Metrol Control Centre Visit

Earlier this week, a few of our committee members had the opportunity to visit the Melbourne Metropolitan Train Control Centre (METROL), operated by Metro Trains Melbourne. Metrol is the heart of the train network, where all trains on the metro network are monitored and operated from. From managing the fleet to responding to emergencies, everything comes through here.

The YTP team learnt about what goes into running METROL on a 24/7 basis, including some of the measures that have been introduced over time to improve reliability and reduce delays.

Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) has been sponsoring YTP for many years and will continue supporting YTP as an industry partner throughout 2023. Thank you to the team at for this opportunity and making this possible.
