Annual Report 2015


Traffic safety results of 2015

128 % fulfilment of an action programme to bring Russian Railways infrastructure into compliance with the rules of technical operation

The target traffic safety indicator for the Russian Railways Group had a value of 1.17 events per 1 mln train km in 2015 versus the planned level 1.58 events (a decrease of 26%).

The number of traffic safety violations committed on Russian Railways infrastructure increased by 70.2% (from 4,693 to 7,704). However, third party organisations operating on Russian Railways infrastructure were responsible for most of the violations (68%), including Russian railcar repair and construction enterprises (3,243 violations); CIS and Baltic nation enterprises (1,060); railway equipment and system maintenance enterprises (391) and vehicle drivers (272).

The number of traffic safety violations within the Central Infrastructure Directorate grew due to an increase in such violations by railcar enterprises by 38.5%, track and structure enterprises by 33%, electrification and power supply enterprises by 42.9% and mechanisation enterprises by 50%.

Spending on the Russian Railways Group’s Traffic Safety Programme totalled RUB 2.1 bln in 2015.

The internal efficiency of traffic safety investments was improved as part of the programme through the priority implementation of measures having the most significant key indicators.

An action programme to bring Russian Railways infrastructure into compliance with technical operating rules (TOR) was fulfilled at a rate of 128% in 2015: despite the plan to eliminate discrepancies with TOR requirements at 26,386 facilities, work was actually performed at 33,784 facilities. Total spending on these measures amounted to RUB 141.8 bln, or less than the planned expenditures of RUB 146.2 bln.
