Edinburgh Gateway - CCTV, LLPA, PHP, CIS, IDA, SCS and LAN/WAN systems

Edinburgh Gateway is located nine kilometres to the west of Edinburgh and 4.8km from Edinburgh International Airport. It is part of the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP), a major Scottish transport project involving infrastructure improvements and the electrification of most railway lines between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

This is a flagship infrastructure project for Edinburgh. It’s part of our wider plan to integrate transport across the city and surrounding region. The L.B. Foster team became an important and integral part of the overall delivery, always going the extra mile when required. Their ability to adapt and design solutions to suit contributed greatly to what is a fantastic new facility for the city.


The scope of the telecommunications and safety works that we undertook at Edinburgh Gateway included a combination of our integrated telecoms and safety solutions:

  • CCTV

  • LLPA

  • PHP

  • CIS

  • IDA

  • SCS

LAN/WAN systems. The CIS displays display Next Train Information (NTI), Summary of Arrivals (SoA) and Summary of Departures (SoD) displays. A Special Notice (SN) on the main concourse is used for engineering information. All of the displays incorporate clocks and timing signals are provided by the Dunfermline clock server utilising SNTP and NTP clients on the station servers.

The transmission of CIS information from the Dunfermline CSC to the new station was undertaken over the NR IP-MPLS network.
