June news update

Throughout June we have been extremely busy supporting our customers with a real mix new signalling installation projects, SMTH/G110 testing works and maintenance type activities.

We have been active in many successful commissioings (and rehearsal commissionings) such as those at Malvern Wells, Chislehurst, Bristol, Abbey Wood and Ilford. Our staff have earned warm praise from our customer’s signalling project managers and supervisors alike, for both their site efforts and high levels of technical competence. 

June has also seen us react quickly to numerous depots run-throughs and faults which we have attended across the UK network. We have often had to re-instate & repair signalling equipment in difficult circumstances, along with installing new point machines to ensure our customer’s rolling stock do not suffer further delays to their services. Once again we have earned praise for our pro-active efforts in this growing area of our business. 

As we move into July we continue to enjoy a vision of long term signalling installation and commissioning works. With this in place we aim to build and continue to develop the skills of our workforce with further planned IRSE, safety critical and technical training. We believe this continual development will ensure that we will continue to be one of the UK’s key signalling SME’s.

Points teams for Tubular Stretcher Works

With the introduction of Network Rail's SIG58 tubular stretcher bar training within our workforce we are pleased that we can offer our customers 100% industry compliant and fully equipped point fitting teams. Over the past few months we have worked on many different types of points equipment (with many involving tubular stretcher bars) which have included complete set up and testing of new points layouts, to more routine tasks such as Facing Points Lock Tests.

Our points work has been spread across a wide range of customers in many different geographical areas of the UK. RTIS point fitting teams come equipped with full points testing equipment and the new tubular stretcher bar testing equipment as/when required.

Please contact Graham Bennett by e-mail: graham.bennett@rt-is.co.uk or call 01473 242330 if you have any requirements in this area.

News update

Over the last 6 week period we have been extremely busy with both on and off track successes.

Our Works Testing Division headed up by RTIS Testing Director John Marshall, and a number of our SWTH testers, have been involved with supporting major commissionings at Stafford and Swindon. In addition to this our team has delivered a number of direct projects at both Earls Court and Worksop, which whilst being extremely challenging, have been succcessful and further cements our position in this sector of the UK signalling market.

Our continued works on the re-signalling schemes at Cross Rail East, East Kent, Bristol, March East, Abbey Wood and Maidenhead, along with the completion of a Network Rail track circuit upgrade project at Horsham have all ensured that our installation, SMTH and G110 competent teams have all been busy. The schemes have been across a wide range of different customers, all of which continues to provide us with the opportunity to support our customers with our highly competent signalling teams. Excellent and well earned praise has been earned by all RTIS teams on all of the schemes mentioned.  

Off the track we have ensured that all our staff remain industry compliant with the completion of Network Rail's ICI course, along with many other re-certable courses such as COSS, PTS & Look-out. Our number of our signalling staff have also become PC trained, enabling them to control multiple COSS's during line blockages.

Simon Jamieson CEO says, “I am extremely pleased to have secured this framework with Colas Rail which will become another key customer throughout the RTIS business. We see our SMTH/G110 testers as an integral part of this support contract, and by securing the framework we now have the platform to develop further key SMTH staff to widen the options that we can offer Colas Rail over the next 3 years.”
