Interfleet Australia will be exhibiting at the Australian Railway Conference (AusRAIL PLUS). The event is being held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, from Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th November 2015. Come see us at Stand 153.
Diane Riley, Interfleet State Manager for Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, comments: “The Economist magazine recently voted Melbourne the world’s most liveable city, based on assessment of 30 factors spread across five headline areas.
“It came as no surprise to those in the transport industry that infrastructure was one of those five indicators. So a city which boasts the largest tram network, real aspirations for a multimodal integrated transport network - and committed significant investment in that network over the coming decades - was inevitably going to be considered for this somewhat lofty title.”
Diane continues: “It is therefore fitting that the AusRAIL will be held in Melbourne this year, under the banner ‘Doing it Smarter. People, Power, Performance’. The theme resonates particularly well with the lifecycle of major rail projects occurring in Melbourne and wider Australia.
“The key message is that investment is great, but smart investment is better to support communities and economic development. So let’s take a step back, think before we act and focus on - amongst other things - optimising our use of assets, reliability and sustainability. Through it all, it’s important to remember that the most powerful asset is the cumulative knowledge of the people who make up the transport industry.”
Interfleet Australia’s Head of Control Centre & Traffic Management Systems, James Claxton, will be presenting ‘The Integration of Multiple Signalling Systems’ at AusRAIL PLUS on Wednesday 25th November. For more information about the show, visit www.ausrail.com.
