Siemens wins contracts to upgrade Sydney rail network
MUNICH, 6 days
Siemens Mobility has been awarded two contracts worth around AU$190 million by the New South Wales (NSW) Government in Australia to significantly upgrade the rail network in metropolitan Sydney, one of the busiest networks in the southern hemisphere.
This work will improve the overall efficiency and capacity of the rail network. The total contract consists of two key packages, including the introduction of a new Traffic Management System (TMS) along with the upgrading of the Sydney Trains’ network conventional signalling to a digital ETCS-L2 train control system.
This work is part of the NSW Government’s broader Digital Systems Program, a ‘once in a generation change’ to replace legacy signalling and train control technologies with modern, internationally proven, intelligent systems. The systems are due to be available for operation in 2023.

New technology helps "mind gap"

Date Time
New technology helps “mind gap”
Rubber gap filler technology is being trialed at Circular Quay, to improve safety and accessibility across the Sydney Trains network.
Minister for Transport and Roads Andrew Constance said the technology is an innovative way of preventing people falling between the platform and the train.
“Circular Quay is one of the busiest stations and has one of the highest number of falls between the platform and train on the Sydney Trains network, with children and elderly customers most likely to fall and be injured,” Mr Constance said.
“Parts of the rail network are more than 165 years old and there is no one-stop-shop solution to preventing customer falls. Every platform has unique properties such as gradients, curves and varying heights, and requires a tailored, engineered approach.”

oOh!Media surge sets tongues wagging

oOh!Media surge sets tongues wagging
The adland rumour mill is running hot with speculation over who’s been victorious in Sydney Trains’ long-running and highly lucrative tender for outdoor advertising.
The rumours usually hold ASX-listed oOh!Media the contract’s loser. But Sydney Trains insists that no decision has been made. It contacted bidders this week telling them to disregard the rumours, and told us the same thing on Thursday afternoon.
Sydney Trains insists no one has yet been awarded its lucrative outdoor advertising contract.  
Ben Rushton
It is into these circumstances that we’ve been trying to explain oOh!Media’s perplexing 8.4 per cent gain on Thursday. It’s all the more confounding for coming on a day when the only major announcement should, all things being equal, portend poorly.

The $1 billion plan to increase Sydney's peak-hour train capacity

“Moving Bankstown Line services to the new standalone metro system removes an existing bottleneck and frees up capacity to deliver more services on other lines where it’s needed,” he said.
“One billion dollars in funding ensures we’re future-proofing the existing rail network to keep pace with demand.”
While patronage has recently pushed close to 70 per cent of pre-pandemic levels, the network spent much of 2020 operating at or below 50 per cent.
“The vaccine is going to change things and people are going to get their confidence back,” Mr Constance said.

Hours after NSW Attorney-General Mark Speakman called on locals to not graffiti on Sydney streets for Graffiti Removal Day - a seven-metre honorary mural he unveiled has been left vandalised.
Mr Speakman inaugurated the portrait of former Rural Fire Service boss Shane Fitzsimmons yesterday and said the artwork would remove the "temptation" to graffiti.
"Graffiti Removal Day is a reminder of the scourge of graffiti that still faces us here in New South Wales. The bad news is that graffiti clean ups cost us $300m annually, but the good news is that graffiti crime is on the downward trend," he said.

Buses replaced some services across the network.
“[The fire] has had an impact on the network and the operation for the afternoon,” Sydney Trains chief executive Suzanne Holden said.
“We’re fortunate that there’s no damage to the network or electricity but we did have to take the power down and that was really the impact on the operation, giving emergency services the opportunity to clear the network.”
Emergency services were called to Hornsby about 2pm.
Commuters experienced major delays on the Sydney Trains network after a freight train caught fire in Hornsby.
Ms Holden said Sydney Trains was regularly updating transport apps to keep people informed about delays throughout peak hour.

Audit confirms June cyber incident took place.
A ransomware attack was behind a three-day systems outage at NSW’s State Transit Authority earlier this year, the state’s auditor-general has confirmed.
In June, the
Sun-Herald reported that Transport for NSW was investigating an outage that insiders had described as a “malicious hack”.
It saw the bus operator revert to paper-based processes, including for the scheduling of buses, across all eight bus depots.
At the time, outgoing transport secretary Rodd Staples downplayed any link between the outage and a cyber security incident.
“Based on information to date we do not believe this is linked to any other incident. Transport for NSW continues to invest in the highest level of cyber defence,” he told
