Adelaide tram drivers to stop work
The CEO of the consortium operating the Gold Coast light rail says drivers will be completely safe if they follow road rules around the new lines.
Aan 88-year-old woman drove onto the tramlines at Southport and then 60 metres onto the Sundale Bridge, with one wheel on the line and the other on concrete a foot below, on the way to a hairdresser appointment.
Phil Mumford from GoldLinQ says it will not be expanding the safety campaign already in place.
"We will continue to do that right up to go live date and then beyond to educate people how to use light rail but the messages are simple," he said.
"If people follow the road rules, follow the signs, you can be completely safe and incidents like this can be avoided.
"This incident did not involve a light rail vehicle, it was the car itself that had travelled onto the tracks.
"So what I would encourage all drivers to do is to simply follow the road rules and these incidents can be avoided."
