SYSTRA appointed as preferred Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) for Newcastle Light Rail


SYSTRA was engaged by Transport for NSW to act as Independent Safety Assessor (ISA) for the Newcastle Light Rail project. The role of an ISA is to provide objective opinion on project development whilst being entirely independent. The ISA is an integral part of safety management, providing independent review to ensure the project undertakes an appropriate safety assurance process.

Newcastle Light Rail is 2.7 kilometres of light rail track that runs from Wickham Transport Interchange to Pacific Park, with services commencing in February 2019. This high capacity transport system is designed to cut city centre congestion, connect key activity precincts, and provide a frequent, reliable and comfortable travel option in Newcastle.

SYSTRA is a fully accredited Independent Safety Assessor in New South Wales and subsequently ISA for Parramatta Light Rail.
