As of 2021, Gary is proud to have helped the Elizabeth Line in Crossrail (running from Heathrow to Paddington) roll out ETCS L2 signalling which integrates well into the central network using CBTC. Having to overcome challenges with legacy systems on shared lines with Great Western Railways and Heathrow Express services, Gary will take you through the key decisions that enabled a cohesive and united push towards making the role of ETCS a reality in the rail network:
The NRAP includes three workstreams designed to improved Australia’s productivity through the rail sector. In this session, Sandra will provide an update on how the NRAP efforts have developed and are helping address the critical challenges uniting the rail sector as it strives to make a high frequency, safe and interoperable train control environment and network a reality to meet future demands. She will cover the work done and lessons learned from the NRAP on 3 key areas:
Interactive Discussion Groups
As all operators across the freight and passenger rail networks work towards introducing varying levels of automation and moving towards a digitised and data-driven approach to train signalling and control, the ROC set up of today will no longer be effective. In this session, hear key industry leaders about how they are thinking, planning and implementing changes and what do they expect to see as the foundations for a successful ROC of the future.
At Cross River Rail, Simon Cook is heading up Qld Government’s efforts that act as the foundation for its intent to modernise its signalling systems and control environments. Through the staged rollout of ETCS which will be complimented by automation and digitisation, a vision for improved safety, productivity and capacity management across Qld Rail is being charted. In this session, Simon will cover experiences and lessons learned from:
ONRSR’s goal of ensuring safe railways for Australia while encouraging innovation across Australia’s rail networks has seen it develop a strong understanding of the steps necessary for a successful transition to digital systems like ETCS level 2 and CBTC that make use of automation. As the rail industry embarks on this journey, Sue will present to you her reflections on:
ARTC has been working hard to get its systems, procedures and program capability ready for a scaled roll out of the ATMS train control system across Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and the Inland rail corridor. In this session, hear how the organisation has been working with its stakeholders and customers to move to a standardised approach towards rail control across its freight network by:
