Revealed: The reason for landslip which left Scunthorpe without trains for five months

A REPORT in to a landslip which cancelled all train services between Scunthorpe and Doncaster for five months found the soil tip which caused it had not been examined since 2009.

The Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) report said even if Network Rail had been aware of the landslip, it would not have taken any action because it would have expected the safety of the tip to be managed by others.

The report says that in 2009 when the last examination of the tip took place, it was considerably smaller and had not been examined since.

It states: "Network Rail had not considered whether the enlarged tip posed a risk to railway safety before the landslip occurred because, while the tip was being enlarged after 2009, there had been no routine examination or other process to trigger such consideration."

The landslip came to light on February 9 last year when a driver noticed a track defect when passing Hatfield Colliery on a section of railway between Doncaster and Scunthorpe.

Network Rail staff attended the site and implemented progressively lower speed restrictions as ongoing track movements became apparent. Three of the lines were closed to traffic on February 11 and the fourth line was closed on February 12.

There was no damage to trains and no injuries as a result of the ground movements, however, major works were required to reinstate the railway infrastructure. It was reopened on July 8.

The report adds: "Aerial photographs taken by Network Rail show that the track deformation was a consequence of a large landslip caused by a spoil tip located outside the railway boundary and within Hatfield Colliery.

"The precise reasons why the landslip occurred remain to be determined and, in addition to the ground loading imposed by the spoil tip, may involve factors such as unexpected weakness in the natural ground. RAIB has not investigated these reasons because this was not expected to lead to additional RAIB safety recommendations.

"The last examination of this earthwork took place in November 2009 and resulted in the earthwork being categorised as serviceable, so requiring no further specialist consideration until the next routine examination due after an interval of 10 years."

The report was carried out by the RAIB looking into Network Rail infrastructure between June 2012 and February 2013.

Having looked at five specific landslips during this period – including Hatfield – it made a number of recommendations to the company.

A Network Rail spokesman said: "We will consider carefully the points raised in the RAIB report and take action as appropriate."

Howrah-bound Shaktipunj Express passengers robbed

DALTONGANJ: A group of over 20 men, armed with lathis, robbed passengers in the general compartment of Howrah-bound Shaktipunj Express on Tuesday and assaulted three of them when they tried to stop them.

According to railway traffic inspector A K Sinha, the train stopped around 2.30am after a "passenger", who was later found out to be an accomplice of the robbers, pulled the chain between Koomandi and Hehegara railway stations on Coal India Chord (CIC) line.

"Around 24 men got into the train immediately after it stopped and started threatening passengers," he said, adding that the robbers took away Rs 70,000 in cash. This is the fourth robbery on train passing through Dhanbad division in a span of five months.

The men beat up three passengers when they tried to stop them. When the train reached Daltonganj railway station, irate passengers demonstrated and did not let it leave the station for 40 minutes.

Railway police personnel were present in the train when the incident happened.

Tanzania: Fast Central Corridor Pace Urged

PRESIDENT Jakaya Kikwete has called on partner states to promote the participation of the private sector in investing in infrastructure projects in the Central Development Corridor.

He said in Dar es Salaam that government financing alone, for example, was not enough for the ambitious road and railway infrastructure projects in the corridor. "It's time we encouraged further private sector participation.

It remains an alternative and viable option to minimise the public financing gap in infrastructure development," he told the World Economic Forum Alignment Meeting on Development of the Central Corridor.

Tanzania plans to capitalise on a long coastline and upgrade existing railways and roads to serve growing economies in the land-locked heart of Africa from Uganda on its north border to Malawi in the south.

As East Africa's second largest economy, the country has a long-term plan to upgrade the Central Railway Line to standard gauge in a project running from Dar es Salaam to Isaka.

"In partnership with Rwanda and Burundi, the grand plan seeks to extend the line from Isaka to Kigali and onwards to Keza-Musongati in Burundi in a project estimated to cost a minimum of 4.13 billion US dollars," President Kikwete said.

Tanzania and Burundi have also a bilateral arrangement to construct a 200-kilometre standard gauge railway line between Uvinza in Tanzania and Musongati in Burundi, estimated to cost 550 million US dollars.

Tanzania also has short-term plan to rehabilitate the railway line by reinforcing its formation, strengthening its bridges, removing lighter, old, worn-out rails, fasteners, sleepers and installing new heavier rails, sleepers and ballast.

According to Mr Kikwete, almost 600 kilometres have been done so far. "Government financing alone may not easily raise all the money required. We do not have the money nor can we easily get someone to lend us so much money.

We have tried this option over the years without much success," he pointed out.

The Central Corridor is located at the strategic geographical position, which makes it a natural choice as a major trade route for countries of the Eastern and Central African regions.

