Richmond line duplication
The duplication of the Richmond track is nearing completion and the Loco Division has been involved in ensuring that driver needs are addressed around issues of signal sighting, safety concerns, amenities and the Draft Risk Based Training Needs Analysis. The final RBTNA will determine the training needs for drivers on the new infrastructure.
The new track is to be commissioned in July and will be in use from this time for emergency purposes only – no trains will be timetabled on it. New platforms and amenities at Schofields station and other infrastructure associated with the duplication will be commissioned in October 2011 and will hopefully be open for full operational use at that time.
