ARTC advised that the train control system software has been modified to provide for an interactive on-screen alert dialogue in the event that a network control officer attempts to set a route that includes the wrong gauge for the train that is to use it.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is satisfied that the action taken by ARTC adequately addresses the safety issue.
Current issue status:
Addressed by the addition of a warning control in software.
