Network Rail Consulting has been appointed by Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) to provide systems integration services as part of a major upgrade of Sydney’s rail network.
The Advanced Train Control programme currently under development will see the rail network in Sydney fitted with new equipment to enable improved system performance and provide increased capacity for passenger and freight services. The program will play a key role in delivering the NSW Government’s Sydney’s Rail Future objectives which include enhancing operational safety, delivering greater levels of customer service, reducing costs and producing faster and more reliable rail services.
“The need to deliver a safe, efficient, reliable railway while boosting capacity to cater for growing passenger and freight demand is something Network Rail shares with many rail operators. That Network Rail Consulting has been selected to provide advice to this strategically important project underlines the excellent work which has already been carried out on the railway in Britain.
Transport for New South Wales will directly benefit from sharing the most up-to-date train control information and we look forward to working with them on this immensely important programme to deliver a better railway in and around Sydney,” said Nigel Ash, managing director, Network Rail Consulting.
