Following two years’ initial design work and eighteen months’ detailed design and construction, a team of over 300 staff and subcontractors from Siemens Rail Automation worked in shifts around the clock over a nine-day blockade, successfully commissioning the final stage of the Banbury Resignalling programme ahead of schedule at 02:33am on Monday 8 August. From briefings on 29 July to project commissioning on 8 August, the team worked in close collaboration with Network Rail and its contractor partners to enable Chilterns trains to enter the newly-built ‘super depot’.
Siemens Rail Automation has been awarded a contract by Network Rail for the GRIP 5 to 8 stages of the Port Talbot West Phase 1 re-signalling project. The programme will see the last section of the Great Western Mainline converted for electrification in preparation for the operation of the new Intercity Express Programme trains.
