2:40 PM Digital Signalling for Regional Fast Rail to Support Regional Development and Strong Metropolitan Growth

Regional Fast Rail is an emerging trend in Australia, becoming an interest to the four biggest cities with substantial support by the Commonwealth government. Regional Fast Rail refers to express railway connections with limited stops between large cities and surrounding regional centres at speeds of 160-250 kilometres per hour. By reducing commuting times to about one hour or less, Regional Fast Rail can ultimately transform regional centres into metropolitan satellites, supporting regional development and strong metropolitan growth alike. This session will look at selecting modern digital signalling technology for Regional Fast Rail and include:

  • Network versus line-by-line considerations
  • How important is interoperability
  • Future-proofing the solution
  • A case study from a surprising place
