This Standard provides a consistent approach to the management of light rail vehicle movements within a light rail network. This Standard covers line of sight operation, signalling and indications used on light rail networks. This Standard does not provide guidance or instruction on road signals used for road traffic purposes.

This Standard applies to new networks and may be applied against existing light rail and modified light rail networks.

This Standard is part of the AS 7601 (Light rail and road interfaces) series. This series is currently under development.

This Standard specifies the minimum requirements for design, interpretation and use of visual driver cues and signalling systems that permit the safe movement of light rail vehicles in light rail networks. This includes:

  1. line of sight operation;
  2. pavement markings or stud markings;
  3. traffic signals;
  4. light rail signals;
  5. other indicators.
