Shorncliffe Line Works

ETCS will be rolled out in several stages starting with the Shorncliffe Line where work has already commenced and is expected to be operational in 2022. The project will involve ETCS equipment and technology being fitted to trains, on and alongside rail tracks, and within Queensland Rail’s Rail Management Centre followed by operational testing.

You may see an increase in construction personnel along the rail corridor and around stations.
