Conference Day Two: Wednesday, 26th June 2019

9:00 am - 9:30 am Conference Registration and Welcome Coffee

9:30 am - 9:40 am Opening Remarks

9:40 am - 10:20 am Achieving Successful Project Delivery through the Integration of Effective Risk Controls

With considerable time and money being invested into large scale transport projects, it is vital they are designed and built to last. These mega projects can achieve long lasting positive impacts on people and in turn serve to enhance the productivity of the greater economy. However, delivering such projects comes with considerable risk including going over budget, project delays or not delivering promised benefits to justify the heavy costs and disruptions during construction. This session examines the formulas behind the calculations used to ensure the functionality and effective delivery of projects.

  • What are the formulas calculating risk and how is it applied when undertaking large scale project
  • Analysing factors that are taken into consideration when calculating project risk
  • Examining the effectiveness of formulas when calculating risk in planning and construction

11:30 am - 12:10 pm Exploring the Integration of Multi Modal Transport in Current and Future Stations & Terminals

Metro systems are often discussed in terms of movement and capacity and are frequently referred to as mass transit systems. This common view overlooks the profound impact that public transport systems can have on the culture of a city, often impacting how we define ourselves, our communities and the environments we live in.

Sydney’s public transport system is undergoing a major transformation that will undoubtedly reshape the city, and this transformation presents an opportunity to deliver meaningful social and cultural outcomes.
Based on Maynard’s recent project experience in Europe, Asia and Australia, we will share insight into how culture has been considered as an integral component in the design of transport systems

2:30 pm - 3:10 pm How an Innovative Delivery Model can Reduce Risk and Lead to Better Outcomes in a Complex Brownfield Technology Project

Currently the largest transport infrastructure project under construction in Australia, the Sydney Metro Northwest project will be the first fully-automated metro rail system in Australia, delivering eight new railway stations and 4000 commuter car parking spaces. Set to open in the second quarter of 2019, there is no better time to hear about its delivery.

  • Identifying used procedures that contributed to the success of delivery
  • Analysing changes from the original design and challenges faced during planning, construction and operational delivery
  • Exploring lessons learnt from the project and how they will affect the plans and designs for future projects
