Safety Issue

Downgrading of the ARTC Infrastructure Management System priority rating for sighting restoration work at the Murrow Farm level crossing, in this case from 28 days to 180 days, without a reassessment of the status of vegetation at the level crossing and its effect on sighting distances, increased the risk of a collision.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Rail Track Corporation take action to address this safety issue.
