USA: Transit safety consultation imminent

30 Sep

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is inviting comment on the way in which the agency’s new transit safety authority will achieve its objectives.

Publication of an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) on Safety and Transit Asset Management in the Federal Register is imminent. This is required by the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). Clearly interface issues at level crossings and at traffic-signalled intersections with other road traffic need to be addressed within the safety management system of any transit system that intersects with highways or runs along them.

Watch out for the Federal Register ANPR this week.
