Rail Projects Victoria has appointed Arup as its Rail Operational Planning Adviser as the State delivers its record program of rail investment.
With Victoria’s population growing faster than other Australian states and territories – reaching more than 6.5 million last year – the Government’s ambition is an expanded rail network that is operationally integrated, can meet future demand and offers passengers a reliable and quality service.
Arup’s work for Rail Projects Victoria (RPV) encompasses many of the major rail projects proposed for both the capital city Melbourne, and regional Victoria. These include the high-profile Melbourne Airport Rail, faster rail services for the growing city of Geelong and the Western Rail Plan that seeks to progressively improve rail connectivity to the booming western suburbs.
As Rail Operations Planning Adviser, Arup will help develop a network-wide rail strategy and supporting operating plans for defined rail corridors. This will ensure coordinated delivery of the planned future benefits from each project through effective operating strategies, while also ensuring their integration and management of interfaces and timings.
