Resumen: Durante el siglo XIX en Chile y por tres generaciones, los Guzmán fueron aclamados músicos clásicos. La literatura indica que su patriarca Fernando Guzmán y su hijo Francisco llegaron a Chile desde Mendoza, Argentina, alrededor de 1822. Existe no información sobre su herencia, orígenes y la correcta composición de su numerosa familia. Hay...

During the 19th century in Chile and for three generations, the Guzmán’s were acclaimed classical musicians. The literature indicates that their patriarch Fernando Guzmán and his son Francisco arrived in Chile from Mendoza, Argentina in about 1822. There is little or no information regarding their heritage, origins and the correct composition of th...

The research investigates the impact of railroad level crossings closures on traffic congestion at crossings in close proximity of railway stations. It is proposed that congestion at station level crossings is not caused by the level crossing intersection closure operation, but rather by train arrivals or at platforms, forcing the intersection to r...

A prefabricated modular railway station reusable platform system made off-site and transported in modules for assembly at location. When no longer required, the platform system modules can be dismantled and removed with ease; the modules can then be transported for installation at another location or moved to storage for later use at another instal...

Modular Railway Station Reusable Platform System (MRSRPS) A prefabricated modular railway station reusable platform system made off-site and transported in modules for assembly at location. The modular railway station reusable platform system is designed to be implemented as a temporary platform solution, a new permanent platform structure, as a r...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study investigates the impact of level crossings closures on traffic congestion at crossings adjacent to or in the close proximity of railway stations, proposing the theory that making alterations to the infrastructure of the station can derive a reduction of intersection closure periods at these locations. These infrastructure alterations rel...
Thesis
Full-text available
This thesis investigates level crossings road congestion, proposing that alterations to station platforms positioning results in reducing intersection closure periods. In order to develop theory, a railway station precinct in Melbourne was simulated using traffic simulation software. Simulation results confirmed that platform repositioning mitigate...

his research investigates traffic congestion at railway level crossings adjacent to or in the close proximity of railway stations. Traffic congestion at railway level crossings has many implications on logistics and can significantly delay urban deliveries. We propose that a reduction of boom barriers down time periods at these locations can be der...

In August 2013 and for the third consecutive year, Melbourne has been accredited as the most liveable city in the world. However, the city is also known and credited for a less attractive reason as \“The City of Level Crossings”; the city’s metropolitan area is home to 170 railroad level crossings (RLX). Since 2006, Melbourne has experienced unprec...

This research investigates and proposes the introduction of Zonal Operations (ZO) in the Caulfield Group corridor that includes some of Melbourne’s longest and busiest lines within the rail network. The research discusses the concept of ZO, analyses the claim that ZO resolves capacity and overcrowding problems, a claim proposed in research literatu...

Since the inception of railways systems as a mode of transport during the middle of the 19th century, train stations have been built with similar configurations. Since early parts of the 20th century and as the motor vehicle proliferated, it necessitated the introduction of new safety measures at rail and road intersections, to separate the two tra...
Thesis
This research aims at investigating what impact additional arterial traffic along Clayton Road and additional trains on the Dandenong line would have at Clayton Railway level crossing, a known bottleneck area at this major arterial road, Metropolitan Route 23.

Train station platform edge gap research. Innovation Patent for the research granted 8 March 2017 under the name of Modular Railway Station Reusable Platform System (MRSRPS) Patent description indicates a prefabricated modular railway station reusable platform system made off-site and transported in modules for assembly at location. When no longer required, the platform system modules can be dismantled and removed with ease; the modules can then be transported for installation at another location or moved to storage for later use at another installation.
