Maintenance contract awarded for Melbourne Metro signalling

Bombardier Transportation will maintain the new signalling system on the Melbourne Metro for 10 years after signing a contract with Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM).

The high-capacity signalling system is being delivered for the new Melbourne Metro Tunnel Project. The contract is valued at approximately $60 million and includes an option for five additional years of maintenance.

Andrew Dudgeon, Managing Director of Bombardier Transportation Australia, said: “This order reflects our ongoing commitment to improving urban mobility across Melbourne. Bombardier’s range of signalling services will enhance rail network performance and greatly improve the passenger experience.”

Bombardier will deliver a full-service package from its rail control services solution, which provides intelligent data analysis and predictive functionalities to prevent failures.

Bombardier has been delivering products to Australia for more than 60 years, including 237 Vlocity commuter rail cars and 210 iconic E-Class trams for the Victoria region.
