The Transport Access Program (TAP), a Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) initiative to improve customer experience, formed the Car Park Conversion Project (CPCP) to convert existing Sydney Trains and NSW Trains staff parking spaces into commuter parking spaces at numerous sites located throughout the Sydney Trains and NSW Trains network. The conversion of staff car parking spaces to additional commuter parking spaces is aimed at encouraging commuters to choose public transport.
Downer EDI Works (Downer) was awarded the CPCP works contract for 16 various sites located around the Sydney Region. The CPCP works included, but was not limited to; CCTV, lighting, power supply, drainage and civil works, such as line marking and refurbishment or replacement of pavements, footpaths, wheel stops, speed humps and crossings. The works undertaken have provided extra parking capacity around the network.
Downer engaged Nova Systems to support the CPCP safety assurance requirements for project completion and handover. Nova Systems worked diligently alongside Downer to gather and develop the necessary documents to enable handover and acceptance. Key relationships were formed with project personnel in order to collate the necessary information. Nova Systems supplied Downer with Safety Risk Summary Reports (SRSRs) and Project Specific Safety Risk Registers (PSSRRs) for each of the 16 sites. Furthermore, Downer requested Nova Systems assistance in the handover process due to its knowledge of the project requirements and familiarity with the TfNSW Configuration Control Board (CCB) procedures.
