Rail Operations Centre (ROC)
The NSW Government is investing in a state-of-the-art Rail Operations Centre (ROC) which will minimise delays and ensure when incidents do occur on the Sydney Trains rail network, customers receive better and faster information.
The ROC will modernise how Sydney’s rail network is controlled by incorporating dozens of different systems into a single location and changing our approach to managing trains.
At the moment we manage the trains and tracks, respond to incidents, communicate with customers and monitor safety from different locations and in different ways.
The ROC will help ensure Sydney Trains can continue to improve the service it provides to customers.
The state-of-the-art ROC will be built in Alexandria, close to Green Square Station.
Construction is currently underway.
A review of environmental factors (REF) was finalised in October 2016.
The ROC is planned to be operational in 2018.
- Four level building (including a double-height top floor) plus a plant room located on the roof, housing Sydney Trains’ train network control centre and support functions
- Architecturally designed red brick building incorporating arches reminiscent of historical railway bridges and the local industrial heritage
- Will be in use 24 hours a day, seven days a week
- Pedestrian access to the building from both Wyndham and Mandible streets
- A car park with entry and exit via a ramp on Mandible Street.
