SCADA & SMS
We have designed, specified and delivered SCADA and station management systems for a wide range of different applications on surface and underground rail infrastructure.
We work with railway operators to develop control engineering concepts by understanding the working environment and the safety factors required. We produce robust functional specifications. Our engineers develop the engineering, programming and integration of the system.
We source product from the market ensuring we are free to use the best solution for the application. We use open software platforms that can be modified by any suitably trained personnel.
We build optimised maintenance strategies into all our systems. We have a large facility in Cheshunt where we carry out factory acceptance testing and carry out full system configuration tests using simulated field devices. This means that the system is only delivered to site following full acceptance testing and customer witnessing. See Case Studies >

Renewable technology, energy conservation and sustainability are at the forefront of modern railway design. Fully embracing these principles our team have expertise...
We are a telecommunications integrator. We develop user requirements into robust design solutions across the spectrum of system technologies.
We undertake a wide range of surveying tasks such as asset condition, spatial, cable tracing, record correlation, buried services, utilities etc. We deploy staff with the right technical experience to identify...
BIM allows us to create and manipulate our installations in a virtual world, showing how they integrate with all other elements of the built environment so our clients and stakeholders can visualise exactly...
ELECTRIFICATION & PLANT
We cover 750V DC supplies; substations; impedance protection systems; earthing and bonding solutions for both AC & DC scenarios;
SYSTEMS INTERFACE MANAGEMENT
Progressing construction works in the operational environment requires comprehensive planning of cabled infrastructure.
CONTROL ROOM DESIGN
We recognise the operation of a control room has critical implications which create higher demands on engineering than for other built space.
Our Consulting Engineering division provides professional services for telecommunications, building services and associated railway systems.
We have a large team of industry professionals who we can deploy to help support and deliver rail infrastructure projects.

Fourway are a STAKE contractor. This is a 5 year framework for the refurbishment of 70 underground stations. We provide both design and construction services direct to London Underground across a broad range of station assets and systems.
Contracted to deliver the telecommunications for Crossrail's C350 contract, Fourway separated the project into two elements: Firstly the design and installation of new systems for the fit out of the new DLR station and secondly the design and migration of existing control systems from the old Pudding Mill Lane Station to the new.
Fourway designed and delivered the telecommunication requirements for Reading Station Area Redevelopment through a series of contracts. Starting at GRIP 4 Fourway worked with Tata and Grimshaw to develop the scheme to conclusion under Costain Hochtief.
Under PIP, Paddington Station was significantly remodelled to integrate new Crossrail, LU and NR requirements. Fourway provided the communications engineering through a variety of commissions and delivery packages to complete the works.
