Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||24 October 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The approach warning signage on the south west approach of the Barpinba- Poorneet Road level crossing was not compliant with AS1742.7-1993 and in poor repair. A motorist unfamiliar with the road would probably be unaware of the level crossing until they could directly sight it.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Colac Otway Shire Council take action to address this safety issue.
