Thank you to everyone who joined us at the PWI Technical Meeting, on 24 November 2022, for Daniel Armstrong, Gus Sullivan and Chris Whetters informative and entertaining presentation on Constructability: Planning Works in a Live Rail Corridor.
Growing urbanisation, demands on reliability of services, public scrutiny, increased automation and widespread digitalisation mean major brownfield rail projects are subject to significantly more critical interfaces and stakeholders than your average project. Well planned delivery beginning at the concept phase supports funding estimates, ensures project stakeholders are suitably informed, reduces customer impact and increases confidence in the ability to meet critical project milestones.
The presentation outlined the importance of multidisciplinary planning and constructability reviews in the early phases of brownfield rail projects, and introduced the Planning Confidence Sliding Scale and how to achieve greater than 80% confidence throughout project planning.
Thank you to the Permanent Way Institution (NSW) for hosting the technical meeting and providing the opportunity for Rail Planning Services to present.
