Ref # 2011-012
Status Closed
Occurrence Road vehicle struck at level crossing XM096, County Roscommon.
Occurrence Date 02 September 2010
Date Closed 01/12/2014

Basis for Recommendation

The known users of XM096 were not captured on the LC user register although they had been in contact with IÉ in the past as there was no process in place governing this, allowing the use of railway signals by LC users not to be addressed. This has led to the following safety recommendation:


IÉ should put in place a formal process for identifying and communicating with known users of user worked LCs.
