Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||15 August 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
There was insufficient sighting distance of the Down distant signal and insufficient distance between the Down distant signal and Down outer home signal at Gloucester to allow train 2WB3 to stop at the Down outer home signal from the permitted track speed of 70 km/h.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Railway Track Corporation takes action to address this issue.
