This week we celebrate Tracksafe Rail Safety Week, which is timely with the announcement that trains will be returning to the Monaro.
The theme for this year is Expect the Unexpected, which is extremely important to remember for people who live, work or travel along the section of railway line between Chakola and Cooma. When a railway line has been inactive for a period of time, it’s easy to become complacent and not approach the railway the caution that we should.
🙋♀️It is important to remember:
🔸 Access to an active railway corridor is restricted to authorised personnel only
🔸 Track vehicles can be travelling on the railway at any time
🔸 Track vehicles can be loaded on to the track at any point along the line
🔸 Level crossings are now active and both road vehicles and pedestrians should check carefully before proceeding
👉 Our priority is to keep everyone safe so that we can all enjoy our railway heritage. If you live in the area, please take a moment to familiarise yourself with the active sections of railway in these images and remember, Expect the Unexpected!
