CERTIFER Italia won the Thales Independent Safety Assessment contract for the Parramatta Light Rail system in Australia.
The Parramatta Light Rail (PLR) project is a dual-track, light rail system aimed at meeting the growing public transportation needs in the Greater Parramatta region.
The Stage 1 of PLR project includes the construction and operation of a 12 km light rail service from Westmead to Carlingford via Parramatta CBD and Camellia.
Selected as the Independent Safety Assessor, CERTIFER Italia will assess the Light Rail Signalling system, supplied by THALES.
After Kaohsiung and Ankeng projects, this contract is a confirmation of a strong relationship between THALES and CERTIFER Italia for safety assessments in different regions of the world.
