Event description

Description

London Underground has increased its fleet mileage by almost 40% since the year 2000 but productivity of track renewal has not improved at the same rate. The Engineering Fleet of 270 vehicles is being modernised with new vehicles and innovative new mechanised maintenance solutions requiring an interoperable signalling solution to maximise the versatility of these specialised assets.

To deliver more productive track interventions with fewer closures, engineer’s vehicles need to get to site earlier and reliably to maximise productivity by inter-running with the passenger service.

There are currently 4 different signalling systems but 2 more are planned so the engineering vehicles need to be interoperable between legacy fixed block and multiple CBTC signalling systems.

This presentation will introduce the project and describe how LU is managing the complexities through a phased architecture description database using the TRAK framework, with contextualised requirements and responding to assurance requirements.

Alan Wilson, Project Manager for the EV Signalling Concept Design stage, and Jorrel Dawoodi, a Systems Engineer supporting the Track Plant portfolio will present their practical methodologies used to manage the complexity of signalling interoperability.
