HKRP was asked to complete the Operational Concept Document (OCD) for the Gowrie to Kagaru section of ARTC's Inland Rail Program.
This section of the Inland Rail involves the ascent of the Great Dividing Range between Helidon in the Lockyer Valley and Gowrie to the North of Toowoomba. Accordingly, a large part of the focus of this document was placed on understanding the operational needs of the stakeholders involved with the Tunnel. The other main areas of focus were the needs of stakeholders around Level Crossings, Track Interfaces with other Rail Infrastructure Managers (RIMs) and Wayside Monitoring.
HKRP utilised scenarios analysis and MBSE modelling to quickly gather stakeholder needs during a number of workshops. The speed with which scenarios can be captured using these techniques allowed the team to explore more scenarios than planned to improve the value provided by this OCD exercise.
