5:00 PM Closing Keynote International Case Study: Signalling on the Elizabeth Line: Insights into Train Throughput Expectations at Crossrail

The journey on Crossrail has expected to cut travel time by half, and by its completion in 2019, will promise a train every two and half minutes at peak time at central London stations. To accommodate the planned throughput of trains, Crossrail has three sections using different signalling systems. The central operating section comprises all new railway signalling and technology, utilising CBTC and on the western end, the utilisation of ETCS-L2. In this session, Chris will explore:
  • Building consistency with systems and technologies between the new signalling centre and train operations
  • Insights into the plan and strategy development for determining the right technology and systems to implement
  • Determining a strategy for effective testing and the static tests required to turn on systems and integrated testing in a controlled fashion
