RAIL And TRAnSIT
The projects in this category share the common goals of driving down maintenance costs, improving asset knowledge
and reliability, managing rail real estate, renewing and reconfiguring existing infrastructure, designing and delivering
new infrastructure, and planning urban integration. These projects demonstrate innovation in the rail and transit
lifecycle, ranging from data collection and design to maintenance and capital project planning.
Gautrain Rapid Rail Link
Johannesburg, South Africa
The growth of the South African province of Gauteng is limited by congested
highways and a lack of public transportation. As such, the government realized
it had to create a new transportation system to promote growth. Gautrain
proposed a rapid rail link that connects Tshwane to Johannesburg and Sandton
to OR TIA International Airport. Trains operating at up to 160 kilometers per hour
will travel along 80 kilometers of rail to link 11 stations.
Gautrain selected Project Wise as the document management system for
use among all the consortium members. For the tendering process, a unique
customized solution was introduced with five levels of security. All project team
members and design reviewers were trained to use Project Wise and required to
work within the system.
