Stonehaven Signal Box Life Extension

With the aim being to complete a number of cost effective signalling system life extension works within the Stonehaven signal box control area, Linbrooke were selected to complete the GRIP 5 – 8 implementation phase of the project. This included signalling location case and signalbox equipment renewals, cable route refurbishment and signalling power distribution alterations.

Forming part of the East Coast Main Line (ECML), the overall scope of the commissioning upgrades were split into two stages, requiring us to orchestrate and deliver tightly managed 8 hour disruptive possessions for each. Laura McWilliams, Network Rail’s Scheme Project Manager stated that “Linbrooke remained focused on the delivery of GRIP 5-8 of this project and…they have maintained a professional approach both on site and within the office”
