Invensys Rail has been awarded a £57.8 million signalling contract by Network Rail for the Great Northern Great Eastern (GNGE) upgrade project.

The 16 month programme, which is an integral part of the East Coast Main Line Capacity Relief Project, will see a significant upgrade to the existing line between Doncaster and Peterborough that will be used as the primary day time route for freight traffic.

The scope of Invensys Rail’s contract includes all elements of design, testing, installation and commissioning for the re-signalling of 86 miles of track, including 45 level crossings, the demolition and removal of 24 signal boxes (including Level Crossing Gateboxes) and the replacement of seven interlockings.

The first of five major phase commissionings is scheduled to take place in August 2013, with the final commissioning planned for March 2014.
