Tender Details

The current signalling at Newnes Junction is life expired and is not suitable for remote control. The planned resignalling at Newnes Junction will replace the existing life expired signalling equipment with a modern, colour light signalling system with remote control capability. The scope of the tender is for the provision of design, construction and commissioning of the new signalling infrastructure.


The existing Newnes Junction Signal Box will become redundant but may be retained for other purposes.  It is proposed that the existing Blacktown Signal Box integrates the control of Newnes Junction interlocking.          

The objective is to provide a signalling system that is safe, reliable and to be upgraded to meet the current functional requirements of RailCorp.

In general the Contractor is responsible for the design, supply, installation, test and commission of the new works.
