About Park Signalling

Park Signalling is an SME delivering engineered solutions and consultancy for railway signalling and telecommunications. The Company formed in 2000 by key staff from the former Manchester office of Alstom Signalling. We have a core staff of 20 – predominately experienced engineers, specialist in their field. This is supplemented by a similar number of part-time associates that either provide additional resource and/or specialism, who contribute as dictated by requirements. We offer exceptional knowledge and vast experience, a pioneering approach to problem solving, an innovative design and development capability, coupled with an extensive range of products and services. We have carried out research leading to patent submissions and won RSSB innovation award. Park Signalling brings industrial experience to the analysis of the Virtual Coupling Communication Structures.

Role in the Project

Park Signalling leads Work Package 3. They focus on the Virtual Coupling Communication Structure. The Park Signalling research team will be drawn from Principal Engineer Colin Exley, Senior Engineer John Marsden, Design Engineer Robin Lee and a Graduate Engineer. The Park Signalling Technical Steering group will consist of Consultant Dr Alan Cribbens, Product Safety Director William Redfern, and Engineering Director Mark Cooper. The group has sufficient experience as is reflected from previous projects and publications.


The project will bring forward innovative concepts of “moving-block” railway traffic operations by (1) advancing testing methods for ETCS Level 3 and (2) Analysing Virtual Coupling which will lead to convoys of automated trains under cooperative adaptive control.
