Thales have been charged with delivering the worlds largest signalling upgrade of its kind, across what are considered to be London Undergrounds most important lines, Hammersmith & City, District, Circle & Metropolitan for the 4LM(Four Lines Modernisation) project.
To enable the CBTC(Communication Base Train Control) system, a series of antenna’s, wayside radio units and a variety of other electrical signalling installations have to be installed the full length of each line, 90% of which require foundation bases.
Gateway, having many years’ experience with civil works of this nature were invited to tender and subsequently, a main frame contract was awarded.
Teams of skilled Gateway operatives, working from survey and drainage sheets produced by Thales, have been able to keep ahead of the mechanical installation teams with the foundation bases thus ensuring a smooth delivery of the project.
