Atkins: Signalling and Power & Distribution contracts for the CASR

By on 04/08/2014

Atkins is delivering the Signalling and Power & Distribution contracts for the CASR which will modernise life-expired signalling equipment across 192 route miles of track between Newport and Port Talbot.

A technically challenging project, CASR is one of the first major signalling schemes in the UK to use latest innovations such as plug couplers and Frauscher train detection technology to help save time and money.

Over the course of the scheme, the team will undertake a range of tasks including centralising control of signalling equipment to the Cardiff Control Centre, installing an electronic crossing controller system and providing an improved power and distribution system.

Due for completion in 2016, this project will provide more efficient and reliable passenger services to meet demand in the South Wales region.
