Cable route management system for London Underground Ltd
- CLIENT : Metronet Rail SSL Ltd as term contractor
- CONTRACTORS : The Giffen Group
- INSTALLER : Anchor Post Foundation
The service cables running beside the track on the over-ground sections of London Underground were traditionally supported by a post system that needed digging and concreting in. This method was deemed slow as only 10-12 post could be erected in a shift by 12 men.
The need was to develop a system that could be rapidly installed using a minimum amount of labour. Anchor Systems (International) Ltd developed and patented their Anchor Post system and in conjunction with Metronet Rail SSL rigorously tested the system both on and off site.
