Siemens Completes 2-Year Signalling Upgrade Project

Siemens Mobility has commissioned a new signalling system at Hither Green, south-east London.

The Hither Green Area Resignalling Project has undergone its final commissioning. The new signalling technology will increase the reliability of trains running through that section, such as into Lewisham, Central London and Kent.

Network Rail is funding a 250 million GBP programme to upgrade the signalling and track reliability through this busy area of south-east London. This particular contract was part of that project and is also the first major commissioning delivered during the coronavirus pandemic.
