Railways are faced with significant passenger and freight growth together with ever increasing operational demands such as reliable service, reduction in engineering access and real-time customer information.
However, the railways are still faced with unexpected failures from not understanding the true health of critical systems within the rail network. All decisions on critical infrastructure must be evidence-based and transparent. As our railways are pushed heavily on a value for money approach, it is time to realise that we need to manage our infrastructure in a smarter way by spending the right amount of resources on the right assets at the right time to meet the performance level.
Achieving a reliable and resilient rail network means the railway owners / operators can predict the future risk, prevent an unreliable service and can recover from any disruptions quickly and consistently.
So, how can we achieve reliable and resilient railways whilst our infrastructures are not getting any younger?
Young Ji Kim, Strategic Director from Jacobs, will explore some fundamental elements of achieving reliability and resilience in the context of railway infrastructure. She will share the benefits and some examples of achievements along with best practice.
