POSS on Docklands Light Railway

The first POSS system was commissioned in February 2005 at Canary Wharf station. A second system was commissioned for a pilot at Backchurch Lane Junction in 2007, where the customer compared the POSS system with a system of another RCM supplier, which was installed at the same location. The customer decided for the POSS system after that trial period. Docklands Light Railway would be the main public transport system for the Olympics in 2012. Serco therefore decided in 2010 for a network-wide roll-out of POSS on most points and all axle counters. The installation of POSS was done by Serco Dockland's own staff between the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012.

Docklands Light Railway

Docklands is an office and residential area in London built on the old East End docks of the Port of London. Public transport in this area is provided by Docklands Light Railway (DLR), a driverless rail system, connected to the London Underground at the stations of Bank and Tower Hill. A connection to London City Airport was opened at the beginning of 2006. Serco Docklands Ltd. is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the DLR. The DLR system has 40 stations and is still expanding. It carries over 60 million passengers a year.
