High Capacity Signalling

High Capacity Signalling

The High Capacity Signalling Project will upgrade the existing signalling and control systems to an integrated Communications-Based Train Control system, making better use of the existing rail network by allowing more trains to run more often.

A new state-of-the-art METRONET public transport operation centre will be built to deliver the project.

 

This Public Transport Operations Control Centre will include a centralised signalling equipment room, network control floors and office space in East Perth.

It will house the infrastructure and personnel needed to manage the day-to-day operations of Perth’s public transport network, which will expand by more than 72km in coming years as various METRONET projects become operational.

For more information, please see the High Capacity Signalling Fact Sheet.

Public Transport Operations Control Centre

In preparation for the future growth of the rail network, a new Public Transport Operations Control Centre will be built 100m north of the Public Transport Centre.

This state-of-the-art facility will house the infrastructure and personnel needed to manage the day-to-day operations of Perth’s expanding public transport network.

It will include a centralised signalling equipment room, network control space and additional office accommodation.

Work is expected to commence in mid-2022 with expected completion in late-2023.
