Mariyung Fleet: Stations and Signalling Modifications
Modifications and upgrades are needed to existing rail infrastructure at various locations across the electrified network to accommodate the New Intercity Fleet. Work includes:
- Platform extensions
- Modifications to infrastructure within the rail corridor, including the installation and relocation of signalling and overhead wiring structures
- Installation of balises, car markers, and trackside car markers
- Installation of CCTV, PA, lighting and station furniture, where required.
The Mariyung Fleet will feature new and better on-board technology to improve safety. This includes fire detection technology and fire-resistant materials, on board help points, internal and external CCTV cameras, internal emergency door release and fault diagnosis technology.
The Mariyung also offers the highest level of accessibility across the NSW TrainLink fleet.
At stations with short platforms, automatic selective door operation technology will ensure that only the customer doors on the platform can open.
Enabling work to accommodate the Mariyung Fleet is now complete.
Some additional modifications will be delivered by the More Trains More Services program.
Platform extension work is complete at Adamstown, Central, Gosford, Emu Plains, Hamilton, Hurstville, Katoomba, Lithgow, Penrith, Wyong and Hornsby stations.
The video below shows the Emu Plains Station platform extension work.
Car marker installation
Car markers and trackside car markers have been installed on the Central Coast and Newcastle, Blue Mountains and South Coast and Illawarra lines.
This work included spray-painting parts of the station platforms and minor work to install new or modify existing car markers signs on the platform fence.
New trackside car markers were also installed at various locations, and where necessary, modifications were made to existing car markers off the platforms.
As more platforms are extended on the South Coast and Illawarra Line, additional car marker and trackside car marker installations will be completed as part of the More Trains, More Services program.
Balise installation and programming is now complete on the Central Coast and Newcastle, Blue Mountains and South Coast and Illawarra lines.
This involved attaching electronic components to the tracks within the platform area to enhance train safety through the introduction of Automatic Selective Door Operation (ASDO) technology.
As more platforms are extended on the South Coast and Illawarra Line, balise installation and programming will be completed as part of the More Trains, More Services program.
Signalling modifications have has been completed on the Central Coast and Newcastle lines as well as on the Blue Mountains line.
Trackside car markers
Trackside car markers have been completed on the Central Coast and Newcastle, Blue Mountains line and certain locations on the South Coast and Illawarra lines.
The remaining car marker and trackside car marker installations on the South Coast and Illawarra Line will be completed as part of the More Trains, More Services project, once the required platforms are extended.
