Principal Contractor RJ Power Rail Completes Control Track Switches Contract

RJ Power Rail Limited, has successfully completed its PC contract on behalf of Network Rail’s Wessex Works Delivery Team, in respect of the design and installation of Control Track Switches (CTS) at 10 separate locations.

RJ Power Rail Limited provided a fully managed design and build offering, self-delivering all installation and required test and commissioning works – acting at CEM and managing the design through long-term supply chain partner, Rail Power Solutions.

The CTS devices installed are a new safety feature and method of managing power to the conductor rail system which is fed from traction substations at 750V DC, enabling activities to be implemented from a position of safety (the Electrical Control Room) and not from on or near the line.

The renewal was condition, reliability and safety driven and was supported by NR fault data and E&P Asset Policy. The works were a continuation based upon the CP5 E&P Works Delivery Renewals Programme.

The works required careful planning in conjunction with Network Rail’s Access Planning Manager and have been commissioned to meet Network Rail’s desired project outcome within the required project timeframe.

Sales Director, Matt Woolley added:

“This was a professionally delivered contract from end to end, working collaboratively with our long-term customer Wessex Works Delivery and other stakeholders throughout the works. We are delighted to have completed this contract and look forward to undertaking more works in the future for Network Rail.”
