London Underground is advertising for a head of systems integration to oversee the modernisation programme of the entire Tube network.
The new head of systems integration will co-ordinate the two private sector groups that manage the network with the strategy of Transport for London. The maintenance of the 253 miles of track and 275 stations that make up the Tube network is split between Metronet and Tube Lines.
Whoever gets the job will have to deliver the IT systems needed for TfL’s six major modernisation projects: the new signalling centre for the Victoria line, the link to Heathrow’s Terminal 5, the extension to the East London line, redevelopment in Watford, new interchanges and the proposed cooling system.
London Underground said that the post would be responsible for ensuring that London Underground controls the systems integration risks and activities within its network, particularly in relation to safety and reliability issues.
The strategy for the Tube network is set by the mayor of London .
