Highlights from Period 8 (15 October to 11 November 2023)
Commercial project for Eurotunnel
As part of RSSB’s commercial offering, we have supported Eurotunnel with their approach to change management, risk assessment and associated justification evidence file submission to the Channel Tunnel Safety Authority. This work has been jointly delivered by the RSI and the RSSB Rolling Stock team.
The work covers two areas:
- the bogie spring defect and related vehicle dynamics issue
- the passenger shuttle upgrade in relation to electric vehicle fire risk provision
The initial phase of the work has now been delivered to Eurotunnel and RSSB is providing ongoing support on a call-off contract basis.
SPADs graphic insights page has been published on RSSB websiteThe graphic insights page for signals passed at danger was published this period. It combines visualisations and data analysis to present information we have on trends, risk profile and underlying causes in a more digestible format. In addition to defining what a SPAD is, the page provides a timeline of RSSB resources and industry support that have helped reduce SPAD risk since the early 2000’s. Plus, it compares the rate of SPADs for different train types from January 2021 through March 2023.
