    Professionals Program – Rail Systems

    November 14, 2019


    Signalling is a crucial component of any rail
    project. The safety of train movements and the control
    and management of trains depends on it. Railway signalling has evolved over the years,
    and is now a highly sought after skill in today’s market. We’re working hard to introduce high capacity
    signalling into Melbourne’s network and that is going to change the way trains operate. There are many opportunities across our major
    railway projects for people who are interested in signalling. This field is a specialist one, and our projects
    provide an excellent way to learn and develop skills that allow you at the same time to
    contribute to major projects.

    The expanding metro in Stockholm County, Sweden UPDATE 2017

    November 13, 2019


    Stockholm is one of the fastest growing
    metropolitan regions in Europe. The population is increasing by 35,000
    to 40,000 people each year. The equivalent of two full buses every day. That’s why both more housing and improved
    public transportation are needed. The metro currently carries
    more than one million travelers a day and expansion is underway to
    accommodate even more passengers- – as well as to allow the construction
    of 78,000 new homes. This infrastructure project
    is of such importance- -to the future of the Stockholm region- -that local and county councils have
    joined forces with national government- -in funding the large investment. In the Northwest, the blue line will be
    extended from Akalla via Barkarbystaden- -to Barkarby Station in Järfälla- -which will become a key intersection
    for passengers transferring- -between the metro, bus
    and commuter train services. The metro will be essential for
    the new Barkarbystaden urban area- -with its major new housing
    and commercial property development. The new yellow line will run
    from Odenplan through Hagastaden- -with both new housing and
    Karolinska University Hospital- -to Arenastaden, with its housing- -commercial and retail developments
    and events center. Odenplan will become a key intersection for
    changing between buses, the metro- -and commuter trains,
    easing the strain on T-centralen. The new Hagastaden district
    will also have a new metro station- -with one of its escalators leading directly
    into the main entrance of the hospital. From Odenplan the new yellow line
    will continue southbound- -on the same tracks
    as the existing green line. In the Southeast,
    the blue line will be extended- -from Kungsträdgården
    to Nacka centrum- -via a new station at Sofia
    in east Södermalm. An additional station will be built
    under the Hammarby canal- -with escalators exiting
    on both sides of the water. In Nacka, new developments will be built
    along the length of the metro line- -with Sickla forming an important
    intersection between the metro- -the Saltsjö line,
    the light rail line, and buses. In Järla, passengers will be able
    to transfer to the Saltsjö line- -before the line terminates
    at Nacka centrum- -with its housing, commercial,
    retail and community services. The blue line will also have
    a new southern branch- -via Sofia and Gullmarsplan to Sockenplan- -where it will connect with
    the current green line to Hagsätra. This will allow more frequent services
    into the city from the southern suburbs- -and a substantial amount of new housing- -as the new blue line relieves
    the strain on the metro network- -by providing an alternative to
    the overburdened section- -between Slussen and T-centralen. Because the new metro
    will be entirely underground- -it will not compete for space
    with other types of transportation. Fast, convenient
    and environmentally friendly- -it will open up space for the construction
    of new housing and workplaces. The new metro will bring
    the Stockholm region closer together- -and make life easier
    for everyone who lives here- -both now and in the future.

OFCR.: THE NEXT ITEM BEFORE YOU WOULD BE PPROPRIATE TO HEAR FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO HAVE REQUESTED TO ADDRESS THE BOARD ON ITEMS NOT HELD BY SUPERVISORS.>>SUP. KUEHL, CHAIR: ALL RIGHT. PLEASE CALL THEM FORWARD, AND THEIR ITEM NUMBERS.>>LORI GLASGOW, EXEC. OFCR.: DR. GENEVIEVE CLAVREUL, ITEM 3, 21, 22, 23, 25, 27, 61, AND CS-2. ERIC PREVEN, THE REMAINING ITEMS BEFORE YOUR BOARD. REVEREND DR. MELLO DESIRE, ITEM 42 AND 43. AND ALEXANDER BARBER, SD-1. PLEASE COME FORWARD. GOOD AFTERNOON, HONORABLE SUPERVISORS. MY NAME IS ALEX BARBER, AND I’M HERE BECAUSE I’M CONCERNED THAT THE COUNTY HAS NOT TAKEN ANY ACTION TO PRESERVE THE RAILROAD RIGHT OF WAY, FROM SANTA CLARITA TO VENTURA. IT’S THE OLD SANTA PAULA BRANCH. THIS IS IN SUPERVISOR BARGER’S DISTRICT. SOME YEARS AGO, THERE WAS A TENTATIVE PLAN TO RESTORE A METROLINK SERVICE ON THIS ROUTE AND VENTURA COUNTY ACTUALLY DID PURCHASE THEIR PORTION OF THE TRACK. BUT IT SEEMS LIKE LOS ANGELES COUNTY HAS BEEN KIND OF LAGGING BEHIND IN THIS MATTER. AND I THINK THAT ANYTHING PUT FORWARD BY THE SUPERVISORS THAT WOULD KIND OF FORMALIZE OR CRYSTALLIZE THIS PLAN WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL, BECAUSE CALTRANS RECENTLY RELEASED THEIR CALIFORNIA STATE RAIL PLAN, WHICH IS THE 2040 VISION FOR PASSENGER RAIL SERVICE IN CALIFORNIA. AND THE OLD SANTA PAULA BRANCH, WHICH IS THE ABANDONED RAILROAD IN BARGER’S DISTRICT I WAS REFERRING TO WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS, EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE INDEED TENTATIVE PLANS TO RESTORE METROLINK SERVICE ON THIS CORRIDOR. SO I WOULD JUST LIKE TO ENCOURAGE THE SUPERVISORS TO TAKE SOME ACTION IN FURTHERANCE OF THE PRESERVATION OF THE SANTA PAULA BRANCH. THAT’S THE ABANDONED RAILROAD THAT RUNS FROM SANTA CLARITA, PAST MAGIC MOUNTAIN, TO VENTURA. AND THEN, FINALLY, ONE OTHER THING. SUPERVISOR KUEHL, YOUR OFFICE HELPS FUND THE L.A. COUNTY G.O. BUS, WHICH RUNS THROUGH TOPANGA CANYON. AND I WOULD JUST LIKE TO ENCOURAGE THE COUNTY TO LOOK AT INTEGRATING THE OPEN DATA FROM THE PUBLIC WORKS BUSES INTO METRO’S DATA BECAUSE RIGHT NOW, IF YOU PULL OUT YOUR PHONE AND YOU LOOK AT THE MAPS APP, AND YOU WANT TO TAKE THE TOPANGA BUS THAT YOU PAY FOR, NOTE YOU WOULDN’T EVEN KNOW IT WAS THERE. AND THIS IS BECAUSE THAT DATA IS NOT COMBINED WITH METRO’S DATA AND IT’S ACTUALLY SEPARATE. AND PUBLIC WORKS HASN’T ACTUALLY PUBLISHED THEIR VERSION OF THAT DATA. SO I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD TO DO THAT. THANK YOU, SUPERVISORS.>>SUP. KUEHL, CHAIR: I’M GOING TO ASK MY CHIEF OF STAFF TO TALK TO YOU SO THAT YOU CAN TALK TO OUR TRANSPORTATION DEPUTY.>>ALEXANDER BARBER: WONDERFUL, THANK YOU.  >>SUP. KUEHL, CHAIR: AND HERE SHE IS.

