Lidcombe to Granville Corridor Upgrade Program – Auburn Junction

Novo Rail Alliance
Transport for NSW
The Lidcombe to Granville Corridor Upgrade
Program (LGCUP) is a program of works to upgrade
rail infrastructure in the Lidcombe to Granville rail
corridor. The program will improve network reliability
and capacity and provide more efficient and reliable
access to and from the maintenance and stabling facilities.
The program currently consists of various projects, with the Auburn Junction Project
involving the removal of redundant track, upgrading of existing track, replacement of
overhead wiring infrastructure and upgrades to track drainage. Upgrading of signalling,
communications and control systems and new high voltage works to support the new
signalling system is also a key part of the project.
