Next edition features: Light Rail, Passenger Rail, Urban Infrastructure

The first 2018 edition of Rail Express magazine lands in just a few weeks time,  with three strong features to kick-off our brand new bi-monthly schedule:

Light Rail (special pull-out supplement)
Rail Express’s first special supplement in 2018 will focus on the light rail revolution taking place across Australia. Published ahead of the ARA’s Light Rail 2018 event in Sydney in March, and distributed at the event, the supplement will cover new and ongoing light rail developments in Sydney, Newcastle, the Gold Coast and Canberra, as well as the latest from Melbourne, the site of the largest urban tram network on the planet. The supplement will also address the latest technological trends and other research and development going on around light rail, and will discuss the potential of future light rail networks in places like Perth, Adelaide and Auckland.

Passenger Rail
Rail Express’s special feature on passenger rail will expand on the magazine’s regular coverage with in-depth features on ongoing projects like the Sydney Metro, the Melbourne Metro Project, the Forrestfield-Airport Link in Perth, and the City Rail Link in Auckland. New and ongoing passenger rollingstock contracts will also be reviewed, with a particular focus not only on the key manufacturers, but their suppliers as well. The feature will also include the latest offerings from the academic community, and analysis of recent state and federal politics, and what it will mean for the sector.

Urban Infrastructure
Coupling nicely with both the passenger rail feature, and the light rail supplement, the January-February feature on urban infrastructure will cover the interaction between rail and the urban environment. From new station construction in Sydney and Melbourne, to the major rearrangement of rail corridors south of Melbourne and in metropolitan Adelaide, the feature will consider the latest trends and challenges facing rail developments in Australia’s and New Zealand’s rapidly growing city centres.

In our second issue of Rail Express in 2017, we take a look at the cutting edge of this vast and important industry: Signalling & Communications. Around Australia, networks are getting busier, while the environments around them are moving faster, and becoming more complex every day. The job of keeping these networks safe, while also helping them be more efficient, makes this sector one of the most active in the field of research and development, and we take a look at some of the work on the table right now.

We also focus on the explosion of Civil Engineering & Construction taking place in just about every state and territory in Australia, and across the Tasman.

On page 30 we have a case study of some excellent work which has taken place in Sydney’s busy Town Hall station, aimed at improving the concourse and station areas for commuters, while also making maintenance work easier. On page 34 we take a look at the positive signs coming from the market, and on page 35, we profile one of the newest major pieces of work about to take place: Parramatta Light Rail.

Our supplement in this issue focuses on Freight Rail. With intermodal developments popping up around the region, and the wheels finally moving on Inland Rail, could rail soon take a serious bite out of the road industry’s market dominance on key freight routes? We also look at heavy haul rail in the supplement, including ongoing developments in Queensland and Western Australia.

Of course no Rail Express would be complete without our regular coverage of news from all around the region; we cover recent battles between the Queensland Government and the Commonwealth, lots of news out of Infrastructure Australia, and plenty more.

Please enjoy reading this issue. I look forward to engaging with the industry ahead of our next issue, the AusRAIL PLUS special edition, and then we’re on to the event.
