GSFT & SIT Trackside Installation Project
Safety Assurance Review
Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is adopting European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 1 Limited Supervision by implementing Advance train control Migration System (AMS) which is a cost effective method and timely solution to protect and prevent trains from over speeding and passing signals at danger. The AMS implementation is an overlay to the existing signalling system.
The AMS Generic System Function Test (GSFT) and System Integration Test (SIT) Trackside Installation Project will include installation of new ETCS trackside equipment and conversion of existing ETCS equipment between Gosford (exclusive) and Wyong (inclusive) to enable test trains to be run over the section of track to carry out a GSFT and then a SIT.
Assessment of the safety dependencies and impacts related to:
Interfaces (internal and external) between systems
Operation and maintenance of the systems including human factors review
Technical review of the design of the AMS system in accordance with the AMS Principles and Guideline, codes and standards
Audit of the design verification for GSFT and SIT design data
Assessment and audit of change controls
Assessment of audit of GSFT and SIT installations in accordance with standard design arrangements and applied competence control
Evaluation of the Signalling Functional Specification to comply with standards and safety requirements
Human Factor assessment on installation and maintenance activities
