Trackside Guardian


With no trackside hardware to install, Trackside Guardian is simple to deploy. This scalable solution will work with any signalling system while complementing all existing operational procedures.

The system will monitor signalling states in conjunction with requested lockout areas to ensure that all the necessary restrictions have been applied before a Signaller grants a Line Block, thereby providing assurance to the track worker that sufficient protection is in place.

This also provides the Signaller with a greater situational awareness and both the Signaller and the Controller of Site Safety (CoSS) have the added assurance that an alert will inform them of any trains approaching on any lines adjacent to their worksite.



The intense focus across the rail sector in support of Network Rail’s drive to improve track worker safety has resulted in the development of many effective solutions from the supply chain.

Hitachi is keenly aware of the importance of delivering connected solutions that drive efficiencies and reduce costs. It has never been more important for the supply chain to collaborate and we would welcome discussions with like-minded organisations.
