Ref # 2023001-12
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Dangerous occurrence involving a Double SPAD at Clontarf Road Station, 7th December 2021
Occurrence Date 07 December 2021

Basis for Recommendation

Driver E240 made a call to the Central Signalman rather than an emergency call through the GSMR train system that would have notified the driver ahead of the urgency to clear the line approximately fifty-seven seconds earlier; as a result, the RAIU make the following safety recommendation:


IÉ-RU Ops should brief all drivers on the importance of making an open call in an emergency situation rather that calling the Signalmen direct.
