Train Order Working System Rationalisation Project
Order Working System Rationalisation Project
ARTC NSW Network Rule and
Procedure amends are coming. If you are directly affected,
please be ready to take part in training/briefing for the roll out
of the changes.
The Train Order Working System
Rationalisation project is consolidating legacy Train Order Working control
system interfaces at ARTC.
Two systems will be consolidated
in to a single upgraded TMACS
control system. This provides industry efficiencies with no
track side asset modifications, but the Network Rules and Network
Procedures are changing.
The roles impacted are:
Officer Levels 2, 3 and 4
level 1 and 2
The project applies to the
control of four rail corridors on the ARTC NSW Network:
– Gulgong – The Gap (Werris Creek)
– North Star
– Broken Hill via Parkes.
The improvements will be
implemented in two stages with training elements required for both.
upgrade of the current TMACS control system which controls
Stockinbingal to Broken Hill via Parkes. Included is the
integration of the ARTC eTAP track access system for
electronic TOAs, however verbal transmission of all other
methods of Work on Track will continue to be used.
of PTOS control system on the other corridors, transitioning
these to TMACS. Electronic authorities will also be
introduced providing authority transmission from Network
Control to rail traffic via the ICE radio.
The project team is working hard
to deliver the changes and will be in contact soon. If you have any
queries, please email Paul at Pfurniss2@artc.com.au
