Vextrix has been appointed by our client Pod-Trak to deliver Engineering Design services and Engineering Assurance services to support the Swinderby Re-Signalling enhancement project. The project includes the re-signalling and re-control of the Swinderby signalling area which is approximately sixteen miles.
The works include the conversion of four level crossings: Cottage Lane, Collingham, Hykeham and Swinderby and in addition the renewal of Swinderby Road AHBC to AHBC- X. The project has been contracted through a professional services sub-contract between Pod-Trak and Vextrix, with Vextrix appointed to provide multi-disciplinary design services in collaboration with our client Pod-Trak and Alstom on behalf of Network Rail.
The team has been appointed to deliver dual roles on the project under the Agile Client Eastern (ACE) regime, in which Network Rail delegate engineering assurance onto the project team. Vextrix has been appointed to deliver dual roles on the project with responsibilities as Contractor’s Responsible Engineer (CRE) and Project Engineer (PE) under ACE, often referred to as a ‘Responsible Engineer’ role. Under the ACE self-assurance process, the Responsible Engineer role operates as a combined Project Engineer (PE) and Contractors Responsible (CRE) role.
Vextrix is responsible for delivering a range of services including, proactively leading and engaging in systems integration, hazard management and safety assurance, single-discipline packages of work and the management of competence, robust checking, and approvals.
