    "4Tel has delivered complex train control systems contract on time and within budget. The Network Management Centre commissioning date was met with no slippage, and only one contract variation, which can be attributed to a no fault data delay. The systems that 4Tel were contracted to provide have been professionally delivered. I am pleased to recommend the company and their work."
