Safety Supervision Consultant for Jerusalem LRT
Client: JTMT Jerusalem Transportation Master Team
Light Rail trains operating in streets are new for Israel. The state in its role as the regulator has developed the railway law and its by-laws as well as the relevant administration for LRT systems in line with the progress of the first LRT line.
The supervision of operational safety of the Jerusalem LRT system has been assigned to JTMT.
Rail&Bus Consultants GmbH developed monitoring and supervision procedures for JTMT.
Rail&Bus is training a local engineer to be the safety supervision agent. The training consists of training lessons on LRT technology, introduction into Railway RAMS incl. Common Safety Methods and on training on the job. During the first two-year-period Rail&Bus takes full responsibility for the safety supervision.
Safety and Security are a major and complex issue for the Public Transport System in Israel and especially in Jerusalem. Our experts will continue supporting JTMT in all questions of safe LRT operations in the next years.
