On the 7th October, SNP sponsored the Rail Track Association of Australia (RTAA) technical networking session at the Karstens Conference Centre in Brisbane. The industry event provided key stakeholders with an update on the progress of the Moreton Bay Rail Project (MBA), funded by the Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Australian and Queensland governments.
Set to transform one of Australia’s fastest growing urban areas, this new $1.1 billion rail project which includes a 12.6 kilometre dual track passenger line, six new rail stations and a stabling yard, could be a potential target for vandals and offenders alike.
Vandalism, theft and damage of equipment have been prominent and persistent issues within this sector. SNP recently joined the RTAA in March 2015 to share their expertise and knowledge, having successfully serviced various bodies within Australia’s rail and transport industry in excess of 10 years.
The RTAA is a not for profit organisation that promotes the interest of track infrastructure within the Australian rail industry. The group brings together important entities of the Australian rail track community including; rail company owners, engineers, construction companies, manufacturers, suppliers and academics.
