Cross River Rail - GSN Phase 1 & 2

Configuration Management and Safety Assurance

Project Description

The Cross River Rail (CRR) Project is a new 10.2 kilometre rail line connecting Dutton Park to Bowen Hills via the CBD. It include six kilometres of twin tunnels running under the Brisbane River and CBD. CRR will deliver four new underground stations at Boggo Road, Woolloongabba, Albert Street and Roma Street. It will also upgrade eight above-ground stations at Salisbury, Rocklea, Moorooka, Yeerongpilly, Yeronga, Fairfield, Dutton Park and Exhibition.

Scope of Engagement

Axess, in collaboration with Ramboll, provided technical advisory support to Queensland Rail (QR) for the CRR Project. Axess and Ramboll provided client-side specialist support in configuration management and goal structuring notation (GSN). The development of a GSN for Operational Readiness Requirements included alignment to the program, organisation, suppliers, configuration states, disciplines, and Primavera P6 schedule.

The Operational Readiness GSN was developed to complement the reporting and tracking requirements for the Department of Transport and Main Roads (DTMR) and QR. The Operational Readiness GSN provided a progressive safety argument for the solution.

Key engagement outputs:

  • Operational Readiness Goal Structuring Notation

  • Automated GSN solutions/evidence status updates aligning with project task and deliverables completion
