Bombardier to maintain Melbourne Metro Tunnel signalling

Bombardier Transportation has signed a contract with Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) to provide ten years of maintenance services for its rail control solution being delivered for Melbourne’s new Metro Tunnel Project. The contract is valued at approximately 77 million Australian dollars (48 million Euros) and includes an option for five additional years of maintenance services.

Bombardier will provide its full-service package from its Optiflo rail control services solution including the advanced EBI Tool Maintenance and Diagnostics Centre (MDC) which provides intelligent data analysis and predictive functionalities to prevent failures.

Rail control solution

In December 2017, Bombardier, as part of the Rail Systems Alliance (RSA), won the contract to install its high-capacity rail control solution for the 11 billion Australian dollars Metro Tunnel Project in Melbourne, Victoria’s largest ever investment in public transport.

Andrew Dudgeon, Managing Director of Bombardier Transportation Australia, said, “This order reflects our ongoing commitment to improving urban mobility across Melbourne. We are excited to be delivering this project to Victorians.”
