The Metro Tunnel Project is bringing next-generation signalling a step closer on some of the busiest lines on Melbourne’s train network.

Epping-based TTM Rail has been awarded the $1.6 million contract to fit out two X’Trapolis trains for High Capacity Signalling testing on the Mernda Line. As part of the Metro Tunnel, High Capacity Signalling will be installed on the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Sunbury Lines and allow trains to safely run closer together.

Family-owned TTM Rail has a long history of delivering technology products and services to major transport projects.

Work has already begun to prepare the track between Epping and South Morang stations for testing to begin in 2020.
