A fault control center is described which keeps a record of all the faults reported and attended to at each junction, such other records as are needed to follow up any orders placed, and to calculate payments due between the Greater London Council and the contractors. Signal maintenance experience is described, and progress with the new contract is discussed. Points of practical experience are reviewed and include such aspects as changeable work, elusive faults, detectoral maintenance, signal maintenance, day and night service, periodic inspections, lamp changing, and road safety and signal faults. The need is indicated for an organization (inspectorate) to deal with elusive faults, the analysis of records of different types of faults, and follow up inspection based on the analysis. The introduction of an inspectorate is anticipated.
