UK: Infotec Deliver Large Format LED Displays to Crossrail
Passenger information specialists Infotec have delivered more than a dozen large format LED customer information screens (CIS) to Abbey Wood Station, which is set to become a key station on the Crossrail route. The order was placed by Fone Alarm Installations, which itself was contracted by Balfour Beatty to supply the communications equipment for the station.
Abbey Wood Station currently serves Southeastern’s North Kent services. The boards, double-sided P1143 displays, will act as three-line Next Train Indicators (NTI) on the Crossrail North Kent Line Platform. The installation is part of the complete upgrade of Abbey Wood Station, which will also feature two island platforms, one of which is for Crossrail, the other for North Kent services.
Infotec managing Director Tim Court says:
“Crossrail is a highly prestigious project for the UK and we are pleased and proud to be involved in it. The products we are manufacturing will meet the needs of both the travelling public and, equally importantly, of the system operators.
Infotec has also been contracted to design and build TFT displays for nine Crossrail stations, with attention paid to passengers with visual and hearing impairments. The NTI displays will be placed over the platform edge doors for ease of reference. The contracts were awarded by Siemens, who are managing the Crossrail Control and Communications Contract.
