Thameslink signalling reaches milestone

New signalling on the Thameslink Programme reached completion at the weekend after 10 months of work, as the old system was turned off and the new one brought into full use.

The signalling work between Kentish Town and Farringdon involved redesigning and modernising the signalling through the central London core to enable the more frequent, metro-style service that the Thameslink programme is promising to deliver.

The programme will allow more frequent passenger services to run north to south and through London and longer services are due to start running in December this year, with major station redevelopments of Blackfriars and Farringon complete by summer 2012.
