Wayside speed detection now online
The recently installed Wayside detection equipment are up and running at various locations throughout the network.
While they are for detecting wheel variances and sticking brakes, the equipment can also be utilised to detect train speeds.
Any over-speed detections above 5-10kph will be automatically reported to RMC and will be treated as an incident. These will be investigated by the operator utilising data loggers and event recorders etc as an additional reference. Significant over-speeds above 20kph will be reported to the regulator.
Please remember to always stick to the speed limits, and if you have any concerns about how the system is used please contact your local delegate or the office.
