Rail safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Pacific National
|Date issued:||18 August 2005|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The ATSB recommends that the Freight Australia Emergency Management Plan or the current equivalent (if updated or replaced by Pacific National), ensures that in the event of an incident or suspected incident on the broad gauge track that immediate contact is made with the ARTC train controller. This recommendation applies to rail corridors in Victoria where Pacific National leased tracks and ARTC leased tracks parallel each other.
