Hitachi Rail Europe signed Thameslink contract for traffic management

ThameslinkHitachi Rail Europe (HRE) and Network Rail signed the Thameslink contract for traffic management. Under the contract, HRE will supply Network Rail with a traffic management solution with options for the South East and London North Eastern programme, which will provide the framework for a blue print to support the roll out of a full digital railway.
The Core Thameslink contract is for £24 million (EUR 34 million), with further costed options that may be taken up in future.
Technical scope of the project will be delivered by Hitachi Information Control Systems Europe Ltd, a new organisation that will bring together the products and experience of TRE, with those of the parent company’s Information & Telecommunications Systems and Infrastructure Systems Divisions – this includes simulators, automatic routing systems and the Tranista Traffic Management Platform.
“Providing a frequent and reliable service through the heart of the city and to a host of new destinations will only be possible thanks to this technology,” Thameslink Programme director Simon Blanchflower said.
The Thameslink Programme will transform north-south travel through London and will be completed in 2018.
