OCL ROLE

OCL has an established reputation and excellent working relationship with all key principal contractors on London Underground network. Our personnel have, for many years, been embedded in all Civils/Electrical & General Maintenance projects and are fully embedded with the required install standards and regulations. Projects ranging from the Fluor connect project, the SSL immunisation and Upgrade Programme (formerly managed by Metronet Rail).through to the ATC programme Greater Abelio upgrade, C2C upgrade, CP5 and most recently Cross Rail.
