What we did:
MRC Engineering were contracted to undertake the combined GRIP 5 SISS Detailed Design for the third entrance at Snow Hill Station.
Snow Hill Station project was part of a new pedestrian access to be built on the north side of the station to enable access from Lionel Street and the metro access onto St Chads Queensway. This new access point joined into the existing subway and 2nd access onto Livery street which was completed in 2009.
The Scope for the SISS equipment for this project will be limited to the following:
Amendments and enabling of existing SISS assets which are foul of the works site
Provision of new PA speakers to the 3rd entrance
Provision of new AFIL (PA) to new 3rd entrance
Provision of new CCTV cameras to new 3rd entrance
Provision of new PHP to new 3rd entrance
Provision of new CIS screen to new 3rd entrance
Provision (Passive – Cabling only) for new Tram CIS screen
Provision of new LAN equipment to provide CCTV connectivity
Provision of new LAN equipment to provide access to TOC revenue systems for TVM(s)
The SISS assets throughout the station were operated and maintained by either EMT or TIS. The latter organisation was responsible for assets which are operated by the WMCA (West Midlands Combined Authority) who control the equipment off site from their Summer Lane control room. The new 3rd Entrance assets are part of the system being maintained and operated by TIS/WMCA.
The following equipment is operated by the TOC:
New CIS screens
New PA speakers/AFIL
The following equipment is operated by TIS/WMCA
New CCTV Cameras
Passive provision in the form of new Data cabling was provided for the Tram operator (West Midlands Metro).
