Low speed derailment near Kimberley
A BRIDGEWATER man who allegedly spray painted graffiti in a rail tunnel north of Hobart at the weekend has been charged.
Sergeant Jason Klug said the man’s alleged actions were illegal and risky.
“Trains can operate at irregular times and there’s no warning as to their arrival,” Sgt Klug said.
“They can’t stop in a short distance and risk-taking in these circumstances affects the wellbeing of offenders and train drivers.”
Sgt Klug said police went to the railway tunnel near the Brighton Industrial Estate on Saturday after receiving reports of graffiti being spray painted.
He said police found a man spray painting alongside the railway line.
The man will appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court at a later date.
“Police actively work with TasRail to keep the rail corridors safe,” Sgt Klug said.
