OPTIMISING THE ALL-IMPORTANT WHEEL-RAIL SYSTEM IN INDIA TO ACHIEVE NEARLY ZERO FATAL DERAILMENTS ON RAIL-TRACK ACCOUNT; PART II
“ZERO TOLERANCE” is a new “buzzword” used in particular context with “ZERO ACCIDENT VISION” in transport environment and has been recently used by the new Indian Minister of Railways Mr. Piush Goyal, when calling for Innovation in Railway Safety and speaking at the INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS IN RAILWAYS & METRO PROJECTS, 6-7th OCT 2017, Manekshaw Centre, New Delhi. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal stressed on the importance of innovation and out-of-the-box thinking.
“Innovation” and “out-of-Box Thinking” are not the problem. Out-of-box Thinking, Innovations and Technologies assuring nearly ZERO fatal Derailment Accidents on Track-Account are in India at hand.
The problems are budgeting, management, organization, logistics, education and teaching, manpower, tools, modern track-machineries, updated working manuals, supervision, controlling and generative safety culture.
Indian Railway Engineers have all the capabilities and competence to adopt those Technologies. For the “CLOSE-TO-ZERO ACCIDENT GOAL” and for the “ULTIMATE GOAL TO PREVENT UNWANTED NASTY DERAILMENT-DISASTERS”, killing and injuring Train-Passengers, massive input in Capital Investment Schemes of long-term certainty and organisational as well logistic Measurements in Safety related Infrastructure Works optimizing the all-important Wheel-Rail System on all routes are of paramount importance. With well-maintained Wheels on Modern Railway Tracks the likelihood of Derailments will be nearly ZERO. Train-Passenger`s Freedom from bodily Harm and Injury matters most.
The “CLOSE-TO-ZERO DERAILMENT GOAL” can be achieved by OPTIMISING THE ALL-IMPORTANT WHEEL-RAIL-SYSTEM on all routes of Indian Railways.
