Rail Interface Agreements

Tuesday, 25 June 2019

The Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR) has responsibility for oversight of rail safety throughout Australia, working with industry, government and other stakeholders on initiatives to improve safety and reduce incidents. 

Councils play a key role in managing safety risks at interfaces in consultation with rail operators. Interface agreements are the tool used to define the roles and responsibilities of the parties involved in managing those risks. The Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator (ONRSR) has been working with rail companies and state local government associations for a number of years to support rail and road managers to enter into interface agreements. 

Penalties currently apply for managers of rail infrastructure and private roads who fail to comply with these requirements, however from 1 July 2019, the same penalties will apply for managers of public roads.
