National rail safety regulatory regime on track

States met today at the 2nd Standing Council on Transport and Infrastructure (SCOTI) to consider a range of major transport reforms.

Amongst the reforms were changes to fatigue management regulations under the Rail Safety National Law . The Rail Safety National Law passed through the South Australian Parliament this month enabling referring legislation to be passed in other states. This represents a significant milestone in the creation of a national rail safety regulatory regime. Frontier (Australia) assisted the National Transport Commission in assessing the alternative regulatory approaches that could be adopted to manage fatigue risk.

Other reforms considered were changes to the heavy vehicle charging system.
