Here is a selection of our latest projects.

Cross River Rail

2019 – 2023
BRISBANE

Cross River Rail

2019 – 2023
BRISBANE

A $5.4 billion dollar project to build a new 10.2 km rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills including a tunnel from Dutton Park to Normanby and the construction of four new railway stations.

RCS Australia has been contracted to undertake signalling design, construction, installation, testing and commissioning for the Rail, Integration and Systems (RIS) ‘Unity’ alliance. 

The programme of works extends to 2023 and provides RCS Australia with an opportunity to utilise its experience in multi-disciplinary delivery teams and to draw upon its expertise with the Brisbane sub-urban signalling system.

Inland Rail, Parkes to Narromine

2019 – 2020
NEW SOUTH WALES

Inland Rail, Parkes to Narromine

2019 – 2020
NEW SOUTH WALES

The Parkes to Narromine (P2N) section is one of 13 projects that complete Inland Rail. We are upgrading 98.4km of existing rail track and building 5.3km of new rail near Parkes. The project includes a full rebuild of the rail tracks, rail formation and supporting structures in the existing rail corridor.

RCS Australia has been contracted to undertake the signalling, construction and testing and commissioning of the first stage of the Inland Rail project.

Low Cost Level Crossings

2016 – 2017
BRISBANE

Low Cost Level Crossings

2016 – 2017
BRISBANE

RCS Australia responded to a request from Queensland Rail for a low-cost level crossing solution to be deployed across regional Queensland.

Our works included upgrading high risk passive rail crossings to active protection through design, procurement, construction, and testing & commissioning. RCS Australia used our developed SIL4 solution – a commercial, off the shelf (COTS) hardware to holistically address the needs of the project.

Mernda Rail Extension Project

2016 – 2017
MELBOURNE

Mernda Rail Extension Project

2016 – 2017
MELBOURNE

The Mernda Rail Extension (MRE) Project continued the South Morang train line in Melbourne’s north-east approximately eight kilometres to Mernda. Changes to the current line included new track, at least two new stations and car parking, as well as new stabling facilities for trains in Mernda.

The MRE project was introduced as a government initiative to improve public transport services on the metropolitan network and to cater for Melbourne’s growing population.

RCS Australia was responsible for both the preliminary design and detailed design, and the overall testing and commissioning of the signalling infrastructure.

With the aid of RCS Australia, the MRE project was delivered six months ahead of schedule with passenger services commencing in August 2018.

Whyalla Port Expansion

2012
SOUTH AUSTRALIA

Whyalla Port Expansion

2012
SOUTH AUSTRALIA

RCS Australia delivered Arrium Mining’s Whyalla Port Expansion Project for Leighton Contractors in 2012. Our contribution involved the design and construct of a complete signalling solution located within the OneSteel steel works in Whyalla, on the upper north east coast of South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula.

The project incorporated 15 kilometres of steel track, two signalled balloon loops, 11 active level crossings, and interfaces with two existing main and several internal rail lines. RCS Australia was responsible for the scope, design, procurement, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of the system, as well as delivery of power and communication networks.

The remoteness of Whyalla meant the RCS Australia team had to conduct special planning and budgeting. Further complexities included variable cable and equipment delivery rates and having to consolidate freight from different sources. Despite these challenges, the project was a major success.

Regional Rail Link

2013 – 2015
MELBOURNE

Regional Rail Link

2013 – 2015
MELBOURNE

RCS Australia was contracted to deliver specialist signalling design services and testing and commissioning expertise for Work Pack B – specialist signalling design services and testing and commissioning expertise.

We were responsible for resignalling existing arrival yards from Melbourne CBD to Footscray, remodelling junctions to meet compliance standards as well as building signal flyovers to eliminate grade crossings and integrate with existing interlockings.
