Signalling and Train Control

Signalling and Train Control

SNC-Lavalin is a leader in emerging train control systems including ETCS (European Train Control System) for mainline applications and CBTC (Communication-Based Train Control) for metro systems.

Our team has unrivalled experience of implementing these technologies on some of the most demanding railways in the world. As new technologies move train control system intelligence from trackside onto the train, integration of train control, rolling stock and infrastructure becomes increasingly important. SNC-Lavalin offers industry-leading expertise in signaling rail infrastructure and rolling stock in a single company.

We have significant experience of conventional signaling, delivered to well-defined standards. Our philosophy is to tackle the cost pressures and resource shortages in this market by enhancing productivity of existing resources through sound governance and pragmatic innovation, rather than simply supplying additional resource into projects suffering from rework and inefficient delivery.

Many bespoke legacy signaling installations suffer from a lack of available asset knowledge, limited support from the original supplier and obsolescence. Our expertise allows the life of such systems to be extended through targeted intervention, rather than requiring wholesale replacement.

Our broad experience enables us to define migration paths which allow modern technologies to be implemented upon existing railways with minimum service disruption.
