Package 6 (HV Feeders) F2068 Milestone

Delivery milestone update. We’re pleased to confirm F2068 TCR works were completed last week, to programme. Part of the Package 6 (HV Feeders), improving traction power resilience for Network Rail’s Wessex commuters.

This saw the successful commissioning of an existing TCR on to a newly install pilot cable over the weekend.

Package 6 consists of four HV feeder renewals including new pilot cabling and interface with the existing AC and DC protection systems. Projects are design, procurement and build.

Forty-five kilometres of cable have been installed as part of the Package 6 HV feeder renewal, along with cable management systems of 7km, consisting of various Under Track Crossings with 1km of buried route through Winchester and Eastleigh station car parks, along with cable troughing and post-route cable containment. The package also contains 1600m of new walkway installed and integrated into the new cable route.
