Truck drivers are being reminded to not exceed height limits when passing under electrified wires in South Australia

July 3, 2013

Truck drivers are being reminded to not exceed height limits when passing under electrified wires along the southern rail network in South Australia.

The new electrified rail network along the Adelaide to Seaford line was made live in June to commence testing of electric trains.

The overhead wires, their metallic supports and fittings carry electrical currents and are about 7.3m high.

They need to be given a clearance of 3m to ensure safety.

The northern line from Adelaide to Dry Creek will also be electrified soon.
