Westmead to Granville Signalling

The Westmead to Granville Signalling Project involves works to upgrade the existing rail signalling system in the Westmead to Granville rail corridor. The project will increase the capacity of the T1 Western Line. The project is being delivered by the Novo Rail Alliance on behalf of Transport for NSW.


For the safety of staff and customers, the majority of work for the project will be completed outside of standard construction hours and during scheduled rail line shutdowns. Standard construction hours are 7am – 6pm Monday to Friday, and 8am – 1pm on Saturdays.
