The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to review an existing Standard, AS 7635 Track Geometry, that provides detailed guidance for the design, construction, commissioning, monitoring, maintenance, and modification of rail tracks in Australia.

This publication will cover areas such as key project datasets including (but not limited to):

  • Track design

  • Documentation.

How to contribute

Stakeholders and interested parties are invited to submit nominations for subject matter experts to join this Development Group to contribute to the overall depth and quality of the product.

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be meetings held every four to six weeks (between August 2021 and May 2022).  These will be planned as teleconferences, however this may change depending on lifting of travel restrictions.
