Almost wasn't gonna bother with this post because of all the self proclaimed industry know it alls on here that need to ultimately consult their own "rumour" mill to see if info is correct... but there is a 15km hour restriction through the whole Adelaide yard that is there due to balls up in placement of the upright gantry posts in the Adelaide yard. The new National rule book has infrastructure requiring to be 3 or more metres from the outside running rail, but these have been placed within the prescribed 3 m in reference to the OLD rule book. Watch this space.....
Another sad example of pathetic uninformed claptrap! Where - exactly - do the ANRP Rules say this?
Rule ANRP2001 - Walking in the Danger Zone? No.
Rule ANRP2017 - Working around electrical infastructure? No.
Rule ANRP3021 - Work that affects traction return currents or track circuits? No.
Then surely ....
Rule ANRP3000 - Planning work in the rail corridor? No. Not there either.
What the ANRP rules say is this:
The Danger Zone is all space within 3m horizontally from the nearest rail and any distance above or below this 3m, unless a safe place exists or can be created.
So. The effect? If personnel need to enter within the Danger Zone, certain rules of access must be applied. That's it.
When youknow what you are talking about, feel free to start talking.
