WSP CCS Solutions encompasses everything from traditional colour light signalling to the most advanced moving block automated solutions, from control floor to trackside, and the integration of the end-to-end solution from concept to commissioning.
Delivering the Right Solution for your Railway
WSP has a global presence in the CCS market. We have subject matter experts in all aspects of CCS including traffic management, train control, signalling and the secure communications systems associated with train operations and bring experience gained on deployments around the world. Our engineers have worked on mainline, metro, urban and light railway deployments in Europe. North America, South America, Australasia, Asia and the Middle East.
We couple this with an unparalleled understanding of railway operations. WSP is a market leader in railway operations planning and modelling and bringing new systems into service - and what we bring is a combination of operational and technological expertise to ensure the delivery of an effective solution that is right for the railway.
Many of the latest CCS solutions are at the cutting edge of train control or are required to interface with legacy systems, some with a 100-year heritage. Being at the cutting edge means the world of CCS is becoming more complex and more complicated than at any previous time and that delivering it requires a different approach and critical insight.
The array of technologies on the market is extensive, not everyone has the ability to draw on insight from across them. WSP’s unique global position means we can. Our subject matter experts have expertise in:
- CBTC (GoA2, 3 and 4) applied to metro, urban and mainline railways
- ETCS (Level 1 and 2) applied to metro, urban and mainline railways
- ATO over ETCS (Level 3 Hybrid) including highspeed lines
- Freight Line deployments of ETCS and CBTC
- ATS and TMS control layers.
Implementing any new system brings risk – but a robust approach to applying systems engineering, coupled with technical expertise, reduces that risk.
Our experts bring successful execution from a portfolio of projects to bring control and rigour to your programme.
Future-proofing your railway means implementing the technology now that is easily maintainable, scalable and upgradable to meet the demands of the future. Bringing on-board a systems integration specialist means you master the complexity and deliver the system you need for the future.
Our engineers provide both interim management and outsourced services, they will work with you from scope definition to final execution to ensure you get the right support, balancing demands and specialist skills between our global front-line offices and support teams around the world.
They will deliver their scope and provide on-going advice and guidance to help you understand your support requirements as they evolve and as your project matures.
WSP have CCS experts around the globe working with OEMs and Infrastructure Managers on both train and trackside infrastructure projects. This diversity of our experience enables us to bring best practice and lessons learnt from current and in-operation international projects. Preventing you making the same mistakes as others, optimising the delivery and helping you develop a global network of our clients who are undertaking similar projects.
