Drawing on experience and expertise from across the sector, the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board is committed to further improvements to what is already one of the safest forms of public transport.
Established as part of the sector’s response to a Rail Accident Investigation Branch report into the tragic 2016 Croydon derailment that claimed seven lives, we’re building on the significant work already undertaken by a safety steering group established by the sector’s representative organisation, UK Tram.
With strong support from across the wider light rail community, and funding from the Department of Transport, the LRSSB is now ensuring the implementation of the RAIB’s recommendations and exploring innovative ways to further enhance safety on existing and future networks.
New guidance aimed at reducing and managing the risks associated with stray electrical currents on tramways and other light rail systems has been published by the LRSSB.
