In a first, Western Railway local installed with CCTV

Speaking to dna, Shailendra Kumar, divisional railway manager, WR, said that primarily the CCTV system would be a 'recording device'. "It is going to help us with evidence in case some untoward incident happens.

The Western Railway on Friday evening commissioned the first local train with a CCTV camera system fitted in one of its ladies' coaches. Speaking to dna, Shailendra Kumar, divisional railway manager, WR, said that primarily the CCTV system would be a 'recording device'. "It is going to help us with evidence in case some untoward incident happens. Live monitoring will also be done but we believe the very presence of cameras in the ladies' coaches will be a deterrent for mischief-makers," said Kumar.

Railway officials said that issues like who will be monitoring the systems when cameras will be installed on more trains will come up for discussion in some time. Currently, the monitors of the CCTV systems are with the rake maintenance department of Mumbai Central carshed. But since security falls within the jurisdiction of the Railway Protection Force (RPF), handing over of the monitoring of these systems to the uniformed force is just a matter of time.

UIC and Japan Railways organizes “9th World Congress on High Speed Rail” between 7-10 July 2015 at Tokyo

The 9th World Congress on High Speed Rail “UIC HIGHSPEED 2015″ will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all professionals worldwide to review the past half century and to envision the next half century

Paris: UIC alongwith East Japan Railway Company is co-organising 9th World Congress on High Speed Rail “UIC HIGHSPEED 2015”. It is the largest international congress and exhibition devoted to High Speed Rail in the world, which has been initiated by UIC and gathered 1,000 to 2,000 professionals once every few years since 1992, will finally come back to the birth place of High Speed Rail, Japan.

The Congress is being coordinated by East Japan Railway Company in collaboration with all parties involved in high speed rail in Japan, and more generally with all UIC member railways. This is the world’s most important meeting for high-speed rail, and is expected to attract more than 1,000 attendees from across the globe to exchange views on the development and achievements of high-speed rail worldwide. The World Congress will feature international rail experts on transportation policy and technology. It will bring the public and private sectors together to provide insight and identify best practices for implementing high-speed rail projects at every stage – from planning, financing, and construction, to operations and management. Also, the Congress will feature an exhibit showcasing high-speed rail products and services.

This edition of UIC HIGHSPEED Congress 2015 in Tokyo will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all High Speed Rail professionals including decision makers, authorities, railway industry, railway undertakings, infrastructure managers, research institutes, universities and others to review the past half century and to envision the next half century of high speed train operations worldwide.
Congress overview and 50-50 concept

The 9th UIC HIGHSPEED World Congress in Tokyo will coincide with the 50th anniversary of high speed train operations worldwide. Indeed, since 1964, many different countries and regions worldwide have opened and developed their own high speed system. 15 billion passengers have travelled at global level – twice the world’s population – for the past half century. Nowadays there are nearly 23,000 km of dedicated high speed lines operating in the world. In 20 years, this figure will double.

The Congress will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all professionals worldwide to review the past half century and to envision the next half century. Therefore, unlike past congresses, the 9th UIC HIGHSPEED Congress will embrace the “50-50 concept” which will create a temporal dynamism throughout the congress. That is, the first half of the congress will focus on challenges already raised and the lessons drawn from experience over the past 50 years, and the last half will focus on the new challenges to face and the opportunities to take over the next 50 years.

In addition to the above-mentioned temporal “50-50 concept”, the congress will embrace the concept of the topics to be presented and discussed. That is, half of the topics will focus on political, managerial and administrative issues, and the other half will focus on technological issues, because both are essential to review and envision High Speed Rail. Therefore the congress will have and revolve around the 5 parallel sessions with the 5 streams:
Infrastructure and other fixed installations
Rolling Stock
Culture and Society.

The 9th UIC HIGHSPEED World Congress will reflect the temporal and topical 50-50 concept on its programme and will be structured:
Trade exhibition to illustrate the latest development of products and services in the field of High Speed. The exhibition will be held in the same resort as the congress sessions.
Technical visits with 8 courses including rides on Shinkansen trains running at a maximum speed of 320km/h and varieties of Shinkansen related facilities.

This UIC HIGHSPEED 2015 World Congress will be held at Tokyo International Forum, located in the middle of the Marunouchi business district, between Tokyo Station and Yùrakuchò Station.
