Network Rail to upgrade Sydney’s rail network
Network Rail Consulting, a subsidiary of Britain’s rail infrastructure owner and operator Network Rail, has been appointed by Australia’s 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 Sydney's rail network fitted with new equipment to enhance system performance and provide increased capacity for passenger and freight services. The programme 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.
