Network Rail Consulting has been awarded the system integrator contract, and will bring experience from delivering similar systems on Thameslink and on the Madrid suburban network, TfNSW said on Monday.

The program will replace trackside signalling equipment with the latest European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 technology, implement Automatic Train Operation to assist drivers in providing faster and more consistent journeys, and introduce a traffic management system for more effective incident management and service regulation across the network.

As the program’s system integrator, Network Rail will lead collaboration with key partners in the digital systems program, part of the NSW Government’s $880 million investment in technology improvements to modernise the Sydney Trains network.

Digital systems will be delivered in stages with services coming online progressively from the early 2020s, TfNSW said.
