UAE: Dubai’s Roads & Transport Authority has launched an electronic platform for railway engineering information, containing about 800 000 documents relating to assets on the metro’s Red and Green lines as well as data about the authority, consultants, project contractors, rail operators and other bodies.
‘The platform ensures the accuracy, speed and accessibility to information, documentation of engineering changes in assets, and provides multiple options for data management’, said RTA Director-General and Chairman Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer on February 13.
‘RTA has completed the training of beneficiaries of the platform, published technical manuals consistent with top international practices, and linked the platform with the maintenance system. During the first quarter of this year, all processes relating to the management of engineering changes, operations and maintenance will be automated. Later on, documents related to the Dubai Tram and Route 2020 will be uploaded.’