Transit demand from these countries is forecasted to increase from 2.7 million to 9.8 million tons by 2030, President Kikwete said. With the recent discovery of enormous deposits of nickel in Burundi, the corridor is about to transport more volumes of heavy minerals within the coming two to three years.

"Our neighbour, Burundi, may in the coming two or three years start exporting between 1.5 million tons and 3 million tons of nickel concentrates a year," he noted. Tanzania also expects two nickel mines in Kabanga and Dutwa in Kagera Region to be operational in the same time span, the president said.

"It is likely that nickel processing would require importation of huge volumes of sulphur per annum. All these volumes are expected to pass through the Central Corridor," he added.

Transport in the central corridor suffers from inefficiency, which contributes to prohibitively high transport costs, hence impeding the region's ambition to realise its overall vision for socio-economic development.

Tanzania has also carried out projects to upgrade operations at the Dar es Salaam port, which include dredging of the entrance channel to the port, construction of Berths 13 and 14 and strengthening and deepening of Berths 1-7 and development of the Roll on - Roll off (RO-RO) Berth at the port.

The government also has signed a framework deal with China Merchants Holdings (International) to construct a new port at Bagamoyo, 75 kilometres north of Dar es Salaam, in a project expected to involve more than 10 billion US dollars.

The construction of the port will also involve building infrastructure for a special economic zone and railway network.

Portal Railsaver to Improve Energy Efficiency on Indian Railways Inaugurated

New Delhi: In a move to further improve energy efficiency on Indian Railways, a web based Electrical Energy Management System, RAILSAVER, developed by Centre of Railway Informatics System (CRIS), an autonomous organization under the Ministry of Railways, was inaugurated by Shri Kul Bhushan, Member Electrical, Railway Board here today. He said that this portal will be very useful for Indian Railways in reducing carbon foot print which is very important for addressing the challenges of global warming and sustainability of our environment. He also stated that Indian Railways is determined to reduce the cost of electricity by adopting various means like procuring power through trading, bilateral arrangements etc. 

Shri Bhushan further stated that the portal RAILSAVER will provide a perfect IT based platform for energy consumption data which will pave the way for systematic collection, assimilation, interpretation and analysis of data in evolving future strategies for conceiving, implementing and further intensifying energy conservation efforts on Indian Railways. He also sought support of UNDP in linking of RAILSAVER web-site with other Railroad systems so that the best practices on energy efficiency, benchmarks for specific energy consumption etc. can be shared and adopted by amongst each other. 

The portal is a part of the project for “Improving Energy Efficiency in Indian Railway System” being executed by Indian Railways under programmatic framework of UNDP through Global Environmental Facility (GEF) funding of US $ 5.2 million. The project envisages defining framework for energy conservation initiatives on Indian Railway system by introduction of energy efficient technologies and adoption of various measures in traction and non-traction sub-sectors. 

Slew of measures like adoption of energy efficient luminaries and equipment, deployment of new generation 3 phase energy efficient electric locomotives and electrical multiple units etc. have resulted into substantial savings in electricity consumption in the past. This portal will further facilitate in saving energy upto 15% by the year 2020 through improved energy efficiency measures as laid down in Railway’s vision document. The project after implementation will be immensely helpful in creating awareness of energy efficiency measures, understanding importance of such measures, availability of knowledge bank on these measures, availability of training modules amongst many others. 

Ms. Suhas Kumar, MD/CRIS, Ms. Alexandra Solovieva, Dy. Country Head UNDP and Officers from Railway Board, UNDP, Northern Railway and CRIS also present on the occasion among others.

Old Prague freight railway station to become cultural centre

It is still unclear who will fund the renovation of the project. (chodec.xf.cz)

Prague, April 15 (CTK) - The functionalist technical building of the Prague-Zizkov freight railway station may be turned into the seat of a cultural institution, Culture Minister Daniel Herman (Christian Democrats, KDU-CSL) said Tuesday, during the signing of a document related to the planned reconstruction.

Herman Tuesday signed a memorandum on cooperation between the Culture Ministry, the state-run Ceske drahy railway operator and the developer.

He said the unused railway station building, which is part of the country's cultural heritage, would turn into a cultural centre. It might house the National Film Archive or exhibition halls of the Museum of Decorative Arts or the National Technical Museum, Herman added.

The future of the freight railway station, situated close to the city's centre, has been a topic of heated discussions for several years. However, it has still remained unclear who will cover the enormous costs of the reconstruction.

Prague may be inspired by the city of Ostrava, centre of the region of Moravia-Silesia, that succeeded in reviving the old industrial areas in Ostrava-Vitkovice.

The Zizkov station development company, formed by Ceske drahy and the Sekyra Group firm, originally planned a huge construction project, including the demolition of the unused railway station, but this caused strong protests from both the public and experts.

The Culture Ministry finally decided that the old station building must be maintained. It is likely to become the centre of a new neighbourhood.

