Anger at safety delay after OAP drives on to live high speed rail

Daily Echo: Anger at roads chiefs safety delay after OAP drives on to live rail Anger at roads chiefs safety delay after OAP drives on to live rail

IT was a disastrous error that could have led to tragedy.

An 85-year-old motorist was half-way across a level crossing when she suddenly veered off the road and along a high-speed railway line, narrowly missing the live rail and halting trains.

But highway chiefs have taken a year to devise a scheme aimed at preventing anything similar happening again.

Campaigners have condemned the delays surrounding the project, which includes new road signs either side of the barrier-controlled crossing at Brockenhurst station.

Denis Fryer, of the South Hampshire Rail Users’ Group, said: “It’s very poor.

“The risks attached to any incident involving an electrified rail are huge.

“The county council seems to have taken an awfully long time to address something that should have been dealt with pretty quickly.”

 

The incident happened a year ago today. A New Milton pensioner was giving her 20-year-old grandson a lift when she mistook the line for the entrance to the station car park.

Instead of stopping or reversing, she drove 80 yards up the track and ended up on a set of points near the end of platform two.

She and her grandson escaped unhurt after rail employees quickly switched off the power.

Network Rail said trains were in no danger because the crossing barriers were up, which meant all the signals in the area were on red.

The gran was reported for careless driving, but British Transport Police dropped the case after she handed in her licence.

The proposed new directional signs aim to prevent anyone else making the same error.

Parish council chairman Russell Horne welcomed the scheme, but called for the inclusion of a “non-standard”

sign highlighting the position of the track.

“At the moment there’s nothing to indicate that there’s a railway there,”

he said.

Cllr Horne defended the time taken to implement the measures.

He said: “It’s always a lot better when things are done more speedily, but the county council has had to carry out a proper process of consultation and consideration.”

A Network Rail spokesman said: “What happened at Brockenhurst was incredibly unusual. It’s not the sort of thing we see every day.”

South West Trains declined to comment.

“At the moment there’s nothing to indicate that there’s a railway there,”

Apart from the barriers. And the signal box. And the warning lights. And the track.

The problem was a little old lady, who shouldn't have been driving anyway. She turned onto the track, panicked, and CARRIED ON DRIVING! Do you honestly think another sign would have stopped this happening?

Exactly what I was about to say. If there's one thing I've learned in my life, it's that you can make things as idiot-proof as you like, there will always a bigger idiot than you've prepared for.

I live in the house next to the level crossing and am still amazed by this incident.

The track is clearly visible for at least 150 yards in each direction from the middle of the crossing and I cant understand how it could possibly be mistaken for anything else. As for the grandson.........

Frankly I doubt it is worth spending money to prevent a re-occurance. If you did you might as well put barriers up on every cliff, at every quayside, by every river etc just on the off chance of a 1 in a million event.

If they want to prevent accidents, some cash spent installing number plate cameras to stop cars "running" the gates would be a good idea!

A few hundred yards south of this crossing a motorcyclist riding a powerful machine chose to overtake at speed on a blind bend, and met an HGV on the other side of it. Unfortunately the driver could do nothing to avoid the collision.

But a test of some description at 75 and every 5 years after that would be a good idea.
