Interface Co-ordination

Interfaces include level crossings, road-over-rail bridges and rail-over-road bridges.

A formal written agreement between John Holland as manager of the Country Regional Network (CRN), and third-parties is required to assess and manage any safety risks at these interface points.

These Safety Interface Agreements (SIAs) formalise the obligations of each party to ensure all safety risks are managed.

The agreements also describe how the success of arrangements is monitored.


Safety Interface Agreements

Rolling stock operators need an access agreement with Transport for NSW and a Safety Interface Agreement with John Holland - both must be executed and valid before the operators are allowed access to the network.

Other parties who may need an interface agreement with John Holland include:

  • private siding owners
  • private land owners
  • utility service providers
  • road authorities, and
  • local councils.
