ARTC Refuge Siding Altona North

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ARTC Maintenance teams utilise the short refuge siding located at CRT Siding at Altona North. The siding is approximately 32 metres long.

When the tamper and ballast regulator are required to stable on this siding a portable derailer will be utilised to provide rollout protection.

Priority will be given to train services accessing the location when the tamper and regulator need to gain access to the main line.

The Project Delivery Manager Melbourne is to ensure that permission has been gained from the siding owner to access the refuge.

The Track Force Protection Coordinator is to contact the ARTC Network Controller prior to passing the STOP Board and traversing 11D points when departing the siding.

The Track Force Protection Coordinator is to contact the ARTC Network Controller and obtain verbal permission to pass 15/12 at stop prior to traversing 11D points when arriving into the siding or departing for the main line.

The Track Force Protection Coordinator is to ensure that the points (11D and / or 11U) are correctly set for the movement when arriving into the siding or departing for the main line.

The tamper and ballast regulator are not permitted past the STOP Board at the entrance to CRT Siding.
