Ballarat Line Upgrade (BLU) is the first project in the $1.75 billion dollar portfolio of Region Rail Revival program that will see upgrades to every regional passenger train line in Victoria. Even more so, BLU is one of several Victorian rail projects taking place concurrently in the recent years of infrastructure boom. This brings a great security to those in the railway industry to not move interstate looking for project work but also brings many challenges to meet infrastructure needs.
The paper intends to briefly outline the BLU project and provide a signalling perspective in the success and challenges of delivering major capital works. The content will mainly relate to signalling delivery, design, technology choices, program, procurement, standards, resource, cost, and time will be explored with practical application through past and recent experiences.
The future of delivery of projects has an opportunity to share the lessons learnt with industry to mature and streamline the processes and applications of delivery.
