Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||20 August 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
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.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Rail Track Corporation take action to address this safety issue.
