UK: Siemens Mobility to Deliver Signalling and Control Systems for Network Rail

Siemens Mobility has secured first place on Network Rail’s Train Control Systems Framework (TCSF), which will upgrade thousands of miles of Britain’s rail network.

With this attainment,  Siemens Mobility will receive a share of contracts to be awarded from the 4 billion GBP rail signalling and control framework for the UK.

This will see the company deliver both digital and conventional signalling and control systems across the nation.

Siemens Mobility will deliver much of its technology from Chippenham, where it runs the UK’s only dedicated signalling and control facility. The company recently announced a 115 million GBP investment in this site to replace its existing factory and supply the next generation of conventional and digital rail signalling and control systems for Britain.

In doing so, Siemens Mobility will build on its existing collaborations with Network Rail and other suppliers on projects such as the East Coast Digital Programme (ECDP).

Rob Morris, joint CEO UKI, Siemens Mobility said:

“Coming first in the Train Control Systems Framework competition is a huge vote of confidence in Siemens Mobility and the investments we’ve made in our people, and in UK manufacturing and research and development.

“The hard work starts now: we’re committed to delivering the next generation of conventional and digital rail signalling and control systems at even better value for money and by doing so will help transform rail travel for Britain.”

The Train Control Systems Framework is expected to cover over 100 projects across Control Periods 7 and 8 (CP7 and CP8), running until 2034.

It will include resignalling, relocking, renewals, recontrols, and conversions to European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 digital signalling.
