TfNSW will adopt a phased implementation to the Rail Industry Worker system from 1 October 2019. The transition will roll out on a site-by-site basis, with all sites completed by 13 December 2019. However, if you only work at or on the Sydney Metro Central Station Mainworks or the Sydney Siding and Junction Project you will not be required to transition to the new RIW system.
MTA will conduct training sessions for the TfNSW contractors to support this transition over zoom conferencing starting from the 1st week of October. These sessions will run over 5 weeks. To support all other participants, a suite of instructional tools and a communications toolkit has been developed to help the rail industry in NSW make the transition to the system.
