At about 20:35 on 4 May 2010, a Flinders Street to Craigieburn Metro Trains Melbourne suburban train, travelling on the Down broad gauge line, ran into the rear wagon of a stationary Pacific National freight train midway between Roxburgh Park and Craigieburn stations. At the time, the freight train was stopped at a signal waiting for the departure of an Up suburban train occupying the Down line platform at Craigieburn. The driver and 14 passengers on the suburban train were treated by paramedics on site with the driver and four passengers subsequently being taken to hospital. The two crew members of the freight train were uninjured. Both trains were extensively damaged with the freight train being propelled about 30 metres forward from the point of impact. The investigation determined that the driver of the suburban train had passed two automatic signals after departing Roxburgh Park that presented a stop aspect. When passing the signals the driver did not comply with the network Rules and operating procedures. The train was then operated at speeds up to 69 km/h, also in contravention of the Book of Rules and Operating Procedures 1994. The reason for the driver's actions could not be determined.

This textbook provides students with real-world social marketing case studies from different countries and regions around the world, taking learners from classroom theory to practice. The primary objective is to clearly portray to students distinct, identifiable steps that are essential for successful social marketing campaigns. Core social marketing practices are applied to each case to help students master social marketing principles and apply them to their own real world social marketing activities in order to affect positive social change. This textbook first provides the tools necessary to understand the effective applica- tion of social marketing, and then offers 24 case studies exemplifying effective social marketing efforts from all around the world. Specifically, Part I clearly and concisely explains the principles of social marketing in five chapters: • Upstream vs. downstream social marketing, SWOT, competition • Fundamentals of social marketing, ethics • Formative and Evaluative Research • Theories applied in social marketing • A historical perspective on social marketing Part II features 24 social marketing case studies that demonstrate the application of social marketing principles. All 24 cases follow a consistent structure that includes: • Background • Positioning • SWOT • Research • Objectives • The 4 P’s • Target audience • Evaluation • Barriers and benefits • Discussion • Competition This format allows for students and professors to easily and effectively select individual cases and compare between cases. This textbook also allows instructors to encourage critical thinking by having students compare and contrast not only the cases themselves, but the applications used. In addition, teaching guides with answers to discussion questions, suggestions for activities inside and outside of the classroom and further readings are available to assist professors in teaching from this book.

For more than a decade, Melbourne has had the fastest-growing population of any Australian capital city. It is expanding outward while also growing upward through vast new high-rise developments in the inner suburbs. With an estimated 1.6 million additional homes needed by 2050, planners and policymakers need to address current and emerging issues of amenity, function, productive capacity and social cohesion today. Planning Melbourne reflects on planning since the post-war era, but focuses in particular on the past two decades and the ways that key government policies and influential individuals and groups have shaped the city during this time. The book examines past debates and policies, the choices planners have faced and the mistakes and sound decisions that have been made. Current issues are also addressed, including housing affordability, transport choices, protection of green areas and heritage and urban consolidation. If Melbourne’s identity is to be shaped as a prospering, socially integrated and environmentally sustainable city, a new approach to governance and spatial planning is needed and this book provides a call to action.

Presenting a brand new approach to teaching consumer behaviour, Szmigin and Piacentini move beyond traditional psychological learning to acknowledge more holistic perspectives of consumer behaviour and incorporate new areas of research, such as Consumer Culture Theory, which are enhancing ourunderstanding of this fascinating subject. The latest behavioural, psychological and sociological approaches are presented alongside emerging techniques, such as neuromarketing, with their application to marketing explicitly drawn out. Theory is firmly set in context for students through extensive use of international examples and extended cases on topics such as repertoire shopping in China, lifestyles of Indian consumers, and learning about brands through Havaianas in Brazil.Each chapter includes Consumer Insights covering topics such as social media marketing in the Netherlands, repositioning Lucozade in the UK, and finding the right celebrity endorser. These features bring together the themes discussed and encourage students to engage with the material on a morepractical level.Central to the book is the recognition of how businesses and government are likely to use knowledge of these theories and techniques in marketing strategies and business decision making. Each chapter includes a Practitioner Insight from a professional working in marketing, advertising, government ora charity, including Dubit, Thinkbox and Age UK to provide real world views on the topics being discussed and the possible future direction of these areas.The authors acknowledge consumer behaviour as a research discipline. To reflect this, Research Insights features throughout each chapter include links to seminal papers to present students with the opportunity to take their learning further.The accompanying Online Resource Centre provides superior ready-to-use support for both students and lecturers: For students:* Author blog, responding to changes within the subject and supporting the currency of the textbook;* Web links illustrating consumer behaviour in practice including examples from print, video and web;* Multiple choice questions with instant feedback;* Links to seminal articles as highlighted in the Research Insights feature; * Web exercises to encourage students to test their knowledge and apply their learning;* Flashcard glossary to test understanding of key terms.For lecturers:* Comprehensive customizable PowerPoint slides; * Learning activities (including, more detailed workshop-based activities, shorter lecture-based in-class exercises and suggestions for assessment approaches)* An instructor's manual (containing guidance on how to use the case studies and Practitioner Insights in class, indicative answers, and some additional questions).

Competitive Tendering of Rail Services

Competitive tendering provides a way to introduce competition to railways whilst preserving an integrated network of services. It has been used for freight railways in some countries but is particularly attractive for passenger networks when subsidised services make competition between trains serving the same routes difficult or impossible to organise. Governments promote competition in railways to reduce costs, not least to the tax payer, and to improve levels of service to customers. Concessions are also designed to bring much needed private capital into the rail industry. The success of competitive tendering in achieving these outcomes depends critically on the way risks are assigned between the government and private train operators. It also depends on the transparency and durability of the regulatory framework established to protect both the public interest and the interests of concession holders, and on the incentives created by franchise agreements. This report examines experience to date from around the world in competitively tendering rail services. It seeks to draw lessons for effective design of concessions and regulation from both the successful and less successful cases examined. The work is based on detailed examinations by leading experts of the experience of passenger rail concessions in the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands. It also draws on examples of freight rail concessions in Latin America.
