Xmas Works

Throughout December we have been busy supporting many signalling projects in the UK which have all culminated in the major commissioning sites at Shenfield, Kensal Green, Maidenhead, Acton, New Cross and Wembley. During these works our staff have been working on various signalling activities such as points installation, SMTH & SWTH testing, installation of various 4ft signalling equipment, location modification works and installation support for SWTH teams.

During this busy period we have provided over 4,200 hours of signalling support which has been spread across TIC, Signalling supervision, H&S supervision, SMTH, Installation Team Leader, Installer and Assistant Installer grades. All works were undertaken without any accidents or incidents and were brought in on time. 

As we move into 2017 we look forward to cementing our customer relationships and to continue to provide what we believe is a first class service to the rail industry.      


RTIS News update 

Over the last few months we have been extremely busy with both on and off track successes. 

For the 4th consecutive year we are pleased to announce that we have passed our Achilles RISQS Audit with a “5 star” rating covering over 160 product codes. We have also received numerous “excellence” reports from our customer's audit protocol, which have covered our competence, process and delivery skills.   

Our staff development continues to flourish with our employees being upskilled in Point Fitting, IBCL installation, SMTH/G110 and SPWEE courses. With the introduction of Network Rail's SIG58 competence, we have now installed tubular stretcher bars within our training school and have trained all of our SMTH team leaders in this Sentinel based course. We are therefore able to offer our customers fully competent and equipped point fitting teams, many of which are currently being utilised on projects at Crossrail West and multiple S&C projects across the network. As well as technical based training we have also ensured that all our staff remain industry compliant in their re-cert competencies such as COSS, Safe Work leader, PTS, Look-Out, First-Aid and Manual Handling.    

Going trackside we have continued to provide significant support to our customers on the re-signalling schemes at Bristol, Cross Rail East and Nottingham. Other works have included signalling prep works for various S&C renewals sites, and support on numerous commissionings notably those at Nottingham, Bromsgrove, CNES and Cross Rail East. Our support works have been spread ranged across many different customers, all of which continues to provide us with the opportunity to showcase our highly competent signalling teams. A full list of the projects that we have worked on can be found on our recent projects page. Excellent and well earned praise has been earned by all RTIS teams on all of the schemes mentioned.  

As we look forward into 2017 we hope to continue our strong links with our customers and continue to provide a “first class” service in all that we offer.



250 up for RTIS !

As we approach the last few remaining months of 2016, we are delighted to have achieved another significant milestone for our business. We have now supported, or directly delivered, over 250 railway signalling projects for our customers since our company inception back in 2012. 

The 250 projects have been a mix of our own signalling project works, supporting first tier signalling companies with major re-signalling schemes, track renewals works, SWTH commissioning works, maintenance works, Signalling Project Management support and the provision of Signalling CRE/TIC expertise.

In order to continue our success, we remain focused on investing, training and producing first class signalling engineers and always place a strong emphasis on delivering works aligned to our company values.

It is our aspiration to continue with the high standards of work we have been involved with during 2016, and through a combination of signalling projects and significant labour frameworks we aim to reach the 300 project milestone by the middle period of 2017.



Further signalling project successes for RTIS 

We are pleased to announce that we have won 2 packages of signalling works which will be delivered throughout September, October & November. The works will be managed and delivered by RTIS which generally cover GRIP 6-8 activities.

The first package of works involves the installation of 8 ends of new HW point machines in the Bromsgrove area which will be fitted, guaged and then tested by RTIS point fitting staff. During the 11 day blockade, RTIS will then also provide 24 hour point team fault cover to support P Way activities.

The second package of works, on the Gospel Oak to Barking scheme involves moving signals, SPT's and the installation of car stop boards on 10 stations. We will undertake all these activities using in-house IRSE personnel and provide full signalling CRE & Project Manager support throughout the duration of the works.  

We await the news on many other tendered packages of work and hope to hear on the outcome of these within the next 2 month period.    


Ongoing works for RTIS 

Throughout the summer months we continue to be heavily involved with supporting the Bristol Re-signalling Scheme as it begins to reach the first stage of its many planned commissionings over the next 4 years. This is one of the UK's major signalling commissionings and is expected to last over 4 days during the August Bank Holiday weekend. Throughout August and September there are also a number of other commissioings planned, with those at Abbey Wood and Nottingham respectively. We are supporting Alstom with installation teams on the build up to these works along with suitably competent signalling supervisory graded staff.

Over the coming months we are also planned to undertake signalling works associated with the Gospel Oak to Barking platform extension works and also significant point installation works in the Bromgrove area involving both HW and clamplock machines. All works will be planned by RTIS in-house staff which range from CRE & Project Manager level down to Supervisor and IRSE qualified ground engineers.  

Whilst we are supporting our customers with many signalling works around the UK, we also continue to improve in the development of our signalling staff with further people trained in COSS certification, track circuit training and the next level of IRSE licensing categories.

During our site works, the feedback that we have recieved on our staff has been very complimentary. This is reflected in the repeat works that we are asked to cover primarily across SMTH/G110, installation, Test & Commission or delivery of signalling projects.
