Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||28 August 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The railway 'Stop' sign assembly (RX-2 modified) positioned approximately 4.6 m from the nearest rail instead of nearer to 3.5 m as recommended in Australian Standard AS 1742.7, made it more difficult for the driver to gain a clear view of approaching trains.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Rail Track Corporation take action to address this safety issue.
