Metro cannot say when it will reopen the Stony Point railway line after it was shut this week after a series of safety breaches in which boom gates failed to drop for an approaching train.
The most recent level crossing failure happened last week in Tyabb, south of Melbourne.
It was the second failure this month and the last straw for rail operator Metro, which closed the line indefinitely on Monday to avoid the risk of a collision.
Poor track condition has been blamed for the boom gate failures. Contamination from rust, leaves and sand is interfering with track signals that detect a train's approach, Metro said.
Seriously. Metro blame track maintenance issues and they are responsible for maintenance.
Is the long island BHP train still running 4 times per day?
