Nottingham Tram Extension

As part of the Nottingham Tram Phase 2 the joint Venture partners Taylor Woodrow and Alstom supplied, installed and commissioned a new CCTV system and a new Operational Data Network (ODN), for the new Tram Routes known as Lines B&C. Included within the main contract was the requirement to install a new backbone to the existing tram route known as Line One, and migrate and replace the existing tram stop equipment and upgrade the CCTV Cameras and Help Point from analogue to digital format.

Scope of Work

The project required Kelly Rail to provide cabling, civils and electrical services to Taylor Woodrow / Alstom. The project was delivered to 23 Sites over a 12 week programme. In total replacing 75 cameras and 35 Help Points.

The services included installation of the Help Points (gai tronics), CCTV camera, PSU (Pelco) TVM’s, Validators , Induction Loops , LLPA, CIS and replacing the existing SCADA system.

The works included; installation of power & data (fibre & copper) cabling from the existing tram stop’s telecom equipment cabinet; termination and testing of copper cables; fibre splicing; termination and reflectometry testing.

The Project also required Kelly Rail to install a new Traction Power Supply which involved the installation of approximately 1 million metres of power cable and terminating and testing of the HV Power Cable.

Key success factors and innovations

Kelly Rail provided a review of the clients’ proposed installation methodology and reworked the interface points to allow for minimal operation downtime during the changeovers. This provided substantial material savings to the client.
