Some parts of the rail corridor are electrified, and have traction overhead wires.
It is dangerous to come too close or to touch overhead electrical equipment. This could cause injury or death by shock or burns.
In order to keep everyone safe and avoid any damage to property, we require anyone working within four metres of an electrified area (including traction poles, overhead wires, substations or switchgear equipment) to have an Electrical Safety Permit or Permit to Work Near Railway Power Lines.
This permit will detail safe approach distances, voltages, work method restrictions, safety information and emergency contact details.
Training in Electrification Awareness may also be required.
