Villeneuve-Triage english summary

publié le 17 février 2011

On 1 March 2007, at 6:45 a.m. in the station of Villeneuve-Triage, on SNCF RER line D, a female passenger climbed down on to track 2bis alongside platform 1 for reasons unknown at the same time as train 126520 travelling towards Paris at 108 kph entered the station. She was hit by the train despite emergency braking by the driver and died immediately.

The recommendations made following the technical investigation concern two categories of measures :
- remind users that if it is necessary to cross the tracks, they must not climb down on to the tracks but take the underground passages or bridges intended for this purpose ;
- review the layout of signs, the maintenance and cleanliness of signs and warning devices.
