Just because we won't be having a webinar next week (due to AusRail) it doesn't mean you can't watch a RISSB webinar.
Since 8 April, we've offered a new webinar presenter and topic almost every week and recorded each webinar session. Our webinars have been presented by a huge range of international and local speakers including Huw Gibson (RSSB, UK), Professor Drew Dawson (CQU) and Amir Levintal (Cylus) and they're all currently available to industry free of charge.
If you'd like to sit back and watch a recording at your leisure, simply go to https://www.rissb.com.au/home/webinars/find the name of the presenter you want to see and click on the 'Watch' button near the title of their presentation.
AS 7659 Point locking and point detection – The Development Group met this week to discuss a raft of recommendations, including some from the Train Control Systems Standing Committee. The latest draft was accepted, with some further work to be done concerning independent detection of crossovers. It is hoped to have the draft finalised within the next few weeks, at which time it will be available for public comment.
Each week we'll showcase a publication in our 2020 / 2021 work plan that we will be progressing.
Turnouts and Special Trackworks
This Standard developed in 2013, provides the Australian rail industry with a set of mandatory requirements for the general management, design, supply, installation, maintenance, disposal and decommissioning of turnouts and other special trackwork, in order to promote a consistent treatment. This document will undergo a formal review to ensure currency.
