The project involves the delivery of the European Train Control System (ETCS) on the Queensland rail network across the inner city rail lines between Northgate and Milton stations.

The ETCS is an automatic train protection system allowing more trains in a given time period to use a particular part of the network. The ETCS will be ‘Level 2’ which means the current coloured traffic lights on the side of the track will no longer be required, with a computer in the driver's cab providing the authority to go, while taking other trains on the railway into account, maximising speed and braking efficiency.

Works will also include Automatic Train Protection, replacement of line-side signals with in-cab displays, a new digital wireless communication network and a new traffic management system with automated route setting.

Expressions of Interest for the ETCS were advertised in June 2016.
