As one of the busiest stations within Sydney and with aims to meet the planned 2018 rail schedule, Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) is upgrading Wynyard Station. The Wynyard Station Upgrade (WSU) is a key infrastructure project being delivered by the NSW Government for Sydney’s financial district. The upgrade includes new fixtures and finishes, widening of the concourse, additional amenities, ticket barriers and upgrade of services. Due to the significant location of Wynyard Station, with numerous key project interfaces (Wynyard Walk Project, the upcoming CBD South East Light Rail Project and the One Carrington Street Development), and significant public interface, Novo Rail Alliance, a partnership between Laing O Rourke, Aurecon, TfNSW and RCR O’Donnell Griffin, was awarded the WSU works.
Novo Rail Alliance engaged Nova Systems for systems and safety Assurance support for the completion of Phase 1 works and start-up of Phase 2 works. Nova Systems is providing Novo Rail Alliance with safety assurance support by engaging stakeholders in hazard identification workshops, working closely with project personnel in managing project specific safety risks and delivering the supporting safety assurance documents as per the delivery schedule.
The nature of the WSU works also involves the introduction of new equipment that has not been used on the Sydney Trains network before, thus requiring a RAMs assessment, which Nova Systems is currently providing. Nova Systems is also supporting Novo Rail Alliance in managing the system requirements traceability to ensure the WSU is satisfying the customer requirements.
