Coffee with the Editor - Acting CEO, Railway Safety Regulator, Ms Tshepo Kgare

A fantastic interview with the Acting CEO of the Railway Safety Regulator (RSR), Ms Tshepo Kgare. We chat about the story the trend analysis in the State of Safety Report 2018/2019 is telling. We talk about the PRASA modernisation programme and if once rolled out, we will see a shift in culture and attitude.

Reflecting on the conference presentations, particularly that of Simon Fletcher from the International Union of Railways (UIC), Europe – in terms of modernisation, it is easy to think of Europe as advanced. They have the same issues we have here in when it comes to interoperability and different technology. In South Africa, we are in a better space to embrace the opportunities of the 4th industrial revolution as we don’t have the same legacy issues. In many instances, technology is being introduced for the very first time.

We talk about regional and local integration, technology, smart mobility, jobs and the rail sector in general.
