With increasing urbanisation and soaring passenger numbers, city railways are undergoing a transition from mid density commuter railways to high capacity metro systems. It is important to understand and treat the railway as a holistic system and appreciate the role that in-cab signalling such as CBTC can play for utilising capacity reserves of the existing rail infrastructure, saving significant costs compared to building additional railway lines.
Attendants of this workshop will be taken through a case study for transport planning that helps them applying CBTC in a wider operational context by means of several instructive practical exercises.
The workshop will cover:

“Doc Frank” Heibel is a leading Australian expert for high performance signalling who holds key roles for CBTC planning and application in Perth and Sydney. He is Project Manager ATC for Perth Metro and Technical Advisor CBTC for Sydney North West Rail Link.
He specifically developed this workshop based on his experiences and teachings over the last 18 months, and the result is a transformational eye-opener for anyone serious about next generation signalling.
