Victoria to upgrade signalling infrastructure for Cranbourne-Pakenham Lines

Victoria's Government announced (12-Nov-2021) it will commence the installation of high-capacity signalling (HCS) systems on the Cranbourne and Pakenham lines from mid Dec-2021. The deployment programme is expected to deliver network grades ahead of the Metro Tunnel opening in 2025. Transport infrastructure minister Jacinta Allan stated: "This new technology is the key to running more trains, more often and slashing travel times... These works will enable bigger and better trains to run more frequently through the Metro Tunnel when it opens in 2025". [more - original PR]
