Railsys Limited is supporting Network Rail IP Signalling on the Weaver to Wavertree Resignalling Project.
The Project known as ‘WeWa’ is on the West Coast Main Line (WCML) between Weaver Junction and Wavertree Junction which is a distance of 16 miles. The area is controlled by five Signal Boxes; Halton, Runcorn, Ditton, Speke and Allerton. The main running lines, consist of a 2 track railway from Weaver Junction to Runcorn Viaduct (approximately 7 miles), then a 4 track railway from Runcorn Viaduct to Wavertree Junction (approximately 9 miles). 25kV AC Overhead Line Equipment (OLE) is provided throughout.
The Weaver to Wavertree Signalling Renewal project proposes to re-signal and re-control, to a new duplicated workstation at the Manchester ROC.
Railsys is providing the Lead Design Organisation role providing integration with neighbouring projects and between the two Contractors involved namely Siemens & Buckinghams.
