Colin Vickery


Control Services Manager, National Train Control Centre
KiwiRail


9:50 AM Case Study: KiwiRail’s ETCS Journey and Enhancing Network Resilience through the New Auckland Control Centre

Although KiwiRail’s ETCS rollout is relatively new, the implementation of automation and new systems has sparked a new Train Control Centre in Auckland. While KiwiRail continues to balance and switch between manual and automatic route signalling at different times of the day, this will impact the overall design and future operations of the control centre. With a focus on enhancing resilience, Colin will discuss:
  • The duplication of control centres to provide contingency, resilience and increase capacity in controlling Auckland and Wellington separately
  • Insights into how KiwiRail assisted control room staff and train controllers in the transition into automatic route signalling
  • Control Centre Planning: Assessing the areas for upgrades to improve disaster recovery
