Safety Issue

The intent of section 15, rule 5 of the network rules was misconstrued by the Works Infrastructure compliance officer and the North Geelong 'C' signalbox signaller in protecting the Separation Street overpass work site. Their interpretation of section 15, rule 5 introduced the risk of a miscommunication and single person error. It relied totally on the signaller holding the protecting signals at 'stop'. No additional protection was afforded to the work site.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that Works Infrastructure take action to address this safety issue.
