Signal Maintenance

Signal maintenance technicians work to avoid the failure of signalling and communication equipment on the rail network.

Technicians carry out preventative and routine maintenance on signalling or communications systems used to control the movement of trains and if a fault occurs, they are required to trace, diagnose and repair the fault with the aid of computers and other diagnostic tools.

At times the technician may replace faulty parts and on occasion take them to a workshop for repair. Signal maintenance technicians are required to work at heights as well as along side the railway track which means adherence to safety at all times is very important.

VLine

VLine

As the state’s regional public transport provider, we run more than 1400 train services and 600 coach services every week, helping a potential 1.3 million regional Victorian customers get from place to place.

We also offer services for Melburnians, as well as interstate and overseas visitors, who want to visit or work in the country. So our customers get to experience the best of country and city life.

Friendly, caring and professional service is important, which is why we employ more than 1300 people across the state.

Many provide service to the travelling public, day in, day out at our stations or on board our trains. Others work around the clock operating and maintaining vital track and signalling for both freight and passenger trains.

V/Line acts as an important and vital member of the Victorian community and contributor to its economy.

We are committed to our role in the community now and in the future, and we value being a responsible, sustainable community leader and contributor.

To deliver on these commitments we are fully owned by the State, responsible to the Minister for Public Transport and funded on a not-for-profit basis.
