CENTRALISED SIGNALLING CONTROL AND SUPERVISION OF THE SERVICES ON THE LONDON UNDERGROUND

It is the policy of London Transport to supervise the operation of its railroad services from central control rooms, each covering at least one line. The lines are, where possible, operated independently of each other so that a disruption in any part of the system is contained, leaving the remainder unaffected. Each room is connected to local signaling interlockings which normally operate individually in an automatic mode. If there is a disruption, delays are minimized by regulating the service from the central control room. Traffic regulators in these rooms are able to coordinate the routing of trains through the various local interlockings; each traffic regulator is provided with a control console from which changes may be carried out.
