Zonegreen has installed a siding warning system at Doncaster Carr to counter the risks posed by work being carried out on the service spine; where tasks such as CET extraction, fuelling and sanding are regularly undertaken.
Zonegreen’s siding warning system alerts personnel to imminent train movements, allowing them to reach a position of safety. Inbound vehicles are detected by a treadle switch that activates beacon sounders, providing audible and visual warnings to staff. Outbound movement alerts can be activated from either a local control panel or remotely from the Person in Charge office.
The siding warnings compliments the existing Depot Personnel Protection System (DPPS) Zonegreen installed in 2016 at Doncaster, increasing safety in all areas of the facility.
