Crewe Hub To Be First ‘All-Digital’ Station, Says Transport Chief

The title of this post is the same as that of this article in the Warrington Guardian.

This is the first three paragraphs

Delays caused by signalling faults could eventually be a thing of the past on trains running to and from Crewe.

At a meeting on Friday Pete Waterman, chairman of the Cheshire and Warrington Local Transport Body (LTB), revealed that Network Rail, the Department for Transport and HS2 Ltd have agreed that the town will become home to Britain’s first all-digital station.

It means that all trains running from Crewe to Warrington, Chester and other destinations across Cheshire would benefit from the same technology which will be used by HS2 services – meaning lines could run more efficiently with trains travelling in a tighter sequence.

I feel that increasingly, digital signalling will be used to improve capacity on UK railways.

  1. All digital – like the Metrolink in Manchester. Thales’s installation resulted in mulita-mega litigation during botched installation and suffered near total failure twice last year.
