RTIS wins extension to 5 year Signalling Maintenance Framework

After a successful 3 year period of maintaining Chiltern Railway’s signalling assets at Wembley Depot, we are pleased to announce the award of a further 5 year contract which continues with the provision of our fully managed signalling maintenance service. The Wembley Depot itself is a key strategic point in Chiltern Railway's operations and ensuring that this depot remains fault free and operational in order to run a smooth passenger service is just one aspect of the many signalling services that we provide.

The new contract comes with a continued 24/7 365 days fault response service, along with the provision of our competent signalling maintenance teams who are proficient to work on the German based Tiefenbach signalling system.

Carl Jamieson said,“I am extremely pleased to continue our close association with Chiltern Railways and its Wembley Depot. Over the last 3 years we have built up an excellent working relationship with the depot, and through our pro-activeness we have found solutions and rectified issues which keep the depot as fully operational as quickly as possible. The Tiefenbach signalling system is fairly unique to the UK so it is challenging when faults do occur, however our trained maintenance teams are competent and familiar with its processes and can rectify most faults as soon as the root cause is found.”     

The maintenance within the depot itself can be wide ranging, however the main areas of maintenance include:

  • Maintenance of complete Tiefenbach Signalling System
  • Maintenance of Proximity Switches & Tiefenbach T110 & HW Point Machines
  • Maintenance of Tiefenbach Axle counters, Control Cubicles and Signals
  • Maintenance of Signalling Panel
  • Periodical Signalling reports & Upgrade works to existing signalling equipment
  • 24/7 365 days a year fault cover response team.
