Operational considerations need to be included at every stage of a rail project's development

A process of checks and balances is needed to ensure the project will provide maximum efficiency for the operators and a safe, functional and effective experience for rail users.

A successfully implemented operations plan will also enable timely identification of any required design changes.

  • Design new railway lines or systems
  • Review and recommend solutions to operational issues
  • Develop operations, maintenance, safety and training plans
  • Develop design integration for train operations systems
  • Develop the functional design for stations, train control centres and depots
  • Develop layouts for new train stabling facilities and maintenance depots
  • Review operations on existing corridors and recommend infrastructure options that will improve overall reliability of passenger train services
