Under the operations contract for the North West Rail Link, awarded today to the Northwest Rapid Transit consortium, Alstom will be responsible for the project management, design, supply, manufacturing, testing and commissioning of the rolling stock and signalling systems.

Alstom will supply 22 six-car fully-automated Metropolis train sets and the Communications Based Train Control (CBTC) signalling system.

Under the contract, the North West Rail Link is expected to open in 2019.

“Alstom’s Metropolis and computer based train control signalling systems are based on proven platforms that have been adapted to the specific needs of Sydney which will ensure fast, safe and reliable services to the residents of Sydney’s North West”, said Bernard Joyce, Managing Director of Alstom Transport in Australia and New Zealand.

Alstom’s Metropolis is a world leading, proven, safe and reliable train that serves many of the great global cities including Amsterdam, Barcelona and Singapore, with more than 10 years of operational experience in fully-automated operation. More than 4000 cars have been sold in over 40 cities.

The streamlined design for Sydney’s rapid transit trains has been developed to meet the needs of customers in Sydney.

The trains will include 3 double-doors per car for improved access and passenger flows, large windows, ambient LED lighting. They will also have the highest levels of customer safety including constant CCTV monitoring, emergency intercoms and the latest way-finding aids for customer information and real time travel information. The system will be equipped with Alstom’s world leading computer based train control system, Urbalis 400, which minimises the time stopping at stations and the times between each service ensuring a comfortable and reliable journey for all passengers.

The North West Rail Link further strengthens Alstom’s position as a leading supplier of railway infrastructure for the Australian market

The NRT consortium, made up of MTR Corporation (Australia), John Holland, Leighton Contractors, UGL Rail Services and Plenary Group, have been awarded the Operations, Trains and Systems (OTS) contract from Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW), the State’s public transport authority, to supply and operate the new rapid transit system.