    Shanghai Metro Overview

    November 12, 2019


    Welcome to Shanghai, China! Shanghai, population 23,019,148 (city proper), is the world’s most populated city. Public transportation in Shanghai includes buses, trolleybuses, trams, intercity rail, and a maglev line. Shanghai also has one of the world’s largest rapid transit systems, which is what this video will focus on. Typical operating speeds are 50-80 km/hour (30-50 mph) although some faster and longer distance lines will be opening soon that will operate at speeds of up to 160 km/hour (100 mph) Fares are between 45в and $1.50 (converted to U.S. currency) depending on the distance a passenger travels. The Shanghai Metro is one of the fastest growing metro systems in the world. Currently there are about 430 km (268 miles) of track in the system. This makes it the world’s longest metro only counting passenger routes. By 2020, it is expected that there will be 877 km (545 miles) of track (more than doubling in size). Currently there are 12 rapid transit lines in the city (two of which are technically light rail). By 2020, it is expected that there will be 21 lines. 23 new lines and line extensions are expected to be completed between 2012 and 2020. In 2011, the system transported over 2 billion passengers, the world’s fifth busiest. Amazingly, the Shanghai Metro only opened in 1995!

    Breaking Ground: Station box excavation at North Melbourne

    November 12, 2019


    So we’re here at Arden Street, the site of
    the new North Melbourne Station. We’re excavating the station box, it’s about
    20 metres deep and 250 metres long. We’re excavating using a 30-tonne telescopic
    excavator. They’re used to telescope down, and grab the
    material in a deep excavation. Once the excavation is completed, we’ll prepare
    the west box for the TBM assembly. The TBM will be delivered in small parts,
    then they’ll be lowered deep into the box using a 400-tonne crawler crane. Once the TBM is assembled and commissioned,
    we’ll then launch the machines and they’ll tunnel towards Kensington. So once we assemble the TBM and commission
    them, it’s quite a milestone for the project. It represents a different phase in operations,
    we’ll have a tunnel boring operation that will happen concurrently with the station
    excavation and the station construction. The bore tunnel excavation will go on for
    approximately 2 years. Authorised by Victorian Government, 1 Treasury
    Place, Melbourne.

    Riding the Metro in Budapest, Hungary : The Suburban Train System (HEV) of Budapest

    November 11, 2019


    I’m Dante Mena, the author of the Adventure
    Hunger travel guide, and here on behalf of Expert Village. And we will learn a little
    bit more about how to get around in the city using the public transportation system. Well,
    now we have just come off of the metro at the Blaha Lujza ter. And we want to go to
    the HEV. The HEV, as I mentioned before, is a connection that will take us to outer areas
    of Budapest. And we are going to go over to the ticket area. We’re going to meet first
    with Eric Guagenoffer. Director of tourism, here in Budapest, for the BKV transport system.
    Eric, I wanted to ask you one thing. Is it safe to travel on the metro system in Budapest.
    The Budapest metro system is one of the safest metro systems in the world, safer than New
    York. And now we’re coming back over now to the HEV’s station. You will notice that it
    says, “Penztar” at the top. The Penztar offices are at every metro entrance, and a person
    can buy a ticket for the local Budapest metro system. And they can also buy a connecting
    ticket for the HEV system; which is an extension of the BKV system, that takes you to the outer
    areas of Budapest. Hello, I would like a ticket for the HEV. How much is a ticket for the
    HEV? Four hundred-eighty. Ok. Thank you very much. Thank you. We are here at Batthyany ter. And
    behind me is the train for the HEV system. One of the trains is just now about to depart.
    The HEV system is an extension of the BKV system of the metro here in Budapest, and
    also of the bus system. Above me you can see that there are signs. These signs show the
    departure times, and they show the track number, on the right, and they also show the destination
    for the HEV trains. Have a good trip!
