West Coast Signal Screens - BCS for ABCEL

Screens / Cages for Ladders and Gantries on West Coast Signals to prevent operatives from coming into contact with 25KV wires or RCs. All supplied in kit form for each individual signal to bespoke designs.

The upgrading of the West Coast railway (Euston to Glasgow) has involved re-modelling of the 25KV overhead line feed and return syste,. Changes in the positions of the wires mean that personnel maintaining signals are vulnerable. The contracts undertaken with BCS have the sole purpose of providing protection for personnel. 

The work was undertaken for BCS Design whose client ABCEL is a consortium of Alstom, Babcock and Costain who are responsible for the power system upgrades on this and other Network Rail areas in the midlands and South West.
