GSFT & SIT Trackside Installation Project

Safety Assurance Review

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is adopting European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 1 Limited Supervision by implementing Advance train control Migration System (AMS) which is a cost effective method and timely solution to protect and prevent trains from over speeding and passing signals at danger. The AMS implementation is an overlay to the existing signalling system.

The AMS Generic System Function Test (GSFT) and System Integration Test (SIT) Trackside Installation Project will include installation of new ETCS trackside equipment and conversion of existing ETCS equipment between Gosford (exclusive) and Wyong (inclusive) to enable test trains to be run over the section of track to carry out a GSFT and then a SIT.
