IntroductionThe incident is related to Granville rail disaster that occurred in 1977, which is at the westernsuburb of Sydney Australia, when there was a crowded commuter train which derailed mainlyrunning into the support of the bridge on the road. The train collapsed and the people died, as aresult of this. The crowded carrier with the hauling by New South Wales include how the supportof the overhead is constructed of the steel and concrete. There is a derailed engine with thepassage that includes the bridging where the first carriage broke free from the other carriage.(Baysari et al., 2008). There has been constant travelling of the passengers and half of them weredead. The rescuers also faced the difficulty in handling the bridge weight as it was crushing thataffected the carriage with the reduced spacing to work for the survivors to get out. The otherdamage came from the gas cylinders. The leakage of the gas was under the use of the poweredrescue tools. The NSW Fire Brigade also provided with the ventilation to dispel the gas and thenthe constant film of water.Incident for the train crashes in Australia as a result of safety breachesThere have been issues related to the safety breach which include the dedicated improvement ofthe rail safety and then campaigning for the establishment with the independent forms of therailway safety ombudsman.(Reason, 2016). There are different factors which led to the breach ofthe security policy:a.The driver who was on duty at that time is the primary cause with the worn wheel on theworn rail. The locomotives could simply climb out, where speed was not a significantfactor.b.The attempt to cover and handle the tracking of the maintenance group is mainly tomeasure the tracking of the gauge in points.
