R2.7bn rail systems upgrade for Gauteng

first_img5 December 2013 The Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (Prasa) has awarded the South African arm of German engineering company Siemens a €180-million (R2.7-billion) contract to implement world-class signalling systems and track upgrades on the Johannesburg and Pretoria rail networks. Announcing the award of the contract on Wednesday, Prasa CEO Lucky Montana said the signalling systems project would increase capacity and ensure more flexibility, greater safety and fewer train delays in Gauteng province. “The need for more effective train control is important as the number, speed, mass and length of the trains in Gauteng increase,” Montana said in a statement issued by Siemens. The agency is preparing to replace South Africa’s ageing passenger fleet with modern commuter trains, which are expected to hit the tracks in 2015. Montana said Prasa would be spending almost R7-billion over the next three years on signalling system upgrades countrywide. Siemens said the signalling overhaul was “first of its kind for South Africa”, involving the replacement of outdated technology – some of it dating back to the 1930s – with modern electronic systems. “Key features of the upgrade include the introduction of electronic interlocking systems, the upgrade and/or building of new relay rooms, a brand new train detection system, overhead and track changes, and implementation of a custom-designed train control operating system across the entire Gauteng network,” the company said in a statement. Siemens was first commissioned in 2011 to upgrade a quarter of the province’s signalling system and to build a state-of-the-art central operations centre. The new contract will involve the modernisation of the remaining three-quarters of Gauteng’s signalling network. “Completion of the rail signalling project will see the Gauteng railway network aligned with modern urban rail networks across the world,” said Lucio Lefebvre, senior project manager at Siemens South Africa. According to Lefebvre, a main feature of the central operations centre is a command room housing a 52-metre wide video wall that shows the movement of trains and all activity across the entire Gauteng rail network. A fully integrated monitoring system will pick up faults and any tampering with the network. “The new system is vandal-resistant, and rigorous measures against theft and sabotage have been incorporated into the full network design,” Lefebvre said, adding: “The whole project is underpinned by stringent testing and safety processes.” Siemens said local production would account for 60% of the project, with much of the engineering, manufacturing and testing due to take place at its factory in Northriding, Johannesburg. With around 25 000 kilometres of track, South Africa’s railway network is the largest in Africa and the tenth largest in the world. Gauteng, the country’s smallest but most densely populated province, is South Africa’s economic hub as well as a financial and logistical gateway to the southern African region.

Rep Wentworth Michigan House approves critical civil asset forfeiture reforms

first_img Categories: Wentworth News 28Feb Rep. Wentworth: Michigan House approves critical civil asset forfeiture reforms Bipartisan plan protects due process rights of residentsState Reps. Jason Wentworth, right, and David LaGrand speak in support of their civil asset forfeiture reform plan on Feb. 19 before the House Judiciary Committee.A bipartisan solution to improve the civil asset forfeiture process and better protect the due process rights of all Michigan residents was overwhelmingly approved today by the Michigan House.Reps. Jason Wentworth (R-Clare) and David LaGrand (D-Grand Rapids) sponsored the plan, which requires a criminal conviction before the government can take ownership of personal property through civil asset forfeiture.“Everyone deserves their day in court before their personal property is taken away for good,” Wentworth said. “This simple and reasonable solution will safeguard the due process rights of innocent people across Michigan while still allowing our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and protect public safety.”In 2017, Michigan law enforcement agencies reported confiscating $13.1 million in cash and property through civil asset forfeiture. In more than 200 cases, people who were later found not guilty were forced to forfeit their property, never to have it returned. Charges were never even filed in a staggering 736 cases.Under the plan approved today, officers will be able to seize property based on probable cause, but a criminal conviction would be required before law enforcement agencies can sell or use the property. This will ensure property can be returned to an individual if they are found not guilty in the criminal system.“It is vital that government respect the Constitutional right to due process and protect people from government seizure of private property,” LaGrand said. “I’ve been on both sides of litigation on asset forfeiture as an assistant prosecutor and a defense attorney. I’ve seen firsthand that many citizens facing asset forfeiture are confused and lack the resources to defend themselves. This bipartisan plan allows police to continue to go after large criminal organizations, while making sure innocent people have full access to justice.”The plan is laid out in House Bills 4001-02, which now move to the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee for consideration.###last_img read more
