in the rail sector to install, commission and handover a fully compatible SISS at each station.
During busy periods passengers are often dropped off at the front of the station, despite the area being restricted to bus parking. As a result a number of near misses have been recorded between vehicles and pedestrians. In an attempt to dissuade drivers from using this unsafe area to set down passengers, it was agreed that Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology should be installed...
Edinburgh Gateway is a new interchange hub proving joined up transfers from the ScotRail network directly onto Edinburgh Trams for travel to Edinburgh Airport. The station comprises two 265-metre platforms that can accommodate 10-coach trains and a 1,500 square-metre floor area.
The Elizabeth line will transform rail transport in London and the south east, increasing central London rail capacity by 10 per cent. This will reduce congestion and allow for more comfortable journey conditions. Congestion at many London Underground stations will be reduced, even for those that are not on the Elizabeth line route.
