Cygnus protects largest European construction project

Did you know that the workers in the Crossrail tunnels are being protected by the Cygnus alarm system?

The £15 billion project will accommodate 200 million passengers a year, delivering 10 new stations including Paddington, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road.

The current phase of the project includes the installation of tracks across a 26-mile tunnel, in which an alarm system with a high signal strength and connectivity was required in order to protect workers and the site around the clock.

Initially the project was due for completion in December 2018 but a new plan has recently been constructed to complete outstanding works and bring the Elizabeth line into passenger service at the earliest possible date.

The Cygnus alarm system has provided the ideal solution to Crossrail due to its powerful radio, long-range connectivity and ability to overcome signal obstacles.

Bradley Markham, Director at Bull Products, says: “The Crossrail project will completely transform the infrastructure in London. But with that comes a lot of risks and challenges that workers face on a daily basis such as fires breaking out and intruders accessing the site out of hours. We are delighted that our alarm system has been installed to offer maximum safety as the project progresses.”
