    Platform Train Interface Working Group

    Scope

    The purpose / objective of the Platform Train Interface Working Group (PTIWG) shall be to develop an industry agreed strategy for the PTI that:

    • Reduces safety risk and optimises operational performance and availability of access in a manner that promotes the long-term best interests of the mainline railway system.
    • Reflects the wide range of performance and engineering issues surrounding the PTI.
    • Accounts for both the short term and long term needs of the industry.
    • Defines the research, where appropriate, needed to develop and deliver the strategy.
    • Has industry buy-in for the implementation of the strategy.

    The funding arrangements or proposed funding arrangements for any actions that are recommended should be identified.

    Message from the chair

    There are over 1.71 billion passenger journeys on our railway each year, each of which requires the passenger to cross the PTI at least twice.  Between 2018 and 2019, the PTI accident risk profile increased by 7%.  The PTI WG is establishing a better understanding of this risk, bringing together good practice, commissioning research, and working with other groups to manage this area of risk.
