A maximum TEMPORARY SPEED RESTRICTION of 40km/h applies between Maroona Signal 8 to the end of Train Order Working at Portland Signal 1.

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 2878/2020 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.
