RTIS appoint new Signalling Engineering Manager 

We are pleased to announce that as from January 15th 2018 a new RTIS Signalling Engineering Manager post will be taken up by Sam Allen. Sam has steadily worked his way up through the company from a signalling trainee to his current role as an IRSE licensed Engineering Manager. Over the last 2 years Sam has been working on the Bristol Re-signalling Scheme where he has been given the opportunity to show his planning and technical skills in a large scale signalling project environment. We wish Sam well in his new role which will include project delivery, project management, responsibility for signalling maintenance contracts, signalling site support and the signalling mentorship of both SMTH and new installation staff.

One of Sam’s first project delivery roles will be to manage the installation of another new VAMOS user works crossing system at Little Hays on the Southminster to Wickford  Line. The new crossing will replace the current model and will include new wiring alterations, the installation of new Frausher Axle Counters and all the crossing equipment itself. 

In addition to Sam’s appointment we also have 13 new signalling engineers about to start their initial signalling training with us at our Ipswich training academy. Each of the new engineers will undertake training in Electrical Principles, Basic Signalling 1, PTS, Diagram Reading, SPWEE,  E.I.S.S (Location case building including crimping/beading/jointing techniques), Manual Handling, Working at Heights and First Aid . By the middle of March these engineers will be ready to be integrated with our current workforce as they begin their journey towards an industry recognised IRSE installer licence.
