Signal equipment

Bradken has promoted and distributed Western Cullen Hayes (WCH) railroad crossing signal equipment for more than 30 years.

Bradken is proud to be the only Australian-approved supplier of WCH products nationally after obtaining Type Approval through the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC).

Previously Bradken was only able to supply WCH products for installation under a ‘grandfather’ clause, meaning the parts could only be installed by rail maintainers as replacement parts on existing WCH rail crossings. Now with the Type Approval, WCH components can be fitted as new installations on any ARTC network crossing.
