Track & Signal Magazine published an article on IRSE Australasia in their January 2016 edition.
The article is available for download here:
The Institution of Railway Signal Engineers (IRSE) is an international learned society involved in the promotion of the science of railway signal engineering. The IRSE arranges a comprehensive annual program of conferences across Australia to meet the needs of the rail industry, in the field of signalling, telecommunications and train location systems.
The theme of the April 2016 Conference in Adelaide is Railways, Smart Technologies – The Way Forward. Through this theme the state committee hopes to promote excellence and information exchange in railway signalling & communication technologies and help to ensure that rail in Australia remains a safe, efficient and competitive mover of passengers and freight now and into the future.
Over the years the IRSE has contained delegate costs to a reasonable level by way of the generous industry sponsorship. To achieve a similar outcome, for the Adelaide conference in 2016, we are seeking industry support by purchasing a combination of advertisements, trade tables and sponsorship opportunities. All advertisements are included as part of an IRSE information pack along with an electronic copy of the technical papers and proceedings.
Auckland ETCS Level 1
In 2009, Invensys Rail – now Siemens, won the contract to re-signal the entire Auckland rail network in conjunction with its 25kV electrification. The project also included trackside and onboard fitment of ETCS Level 1.
The last of 57 new ETCS fitted electric trains was commissioned in September – marking the completion of the full scope of the project two years after the trackside signalling was commissioned. This presentation looks the new system including Westrace MkII, Axle Counters, modular signalling and ETCS level 1.
It will be an informal and personal perspective on the successful delivery of a city scale new signalling system along with ETCS Level 1.”
