Major testing milestone for Sydney Metro

Major testing milestone for Sydney Metro

In a new major testing milestone for the Sydney Metro, all 45 metro trains have completed a least one 51-kilometre journey between Tallawong and Sydenham at operational speed.

Each train stopped at each station during the tests. These journeys aimed to confirm train and platform screen doors performed as designed. Passenger help points and information displays on the trains were also put through their paces.

The performance of each train is being monitored closely to ensure the trains, signalling and station systems are working together and functioning seamlessly along the Metro North West Line and the new City section.
