Sepura subsidiary Teltronic has been chosen by Alstom to provide radio equipment and network design for Sydney Light Rail’s new CBD (Central Business District) and South East Light Rail line.

The 12km line will form an essential part of the city’s public transportation network, linking 19 passenger stations and helping to significantly reduce traffic congestion in the city.

The system will provide communications between all staff on the line – including drivers, maintenance and security staff, inspectors and the control centre – and will be integrated with an intelligent transport system application, responsible for fleet management, traffic regulation, passenger information management and train-to-ground information exchange.

Cambridge UK-based Sepura is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of digital radio products, systems and applications developed specifically for business and mission critical communications.

“This win strengthens our relationship with Alstom, already proven in other projects," said Felipe Sanjuan Pasamar, Teltronic’s business development director.

“This project will make an important contribution to the smooth running of Sydney Light Rail’s new line, both during its construction and in its daily operation.”
