As a Principal Contractor, Linbrooke Services provide professional telecommunications engineering to support the whole project life cycle throughout the entirety of the sector. Through the successful delivery of many complex rail telecommunications projects, we can demonstrate our proven ability to consistently meet our customers’ needs, timescales and budgets.

 This includes delivery in Operational Telecommunications, Digital Transmission Networks, European Train Control Systems (ETCS), Station Information and Surveillance Systems (SISS), and Driver Only Operations (DOO) Systems as well as the delivery of Terestrial Radio Transmissions Networks and Subsea Transmission Networks.

Benefits we offer

With our exceptional safety record, we have a national geographic presence renowned for providing our clients with an efficient delivery model driven by our ‘right first time’ ethos and collaborative approach.

We have the capability to provide an all-encompassing service entirely from our own internal resources from the initial concept, through to detailed design, development and procurement, build, integration, commissioning into service and comprehensive maintenance.



Key experience

We have experience in every aspect of Rail Telecommunications. This includes feasibility and pioneering reports, engineering and business telecommunications consultancy services, detailed multidisciplinary designs and design management. We have delivered copper and fibre networks and enhancements along the entire national rail network to the delivery of high bandwidth state of the art digital transmission networks, Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Networks and Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure supporting mission critical signalling and telecommunications control functions. We have delivered cellular leaky feeder solutions through to GSM-R radio infill & repeater works to support European Train Control Systems (ETCS) roll out as well as enhancements of existing Station Information and Surveillance Systems (SISS) networks and the provision of multi-station passenger information PA/PAVA, CCTV security and Driver Only Operation (DOO) systems.

“I don’t think I can recall a handover walkout with such a clean slate as its outcome, and that is due to Linbrooke’s attention to detail and high work standards.”

“Congratulations to the Linbrooke project team on the PA/VA and CIS works – this is a project being completed without drama and with a truly collective team focus.”
