Emtelle delivers trackside fibre to Edinburgh-tweedbank Rail – Borders based company delivers trackside blown fibre to provide signalling and communication systems for the new Borders Railway from Edinburgh to Tweedbank.
When Her Majesty The Queen officially opens the new line on Wednesday 9th September it will mark nearly five decades without train services in the area. The return of the train line will provide opportunities for the area – as it is expected to carry almost 650,000 passengers annually. Emtelle is delighted to have provided the trackside blown fibre solution for the communication systems and signalling.
Due to the engineering and economic challenges of building a new railway in modern times, Emtelle engaged and worked with Network Rail Scotland to design and deliver an innovative fibre optic network for deployment trackside using automated trenching technologies.

We are excited about the new trainline to the area and the opportunities it will bring” Simon Wade Sales Manager Fttx/Rail Emtelle UK & Ireland.
