This week is Rail Safety Week all across New Zealand and Australia, so it’s only appropriate that QR National is using the event as an opportunity to promote their over-height detection equipment technology. Many rail crossings across Australia have power lines overhead which carry over 25,000 volts of electricity. If a truck comes into contact with those lines, it could be a disaster. The new technology works by way of detecting if a truck is too tall and alerting the vehicle before they get to the train crossing.
