Changes to Temporary Speed Signs and Flashing Lights

The use of a new blue warning sign and changes to flashing lights will be effective from 24 March 2019.

The current WARNING and CAUTION signs have the same background yellow colour and in some instances proven difficult to readily identify the sign type. The change to the blue WARNING sign will visually separate it from the CAUTION sign and allow Drivers and Track Vehicle Operators to respond appropriately to the sign type.

Flashing lights used on temporary speed signs will be extended throughout Sydney Trains Network to provide better visual indications of the signs during darkness or low visibility.

A safe track has been published on RailSafe with more details.

Information about Changes to Temporary Speed Signs and Flashing Lights is now available on SafeTracks ST 2019-04.
