Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
The major AU$107 million contract will see the installation of state-of-the-art technology for Queensland’s New Generation Rollingstock fleet.
The installation of the signalling technology will provide automation to elements for the fleet which will provide enhanced safety as well as providing an increase in capacity for passenger rail services in the area.
Hitachi Rail’s Automatic Train Operation will be installed over European Train Control System Level 2 technology for all New Generation Rollingstock trains. Automatic Train Operation automatically controls the train’s traction and braking in order to continuously calculate optimum speed whilst the European Train Control System provides signalling technology which monitors a train’s movement and speed limit for the track. Bringing the two innovative systems together will see trains able to run safely whilst allowing them to operate closer together, which will provide Queensland Rail customers with an increased number of services.
