Sydney Trains boss critical of $344m upgrade of Cronulla to Sutherland railway line
The New South Wales Government has signed an $80 million contract for the delivery of a new Traffic Management System (TMS) for Sydney’s rail network.
Siemens Mobility Siemens will introduce the TMS, which will be operated from the Rail Operations Centre, and will work alongside other systems used by Sydney Trains to control train operations.
The TMS continually monitors the position of all trains, helping to keep train services running as planned and assists with responses to incidents.
New South Wales Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance, said the TMS is a key component of Digital Systems – a program that will progressively replace legacy signalling and train control technologies with modern, internationally proven, intelligent systems.
“This is an important step in the process of upgrading our network with internationally proven technology that boosts safety, capacity, reliability and enhances the customer experience,” Mr Constance said.
“Sydney’s heavy rail network is the backbone of our public transport system and it’s crucial we have the latest systems and technology available to serve our customers well into the future.”
The TMS is due to be available for operation in 2023.
The Digital Systems Program aims to increase safety and reliability by:
Digital Systems will initially be deployed to two sections of the T4 Line from Sutherland to Cronulla and from Bondi Junction to Redfern.
Planning for future deployments of Digital Systems to other parts of Sydney’s rail network is currently underway.
