This is part of the state’s ‘More Trains, More Services’ digital systems project to replace existing signalling and train control technology on the network with state-of-the-art intelligent rail systems.

This will enable Sydney Trains to meet future capacity demand and improve passenger experience by delivering more reliable services, reduced journey times and enhanced real-time information.

Alstom’s Atlas and Smartlock trackside signalling technologies will be delivered between Bondi Junction and Erskineville on the Sydney Trains network this year, under a 20-year framework agreement, with the opportunity for future roll out across the broader network.

Mark Coxon, Managing Director for Alstom in Australia and New Zealand, said:

“Alstom is delighted to continue to support TfNSW to deliver their vision of transforming the Sydney rail network.

“The digital systems programme will provide a step-change in operations for Sydney Trains and NSW Trains, and Alstom is committed to partnering with TfNSW to deliver a sustainable, innovative and value for money solution for the state.”

The project is expected to be fully operational in 2024.
