Linbrooke Project Scope

Linbrooke were able to provide a truly turnkey solution closely matched to Buckingham’s delivery programme. Working in accordance with Network Rail’s mandatory GRIP process for the delivery of rail projects, Linbrooke supported the agreed stage works through to signalling system handback to allow the physical train control works to be delivered. Key to the success of the project was the time taken to agree on an acceptable workshare that allowed the project to be delivered to time and cost. 

Services provided:

• Civil Engineering for Signalling Minor Structure Design and Install, 7 Kilometres of Lineside Multicore and Power Cables

• Lift and Shift of existing Cables to support the new Platforms Construction works

• Signalling Location Case Equipment Housing Build and Internal Installation including Factory Test process

• Signalling System Equipment Design, Installation, Test and Commissioning

• Telecommunications

• Minor Signalling Power Supply Upgrade

On the new location case that you installed at Maghull North for ML220R, you have fitted a screen for keeping the location case in the shade, can I congratulate you on this innovation. This is a brilliant yet simple solution to the issue of sun warming up the sides and I would love to expand this across the network as we have issues with this type of problem.
