Works adjacent to railways

Care must be taken when positioning portable traffic signals near railways because they could be mistaken for railway signals. Where works require portable signals adjacent to a railway, in addition to obtaining highway authority approval, the railway authority should be informed.

Warning: At all times plant or machinery should be positioned so that no part of it or its load overhangs the railway outer boundary.
