The HCS project will replace and significantly upgrade the signalling and train control systems on Perth’s passenger rail network, allowing more trains to run more often.

The number of trains running on Perth’s passenger rail network is expected to grow significantly in coming years, with the completion of several METRONET projects.

The new system, once its delivered and commissioned, will continuously send real-time train data to Transperth, allowing them to monitor the speed and location of every train on Perth’s growing rail network.

The HCS project is funded by both the State and Commonwealth governments and will be delivered in stages over the next 10-years to minimise disruption to train operations.
