Background: Why this Recommendation was developed

Output text

The ATSB recommends that Pacific National conduct further investigation and review into the suspension configuration of the RQZY wagon and similar wagons, with consideration to:

  • the wagons' ability to handle discrete wheel impacts when in tare condition
  • the wagons' ability to handle twisted track when loaded with a light weight empty container, noting that the wagon body would no longer retain its tare condition flexibility.
