The Project involves the design and construction of a new signalling and telecomms system, by a Signalling and Telecomms Design and Build Contractor. The project is a re-signalling scheme for the Coleraine to Derry Londonderry Railway Line in Northern Ireland.
A Route Relay Interlocking system is to be designed and constructed along the 33,5 mile long single line route. The Signalling and Telecomms Infrastructure for a new Passing Loop is to be designed and constructed in the vicinity of Bellarena Station. The Signalling and Telecomms Infrastructure for new Engineering Sidings will be designed and constructed in the vicinity of Bellarena Station also. There are currently three signal boxes on this route. All signalling control is to be consolidated into the Coleraine Signal Box and the existing signal cabins at Castlerock Station and at Derry Londonderry Station will be closed under this scheme.
The Bann Bridge in Coleraine has a central bascule span. The control and detection associated with this lifting span is to be designed and constructed by the Economic Operator. This includes the interlocking of the lifting controls with the Signalling and Telecomms system on the Coleraine to Derry Londonderry Railway Line.
The appointed Economic Operator will be responsible for the design and construction of all the Signalling and Telecomms Infrastructure on the Coleraine to Derry Londonderry Railway Line.
A number of User Worked Crossings along this railway line have warning times below those recommended in the Railway Safety Principles Guidance. Under this project, the arrangements at the User Worked Crossings will be made compliant with the Railway Safety Principles Guidance document by the provision of designed Signalling and Telecomms solutions.
The anticipated design period is from March 2013 until March 2014. The anticipated construction period is from March 2014 until March 2015.
Throughout the construction period, the timetabled train services will operate on the Coleraine to Derry Londonderry Railway Line. The majority of construction activities will take place during overnight engineering possessions in “Green Zones” supplemented by some daytime works in “Red Zones”.
The estimated value, excluding VAT, of the project is in the cost range of GBP 13,000,000 to GBP 17,000,00.
