Rail safety issues and actions
|Date issued:||15 August 2008|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
ARTC procedures for managing limit of authority over-runs by trains appear to be inconsistent with the applicable network rule as they do not mandate an immediate emergency call from the train control centre to the train crew as the first response.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Railway Track Corporation takes action to address this issue.
