Rail safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure
|Date issued:||06 October 2009|
|Safety action status:||Closed - Action Taken|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Australian Rail Track Corporation had not been approached as part of the SA Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure's (DTEI) process of issuing Heavy Vehicle Permits for routine 'fixed term' Restricted Access Vehicle operations. Consequently, the process may preclude the opportunity to determine all risks associated with a railway level crossing, or identify changes to a railway level crossing risk profile that may have occurred over a period of time.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure take further action to address this safety issue.
