Safety Issue

It is likely that motorists who traverse the Barpinba-Poorneet Road level crossing regularly fail to come to a halt at the 'Stop' signs.


Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Victorian Department of Infrastructure10 take action to address this safety issue.


10. The Victorian Rail system operates on the principle of 'co-regulation'. The state regulatory body, Public Transport Safety Victoria (PTSV), a separate statutory office within the Department of Infrastructure (DoI), accredits all rail owners/operators in Victoria, subject to satisfying the accreditation criteria set out in the Transport Act 1983.
