The Project:

When the decision was taken to continue and enhance rail services provided from the Severn Tunnel Junction, it was decided to carry out a long overdue, comprehensive services and systems refurbishment of the four platform station.

Vitec Operations:

Vitec was commissioned to design and manage the installation of the Customer Information Systems (CIS) and CCTV at this important rail network junction station.

The CIS systems design included the positioning of summary information display boards at the station’s entrances with additional ‘next train’ indicator units on each platform all linked to a central 24/7 monitoring at Cardiff Central station.

In order to ensure passenger safety within the station environment a new CCTV system was designed to monitor all entrances, exits and waiting shelters and again, these were linked to a central monitoring unit in Cardiff.

The design also specified a new terminal and modem installation to provide the telephony infrastructure for the CIS and CCTV systems.

Upon completion all systems were approved by Network Rail standard RT/SP/TEL/30022.
