Rail Academy Signalling Upgrades

2020 – 2021

The Rail Academy, located at Newport in Melbourne, is currently the largest facility in Australia and includes more than 500 meters of off-network tracks, track vehicle operator and certification, tram and train overheads, signalling rooms, workshop space and ten classrooms. Providing engineers with the training and experience required to work on real world projects.

While the condition of the facilities and the training provided are high quality, the facility needs further upgrades to simulate a live network and real-life signalling scenarios. Upgrading the signalling systems in place substantially enhance the Rail Academy’s ability to train the next generation of rail signalling engineers, at Victoria’s only specialist rail training facility.
