The $11.8 million Automatic Train Protection System Upgrade will upgrade existing train operations technology with a modern equivalent.
The system upgrade provides a more reliable and safer service for train operations.
This project will involve the design, installation and commissioning of ATP encoders at a number of locations, and the replacement or reconfiguration of existing equipment across the rail network.
Given the work is to upgrade back-end systems there will be little impact for passengers. The majority of the work will take place within the rail corridor to minimise disruptions to both road and rail users.
The work is expected to be complete by 2019.