"Our effort is to integrate the heritage into the commercial part of the project," Ludek Sekyra, owner of Sekyra Group, told CTK.

Sekyra was the biggest sponsor of the Christian Democrats in 2013. He gave three million crowns to the party that succeeded in returning to parliament last autumn.

Ceske drahy head Daniel Kurucz said he would like the Culture Ministry or some of its institutions to be the owner of the railway station building.

New railway tour route to link China, six countries

A railway tour route that connects China with six countries in Asia and Europe will open in July, local media reported Monday.

The tour, which costs 32,000 yuan ($5,148) per person, will take tourists to historical and natural scenic spots in Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic, according to a report in the Metro Express.

The railway tour is the first that a Chinese travel agency has opened abroad, said Zhou Hongsheng, deputy manager of Shanghai Railway International Travel (Group) Co Ltd, which created the tour.

The first tour will begin on July 8. Tourists will first fly from Shanghai to Turkey in the afternoon and spend a night in a hotel.

They will start their train journey the next day. The train can accommodate 97 tourists, with two passengers sharing one private room.

The tourists will spend four nights on the train to ensure enough time for sightseeing in the daytime. They will spend the rest of their nights in four-star hotels, the report said.

The tour will take the tourists to the capitals of the six countries and treat them to local cuisine.

For instance, tourists will visit a mosque and a royal palace in Istanbul, the capital of Turkey. They will also enjoy the natural scenery of Mount Vitosha in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, Zhou told the Global Times.

Napthine pledges railway link to Melbourne airport in just time for election

Fokker Friendship - Melbourne Airport from DJ806 MEL-SYD
Election years are never complete without big infrastructure promises, and Victoria’s Denis Napthine government has opened the state’s auction for votes with a bid to build a sorely needed rail link from Melbourne to Tullamarine Airport.

The proposed link will bridge a major public transport gap between Melbourne’s city and suburbs and the relatively distant airport that is now only served by the increasingly congested Tullamarine Freeway.

The rail line will bring Melbourne into line with Sydney and Brisbane where air passengers can use dedicated rail lines to bypass freeway traffic and spare the expense of taxis.

Sydney has had a privately-run underground railway airport link operating since May 2000 that was completed just in time for the city’s Olympic games, although the line remains poorly patronised because of steep ticket prices that can make it cheaper to get a cab or hire car from the CBD if there are multiple passengers traveling.

Perth and Canberra are similarly exploring the addition of rail links to cut through congestion car drop-off and pick-up concourses to optimise capacity utilisation.

The fact that the Melbourne’s Tullamarine Freeway could become even more congested is an looming issue that the Napthine government is keen to fix to address in light of expectations that the 30 million passengers the airport now caters for every year will double by the mid-2030s – a strain that existing infrastructure will not be able to cope with.

When Melbourne’s airport rail line project is completed, it will provide a new electrified service that will run on dedicated tracks from Melbourne Airport to Albion where it will join the existing suburban rail network and then run through to the main hub of Southern Cross Station.

The frequency of the service has been slated for a train every 10 minutes from Southern Cross Station during peak hours, with the total journey to the airport expected to take approximately 25 minutes – a time saving of roughly a third to a half over existing travel times.

Although the Napthine government is yet to reveal official costings for the project, it has committed to outlining the details of the rail link in the forthcoming 2014-15 State Budget on 6th May.

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine made the announcement in a speech to the Liberal Party State Council, saying the “landmark project” was part of the Coalition government’s “record breaking” infrastructure agenda.

Dr Napthine said the government is undertaking the detailed design, planning and consultation work on this “important project”.

He said this will be a “critical component” in the government’s broader transport plan that will deliver more services to carry “more people, more often” across metropolitan and regional networks.

“The new link will consist of a combination of at-grade and viaduct rail lines that will run from Albion, through the Jacana freight corridor and airport land terminating at a new elevated station at Melbourne Airport. A new rail flyover will be constructed at Albion to ensure smooth access to the existing rail network,” Dr Napthine said.

The rail industry is cheering on the project as a way of cutting Melbourne’s increasing congestion issues and “drastically” improving the traffic flow to and from the CBD.

Australasian Railway Association (ARA) chief executive Bryan Nye said the Victorian government’s investment in public transport was a “good use” of public money.

“It is reassuring to see the Napthine government take ownership of its public transport projects, in particular rail, even in these tough economic times,” Mr Nye said.

He said without substantial investment in Australia’s rail networks that provide links to airports, Melbourne’s highways will continue to be “clogged” with trucks and its cities will be heading further towards gridlock, frustration and “excessive urban sprawl”.

“Whilst rail is undoubtedly the most efficient transporter of both people and goods over long distances,” he said, “increasingly it is becoming more competitive with road transport over shorter distances.”

As a solution, Mr Nye endorses further integration with ports, airports and intermodal terminals, which he said “can only have positive outcomes”.
