Sydney Light Rail Inner West Extension

Sydney, NSW

NDYLTK Rail was engaged by Transport for New South Wales to assist with the acquisition of new 100% low floor light rail vehicles to support the expansion of the Sydney Light Rail system from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill, a 6km double track light rail electrification and LRV procurement project.

NDYLTK Rail also provided the operational interface between Transport for New South Wales, contract operator Transdev, LRV supplier CAF, and systems contractor
John Holland.

In addition, NDYLTK Rail provided commissioning management for the vehicles and infrastructure. Major construction elements undergoing commissioning included three traction power substations, 6km of double track overhead wiring, automatic train protection system, SCADA system, nine stations with passenger information systems, maintenance facility and control centre upgrades, and a storage yard.

Commissioning also included the integration of new and existing systems with existing and new LRVs. This was an accelerated delivery program, achieving operational startup in March 2014.
