As the signalling systems of developed metros in the region reach the age of replacement, rail operators face a key challenge in resignalling. From the design, coordination, migration of the system and the commissioning of the system, the high complexity of the systems and the need to minimise disruption to existing operations, make resignalling a great challenge. Furthermore, as the final phase of resignalling, the commission and testing can be the most difficult part as it is the moment of truth that determines if the months of efforts have been successful or if more work is needed.
At Asia Pacific Rail 2017, we gather the following signalling experts from Australia, Taiwan, India and Hong Kong to share their best practices in managing resignalling projects. Do not miss their panel discussion on 22 March 2017, 11am – 11.40am.
