Network Rail Consulting wins Sydney work

Network Rail Consulting has been awarded a contract on an upgrade project in Sydney.

The firm, a subsidiary of the UK’s rail infrastructure operator, was appointed by Transport for New South Wales to provide systems integration services in the Australian city.

Sydney’s rail network is to be fitted with equipment to improve system performance and increase capacity.

Network Rail won work on the scheme after implementing comparable systems on UK infrastructure. A pilot scheme has been operational on the Cambrian line in Wales since 2011, and a test facility is running on a section of the East Coast Main Line in Hertfordshire.

Nigel Ash, managing director of Network Rail Consulting, said: “That Network Rail Consulting has been selected to provide advice to this strategically important project underlines the excellent work which has already been carried out on the railway in Britain.

“Transport for New South Wales will directly benefit from sharing the most up-to-date train control information and we look forward to working with them on this immensely important programme to deliver a better railway in and around Sydney.”
