  • Victoria Phase 5 part of Network Rail’s four-year package of upgrades to modernise 1980s track and signalling on the lines into London Victoria station.

  • £69m contract involves new signalling, infrastructure and control technology

30 March 2022 – Alstom, global leader in smart and sustainable mobility, has been awarded a £69million signalling contract by Network Rail to deliver Phase 5 of the hugely important Victoria Area Re-signalling Programme.

The announcement for the delivery stages (GRIP 5-8) of Victoria Phase 5 follows the success of the £37 million Phase 4 awarded in March 2021 which is already setting a high standard with most of the civils work already commenced. Phase 5 will see Alstom providing vital signalling upgrades in the London Victoria area over three years with this phase going live in December 2024. New technology will deliver a more reliable, lower cost and easier to maintain system, bringing greater efficiencies and improvements to help keep passengers and freight services moving. The works will particularly benefit passengers and freight services travelling between Battersea, Brixton, Herne Hill and the Catford loop by improving service reliability on the network.

Network Rail’s Three Bridges Rail Operating Centre (ROC) will control 302 new signal equivalent units (SEUs), 494 new axle counters, and 82 new Train Protection Warning System (TPWS) units linked by 86,500m of signalling cable. The project forms part of the Major Signalling Framework Agreement (MSFA) for the Southern Region which Alstom won in 2020.

“Passengers can look forward to a more reliable railway across the South London area. The improvements Alstom bring through Victoria 5, when combined with our existing Victoria 4 project, means that we can continue to realise our commitments in the Major Signalling Framework Agreement (MSFA)."

Jason Baldock
Managing Director, Digital & Integrated Solution, Alstom

Jamie Foster, Senior Programme Manager at Network Rail said, “The award of this GRIP 5-8 contract for Victoria Phase 5, the next major phase of the wider Victoria Area Re-signalling Programme, marks both end and beginning chapters of an enormous effort by the joint Network Rail and Alstom teams. Since the teams formed for the delivery of the GRIP 4 contract, they have been on a collective journey of discovery. This has focussed on safe-by-design, safe delivery principles whose goal has remained to delight the passenger and end user, and this has been delivered throughout within a culture established to promote a collaborative working environment. I look forward to continuing to be a part of these shared successes and to further witness the teams continual growth and development, with the ultimate goal of celebrating the benefits the passengers will see upon completion of the scheme early in 2025.”
