Transport safety bulletins
Transport safety bulletins are published to promote improved safety performance in transport services. Bulletins provide more detail on specific safety topics, based on research and data, to inform the NSW transport industry and the wider transport community.
- Level crossing accidents in Australia
- Collisions between road vehicles and trains at level crossings remain one of the biggest safety risks for rail operations in Australia, accounting for about 30% of rail related fatalities over the past five years. The human and economic cost of these accidents can be extreme, with individual collisions having the potential to cause multiple fatalities and damage costs exceeding tens of million of dollars.
- Focus on signals passed at danger
- This bulletin is dedicated to signals passed at danger (SPAD), an occurrence whereby a train passes a signal displaying a stop indication without the authority to do so.
