It’s that time of year again where we like to join with other rail operators around the country to spread the word on rail safety. Held between August 15 and 21, Rail Safety Week is about raising awareness in communities across Australia and New Zealand about the devastating consequences of not being safe on and around railway networks.
The Right Track Hip Hop finale took place last Friday at the One Step Closer program in Armadale. This time PTA Transit Officer Lawrence Hoxey was joined by Transit Officer Jordan Keilar and the pair rap battled before Lawrence performed some of his latest tracks for the youth. It seemed everyone wanted to be involved - with One Step Closer staff rap battling it out themselves!
Chilly winter temperatures and rainy, windy weather aren’t just an annoying side-effect of the change of seasons, they also serve as a reminder that being safe around the rail network is just as important in the colder months.
