Abstract

The chapter summarises a research project undertaken to explore how the design of vulnerable rail assets might be better adapted to reduce incidents of vandalism within the context of Melbourne’s rail network. The design approach utilised the novel application of linking rail assets, users and operators through both physical and system-based interventions. Ultimately, the project’s outcomes demonstrate how the proactive redesign of vandalism-affected assets can assist operators in developing more targeted, proactive and effective solutions.
