Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||24 October 2007|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
During the investigation it was noted that the Australian Rail Track Corporation and the Colac Otway Shire Council did not have an 'Interface Agreement' covering their respective maintenance responsibilities with respect to the maintenance of level crossing signage. Maintenance responsibilities need to be clearly defined.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Colac Otway Shire Council take action to address this safety issue.
