(*) Portland (inclusive) to Maroona (exclusive) Corridor

(*) A maximum TEMPORARY SPEED RESTRICTION of 40km/h applies between Maroona Signal 8 to the end of the ARTC Network at Portland 405.256km.

Rail Traffic Crews are to comply with any lower TSR speeds encountered enroute.

(*) Due to infrequent rail traffic movements on the Portland to Maroona corridor, between Maroona Signal 8 and Portland Signal 14, the following instruction regarding all active level crossings applies:

All Train Orders issued on the Portland to Maroona corridor for rail traffic movements between Maroona Signal 8 and Portland Signal 1, are to be endorsed:

""Approach All Active Level Crossings With Caution, Train Notice 1455/2022 applies""

All drivers of rail traffic movements on approach to each active level crossing must:
- Treat the active level crossing as faulty or potentially faulty (as no flagmen are provided),

- If the warning equipment is operating correctly, proceed,

If the warning equipment is not operating correctly, the Driver must direct the Second Crew Member to operate the manual test switch for the level crossing,

Once an assurance has been obtained from the Second Crew Member that the level crossing warning equipment has operated correctly for a period of not less than 30 seconds and any road vehicle/pedestrians approaching the level crossing have stopped and it is safe to do so, the train may proceed over the level crossing,

As soon as possible, report the status of the level crossing to the Network Controller.

The above procedure also applies to Track Machines as listed in TA20 - ARTC Code of Practice for the Victorian Main Line Network.
