Railway infrastructure maintenance alliances: delivering the outcomes
The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) is completing its fifth year of railway infrastructure maintenance alliancing and is pleased with the outcomes achieved for all parties. For the ARTC, the outcomes achieved have been improvements in reliability and transit time whilst achieving real reductions in the costs of maintenance, whilst our Customers (Train Operators) have continued to enjoy improved infrastructure and operational yields. For ARTC's Alliance partners, they have enjoyed higher productivity, higher staff satisfaction whilst improving their overall returns. This paper will outline the approach to establishing these alliances, the establishment and setting of Key Performance Indicators and outcomes expected/required from the Alliance, Alliance staffing and culture issues. This will include some discussion on the culture that is best sought and suited by both parties to ensure a successful Alliance, an Alliance that delivers.
