Modernising the London underground

To help transport operator TfL (Transport for London) cater for rising demand, Thales is implementing SelTrac™ CBTC signalling across the District, Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines – four of London’s busiest routes.

The upgrade will mean faster and more frequent journeys for millions of passengers, with capacity up by a third.

The main benefits will be delivered by 2022, when the frequency of trains at peak periods will increase to 32 trains per hour in central London.
