Getting the line up and running

More than 50 different systems had to be integrated to create an operational railway. Systems integration is the process of connecting different components and technologies into a single larger system that functions as one.

The Elizabeth line is one of the world’s most technologically advanced railways, employing more than 50 different systems, including some technologies that have been integrated here for the first time, anywhere in the world.

In addition, the Elizabeth line feeds a huge volume of data into the Route Control Centre at Romford in east London. Core station systems include:

  • Closed-circuit television systems, radio and communications

  • Escalators and lifts

  • Driver only camera operation

  • Public address and voice alarm fire systems panels

  • Station management system

  • Low voltage switchgear for lighting

  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning

  • Door alarms

  • Customer information systems

We helped lead the station integration and worked on testing and commissioning of the 10 central London stations, from Paddington to Abbey Wood. Stations must operate in perfect synchronicity with routeways (track, mechanical, electrical and traction power), signalling and telecoms. Our integration team provided a central hub for planning and monitoring progress towards bringing the stations into use.
