About this event

The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) started operational service in 1987. This automated, driverless railway has been at the heart of the development of the Docklands area for 30 Years. Together with KeolisAmey Docklands, the franchise operator and maintainer, DLR’s dedicated and high performing teams work together to deliver service excellence every day for their customers. Whilst substantial future growth is already planned, the potential to go beyond this is huge. Always looking to the future, the DLR signalling team aims to deliver an innovative, high quality, high frequency railway for Londoners and tourist alike.
This talk will be an insider’s view of the DLR’s signalling system covering its day to day operational challenges, which range from maintaining reliability of the system to dealing with critical and obsolescence issues, as well as preparing the system to deal with future technological growth of DLR.
