Call for Development Group Members to Draft a New Light Rail Standard

The Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) is seeking nominations from people to join a Development Group to progress a new Australian Standard ® for light rail.

This Standard will provide requirements and recommendations for the use of signals used in the operation of light rail systems. This will include:

  • Types of signals
  • Standard indications
  • Location and placement
  • Interface with road traffic signals.

The Standard will align with the existing AS 1742 series and address specific areas that are not covered from a light rail perspective.

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 Standard.

Development Group membership is voluntary and requires the support of your organisation to attend and contribute. There will be 4 meetings over the development period – 2 face-to-face (expected in August and October 2020 depending on travel restrictions) and 4 teleconferences between July and November 2020.

Further information on the responsibilities of a Development Group member can be obtained from the RISSB website.

All nominations and enquiries are to be submitted to cfitzhardinge@rissb.com.au

As part of your nomination, can you please provide a brief detailing your contact details, your interest in this development (materially affected party, subject matter expert, etc.), and any other information which might support your participation.

Your information will assist us in ensuring a balanced representation from all major interest categories in the development of this document.

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday, 17 June 2020.
