Ansalso STS will lead the consortium and its share of the contract is worth £15.15m. It will install an SEI CBI computer-based interlocking signalling system with axle counters.

Under its £19.35m part of the deal, Linbrooke will be responsible for the signalling and power construction works, along with the telecommunications system design and construction. Linbrooke will also be in charge of testing the new systems.

Work on the project begins in February and is due to be commissioned in March 2018.
