LTK-designed railcarSafety is key. 

The New Intercity Fleet (NIF) Maintenance Facility at Kangy Angy is being designed and constructed by John Holland for Transport for New South Wales. This facility will service and maintain the new fleet of trains travelling between Sydney and the Central Coast, Newcastle, the Blue Mountains, and the South Coast.

LTK Australia has led the safety assurance program for the project including the management of several other safety assurance and human factors resources within the client organisation. LTK was responsible for managing safety assurance requirements at the Gate 3 stage of the project and preparing the project for progress through the testing and commissioning phases. This involved a series of safety-in-design workshops inclusive of detailed Hazard Identification (HAZID), transfer and acceptance of residual risk to the eventual owners and operators, and preparation of key assurance documentation such as Safety Risk Summary Reports (SRSR), So Far As Is Reasonable Practicable (SFAIRP) statements, continuous hazard log management, and safety assessments on key issues such as which kind of derailer system to provide the level of depot protection required. In addition to safety assurance, LTK  assisted in the requirements management for the project and helped the transition to a DOORS-based system.
