Working near a railway means working an unusual environment. When it comes to road works, a driver or cyclist can quickly swerve or brake if anything happens on the road or bicycle path. A train driver cannot. A train travels at high speeds (140 km/h), has a very long braking distance (1,500 metres) and carries many people (260+). Additionally, driving a train often involves a high voltage (1,800V or 25kV) overhead line. Due to this, you need to take into account the many ‘track’ rules aimed at keeping workers and passengers safe. The most important rules are discussed in this toolbox.
