TSBNZ has received a release of information from Kiwirail in respect of Level Crossing Safety Impact Assessment (LCSIA) documents for part of the area impacted by the current Wairarapa Line level crossing upgrades programme. At the present time the information released to date covers only Carterton District and Masterton District. South Wairarapa District relevant information has not been released yet because the matter is still being discussed with the District Council.
It will take some time for the information to be assessed in more detail and there will be further blog posting(s) when this has been done. The LCSIA is part of the key processes by which Kiwirail assesses level crossing safety across their network. The ALCAM framework from Australia has some limitations and the LCSIA is intended to help overcome these.
