The WA Government is calling on signalling and system experts to submit Expressions of Interest to help deliver METRONET’s High Capacity Signalling Project.
It will replace the rail network’s ageing signalling and control systems with a modern integrated communications-based train control operation.
The new system will continuously send real-time train data to the control centre, which will use it to monitor the speed and location of every train, to future-proof and utilise the existing network more efficiently by allowing trains to safely run more frequently.
The contract for a new state-of-the-art METRONET public transport operation centre, which will be built to house the control centre, was recently awarded to ADCO Construction Pty Ltd.
The High Capacity Signalling Project will be delivered in stages to minimise disruption to operations, with the rollout expected to be carried out over 10 years.
The contract to design, supply, build and maintain the High Capacity Signalling is expected to be awarded mid-2023.
All information on the Expressions of Interest can be found on TendersWA.
