This report tables rail safety occurrence data by state and
territory between January 2001 and December 2007. Data is adjusted
annually to reflect new information that comes to light during the
reporting period. There is a lag period of approximately 3 to 4
months between the end of the reporting period and publication of
these data. Previous versions of this publication should be
discarded. These data are presented as counts and normalised using
kilometres travelled and number of track kilometres. Data presented
in this report conforms to Standard No. ON-S1: Occurrence
Categories and Definitions. This report excludes tram and light
rail or monorail operations.

On 2 June 2008, the ATSB was notified by the South Australian
Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure that the data
originally published in May 2008 for South Australian running
line collision with road vehicle incidents
prior to 2005
included collisions with trams while running on roadways. These
incidents have been removed from Table 13 in this amended version
of the report.
