Title

4LM - Modernising the oldest part of the Underground

Event Type

Technical Paper

Summary

The Scenario: How can the ATC Principle Contractor, Thales, cut-in to the depot to automatically control points and route trains when there is no existing signalling equipment or control and the points mechanism is a mechanical hand-worked lever?

Details

For the 4LM (4 Lines Modernisation) Project, the first Section of SSL (Sub-Surface Line) Railway on the London Underground network to go through an ATC (Automatic Train Control) Signalling Upgrade is from Hammersmith to Edgware Road on the Hammersmith & City Line. Within this area there was a specific challenge that created a project within the main 4LM Upgrade Project.

At Hammersmith there is a Depot capable of berthing 13 S7 trains. This depot however is handworked. i.e all points are thrown by a Shunter by means of pulling a handle. As part of the ATC Contract, this depot will become a fully automated siding where all train movements into and out of the siding will be controlled by the ATC Signalling System.

The Scenario: How can the ATC Principle Contractor, Thales, cut-in to the depot to automatically control points and route trains when there is no existing signalling equipment or control and the points mechanism is a mechanical hand-worked lever?

This technical presentation will shed light into the unique scenarios (like the one above) faced for the 4LM project and outline the engineering processes and solutions adopted to modernise the oldest part of London Underground by introducing CBTC (Communication Based Train Control).
