Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
THE federal Government's interstate rail corporation will deploy a $62.3 million train management system and CDMA communications network developed by aerospace group Lockheed Martin under a new agreement announced today.
MAY 05, 2005
Funded out of the government's $12.5 billion AusLink land transport plan, the Advanced Train Management Project will encompass improvements including on-board signalling, GPS location systems and new warning systems.
A new communications system based on Telstra's CDMA network would replace nine current communications systems with a single network, the Australian rail Track Corporation (ARTC) said.
The new systems would allow more trains to use ARTC track, at a higher level of safety, the organisation said.
ARTC chief executive officer David Marchant said the systems would bring Australia into line with the highest international standards in train management and communications.
Federal funding for the project will include $42 million for an interoperable communications network and $20.3 million to develop a blueprint for the advanced train management system (ATMS).
Interoperable communications has become an issue for train operators around the country, with several national industry bodies considering interoperability and standards issues.
NSW's RailTrack this week asked for submissions from industry that will be used to develop plans for a new digital radio network for the state's trains.
