Queensland Rail Interface Agreement

Penalties may apply to railway companies and road managers who violate their requirements for a train or road crossing. The National Railway Safety Act (NSNS) provides that railway companies and road managers coordinate measures at a rail or road crossing to ensure that safety risks are identified and minimized to the extent reasonably possible. An interface agreement is a formal written agreement between the road and/or railway managers involved. The format of the agreement can be defined by the parties, but must include the points covered in section 105 of the NLSN, such. B as the responsibilities of the parties in terms of enforcement action and a procedure for monitoring these measures, and ensure that new risks are identified and minimized over time. A model is also available. The specific responsibilities of each individual are defined in sections 106-108 of the NLSN. described.
