Signal failures on the metropolitan rail network: RailCorp: Auditor-General's report: performance audit

Sydney's rail network is large and complex. The signalling system has many parts, including around 3,800 trackside signals, 2,900 train stops, 6,800 track circuits and 2,200 sets of points. The system employs a range of technologies, some quite old. This audit examines whether RailCorp is effectively managing the risk of signal failures. It focuses on whether RailCorp is keeping the number and duration of signal failures low enough to support its on-time running target.
