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.
Work is expected to commence in early-2022.
