RSSB will shortly be launching a competition for up to £3.25m seeking collaborative and innovative proposals to improve the operational performance of the railway. Proposals will ideally have two or more Railway Undertakings (RU)* and/or Rolling Stock Leasing Companies (ROSCOs) working in collaboration with suppliers. Proposals are likely to address one or more of the 4C’s (Cost, Carbon, Capacity and Customer) and be aligned to challenges/themes outlined within the 2012 Rail Technical Strategy (RTS) and/or the 2017 RTS Capability Delivery Plan.
Initial work with operators has identified possible priority areas as:
– Operations timed to the second
– Minimal disruption to train services
– Energy optimisation
However, the scope of the competition will not be limited to these three themes.
What you need to do:
Further details of the competition scope will be made available on release of the formal documentation on November 15th and there will be a briefing and networking event taking place on Monday 11 December 2017 in Birmingham at iCentrum, between 10am – 4pm.
