Transport &Infrastructure

A sophisticated and accessible infrastructure system is a vital link in Australia’s transportation chain, connecting communities and strengthening industry.

The transport sector is undergoing a period of rapid transition, coinciding with the increasing congestion experienced by our cities as they face unprecedented population growth.


Electrification, automation and enhancements in communications technology have the potential to transform supply chains and the way people travel. However, as projects become larger and increasingly complex, they also have the capacity to disrupt risk and assurance frameworks. 

JVAT’s management solutions are tailored to meet the unique challenges challenging this sector. Delivered by our specialist team of consultants, engineers and assurance experts, we provide great rigour and consistency around infrastructure identification, evaluation and implementation.

While inspiring confidence through quality and innovation, JVAT’s risk and assurance solutions must also meet the following industry criteria:

  1. Extensive practical experience in the implementation of compliant Software Management Programs and software quality assurance against RTCA DO-178C, IEC 61508 and, EN50128.

  2. Transport project System Assurance Programs (SAP) through application of the Australian Railway Industry Safety and Standards Board (RISSB) Standards and Codes of Practice.

  3. Implementation of best practice material from the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR) and European CENELEC Railway Application standard.

  4. Specification and demonstration of reliability, availability, maintainability and safety (RAMS)

  5. Implementation, application and assurance against EN 50128, EN 50129 and ISO 26262 standards for software and electronic systems.

  6. Compliance to the Australian Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) Act and Safe Work Australia model Codes of Practice (CoP), tailored for the specific WHS legislation and regulations in Australian states and territories.

Most importantly, JVAT’s key focus is on ensuring quality information is provided at the right time to Transport and Infrastructure stakeholders in order to ensure 'justified confidence' in the sector’s risk management maturity, as well as to allow informed risk-based decision making. 

Transport and Infrastructure is critical to our society and economy; we are proud to be at the forefront of major projects across Australia.
With rapid innovation and automation across our rail network, it is critical that risk and assurance standards are maintained and improved.

Metro Tunnel Project

Rail Projects Victoria engaged JVAT to deliver a Metro Tunnel Project System-Level Preliminary Hazard Analysis to identify potential risks affecting safe corridor operations, rolling stock, stations and infrastructure maintenance. The outcome of this engagement ensured the project identified hazards and captured important information early to influence the design and safety program, which de-risked the overall project delivery.Read More
