He said other improvements included the setting up of the Sighting Committee to perform audits on track markers and the Safety Committee to report safety audits to senior management of Prasarana and Rapid Rail.Wee said that, at the same time, Rapid Rail, as the operator of the Prasarana rail services, also reported good progress in the implementation of 11 medium-term measures, which must be implemented within three to six months.

“We are pleased to announce that 73 per cent of the relevant works have been completed and expected to meet the December 9 deadline.“As for the remaining seven (7) long-term measures, Prasarana is working with its stakeholders and relevant authorities such as the Land Public Transport Agency (APAD) to implement them progressively as some of it requires additional investment and technical expertise from various quarters,” he said.

Wee was also satisfied with Prasarana’s performance in driving Rapid Rail to implement additional improvements, including limiting the maximum speed of any trains that are driven manually to 20km per hour and increasing the frequency of competency training for hostlers and control executives.

Additional measures put in place included increasing the Manual Route Reservation (Automatic Train Protection) and adding the Buffer Zone (Automatic Train Protection) to protect any trains that lose their communication signals so that other approaching trains will stop at a further distance. headtopics.com
