telent awarded maintenance contract for new Elizabeth line through central London

London, U.K., 17 March 2020 ? telent, a leading UK technology and network services company, has been awarded a contract to support and maintain CCTV for the Elizabeth line, the new railway line that will service London and the South East to increase rail capacity in the city.

telent has been maintaining the system since May 2017 when the eastern section of the line from Liverpool Street to Shenfield opened. This new contract has been awarded by Transport for London (TfL).

?This contract is important to us and demonstrates our successful and longstanding commercial partnership with TfL,? said Reg Cook, Director of Asset Management at telent. ?We look forward to continuing to play a key role in the development of TfL?s transport network and in the running of this new line.?

telent will support the Driver Only Operation (DOO) CCTV system, which allows the train driver to view images from platform cameras on in-cab monitors to ensure the safe departure of the train from the station.

The contract will be delivered by telent?s Asset Management team, which has over 20 years? experience managing critical communications assets across TfL and the UK national rail and road networks.

The new agreement follows telent?s recent announcement of a seven-year contract with TfL to manage a wide and complex range of communication assets across TfL?s Underground and Surface estates.

The contract for the Elizabeth line will start on April 1 and run for at least five years. The Central section of the Elizabeth line is currently under development and is due to open from summer 2021.

The Elizabeth line will be a high frequency, high capacity service linking 41 stations over 100 kilometres from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through central London, to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.

The project required 42 kilometres of new tunnels, ten new stations, over 50 kilometres of new track, integration of three signalling systems and upgrades across existing infrastructure.
