Driver answers to the review, carried out earlier this year, have been collated by the cross-industry Adhesion Working Group (AWG).
Autumn 2013 saw a number of safety incidents across the network, including SPADs, station overruns and wrong-side track circuit failures. To improve the situation for autumn 2015, the AWG asked drivers across the industry for feedback on their experiences of low adhesion.
The results have found that 90% of drivers find existing sources of information on areas of low rail adhesion "quite helpful" or "very helpful"; and that 88% thought the same of information conveyed in the daily adhesion forecast.
A fuller breakdown of the results can be found in the latest issue of Right Track, as well as information on Network Rail's community safety programme and the new electronic Rule Book.
Right Track is an industry magazine aimed at front line staff across the railway, including drivers, train managers, track workers, shunters and station staff. An electronic copy of Right Track can be found on Opsweb. To receive hard copies, please email email@example.com.
