Our Engineering team will work with you from project inception through to delivery and beyond. We specialise in translating the sometimes dense language of railway signalling into a form that is understandable and useful to both the operator and the customer.

We provide engineering services across a wide variety of legacy and modern technology systems. We will work with you to identify and recommend the best solutions.

From concept layouts through to detailed design, the RCS Australia engineering team is able to deliver all aspects of a railway signalling system.


With specialist resources including electrical and mechanical, our construction team can deliver stand-alone signalling works or integrate into a larger project team working across all facets of a rail project.

RCS Australia has a fabrication facility to receive and store materials as well as to build equipment huts and housings. Working either to an internally produced or a client-supplied design, the team will build to the highest standards and prepare for shipment to site.

When on the ground, the construction team can undertake the civil, electrical and mechanical works in a live rail or a green-field environment using their expertise in the rail corridor to ensure that all work is of the highest quality.


Our testing team will ensure that the signalling system being installed meets all the requirements for quality, safety and efficiency. Co-located with the construction team, independent verification of equipment huts and housing built by us or by others can occur before equipment is shipped to site.

RCS Australia can help plan and manage signal commissionings including planning minor and major shutdowns and multidisciplinary works. We supply on-site testing resources including equipment testers, Principles Testers and Testers-In-Charge.

The RCS Australia testing team will ensure that your project is commissioned safely and efficiently while being coordinated with other works being undertaken.


RCS Australia has a proven track record of implementing new and advanced technology to projects in Australia and overseas. We have frequently been involved in ‘first of type’ projects deploying new technology as well as using existing technology in an innovative way.

Recognising that alternative technologies exist outside the traditional rail environment, we have pioneered the use of new equipment types in the safety critical environment of rail networks. We are particularly interested in finding the optimal balance of value-for-money and innovation to make sure we provide the best solutions for our customers.
