Tunnel Radio Communication  

Radio communication systems are a key part of the tunnelling health and safety 'toolbox'. Communication between workers underground is vital to ensure everyone is kept informed in a fast moving area. In addition to voice communication, location monitoring is also important, especially on longer tunnel drives. 
 
CommTrack engineers have been involved in tunnel construction projects for the last ten years, working on projects such as Crossrail, Lower Lea Valley Cable Tunnels, Croydon Cable Tunnel, Holmesdale Road Tunnel, Bell Common Road Tunnel, and many other tunnels. 
 
Many tunnel construction sites use leaky feeder cable to enable reliable communication underground, CommTrack are experts are designing, deploying and supporting leaky feeder systems. 
Why do tunnelling sites require radio communication systems: 
 
Allow constant communication between users below ground  
Productivity and logistics 
Relaying of telemetry and data control, such as gas monitoring and fan control 
Emergency communications for fire brigade 
Location monitoring of people 
Access control 
Allow telephone access to workers underground 
Transportation of data from TBM and machinery underground 
Why CommTrack? 
 
CommTrack work with some of the biggest tunnel construction companies in the UK. We build, test, and integrate systems in the UK and have engineers deployed regularly underground supporting our radio systems 
 
All our engineers are confined space trained and are experienced working in challenging areas.
