Australian Rail Safety Occurrence Data, January 2001 to December 2007


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.
