Coleraine to Derry~Londonderry contract award

Babcock International Group is pleased to announce that it has been successful in winning a multi-million pound signalling scheme, awarded by Translink, as part of an overall £46m project to upgrade the railway line between Coleraine and Derry~Londonderry.

To be delivered over a 33 mile route, the works comprise detailed design, installation, supply and testing of core signalling, control systems, telecoms, power supplies and civils works along with associated track support. 

Design works are set to commence immediately with an estimated site completion date of December 2016.

Pieter Esbach, Managing Director of the Rail business commented:“I am really pleased that we will be working together with Translink to support them in achieving a more resilient service that will potentially offer faster and more frequent journeys on this important rail corridor.  This is one of the largest signalling contract awards that we have secured in recent years and marks an important point in the development of our signalling business. 

We have worked successfully with Translink in the past delivering level crossing works, track works and testing support and I look forward to us building a close working relationship with them once again through the safe and timely delivery of this project.”
