Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a car crash at Springwood overnight which has left a car on rail tracks.
About 3am today a 48-year-old Katoomba man was driving his Toyota Prado westbound on the Great Western Highway.
It appears the driver has struck the boundary fence of the rail corridor and destroyed the pedestrian crossing on the city bound line causing significant damage to the gate structure and the signal controller.
The 4WD continued about 100metres along the track until the driver attempted to leave the tracks and get back to the roadway.
The vehicle came to a stop in a drainage ditch, three metres from the track.
Repairs are now being made to the signal equipment and will continue on the pedestrian crossing.
It is anticipated that the vehicle will remain at the location until later today when additional crews will be required to remove a section of boundary fence to tow the vehicle out.
Blue Mountains Police continue with their investigations into the incident.
