Michael King – Staged Signalling Infrastructure & Commissioning
(BE) Electrical, Signalling Commissioning Engineer
Michael’s career spans over 20 years in rail infrastructure for both government organisations and private enterprise. Michael’s experience enables him the to manage complex signalling construction and commissioning engineering tasks on large scale metropolitan re-signalling schemes using his specialist insight into the constraints of delivering signalling projects in a multi-discipline environment.
Michael’s strengths lay in his ability to provide a balanced signalling approach where he can apply various degrees of adaptation of signalling staging to optimise project delivery whilst considering non signalling discipline constraints. Michael’s peripheral appreciation of all disciplines whilst maintaining signal system integrity is an extremely valued skill and in this way Michael combines with the other members of Rail Planning Services to deliver a truly balanced team of rail experienced professionals.
