type Press release

Forty-two signals were passed at danger in February, the latest monthly SPAD report from Railway Safety shows.

There were four more SPADs than in February 2000 but two fewer than the average of February figures for the past six years.

The SPAD rate has now been below the six-year average for 19 months however the report says: "The downward trend has levelled off."

The report, the 17th to be produced, says the many initiatives that have led to a lengthy and sustained improvement may have reached the limits of their effectiveness. It says: "Control measures initiated during the last two years must continue to be applied to ensure improvements achieved are not lost."

Thirteen SPADs were at multi-SPAD signals (two SPADs within the past five years), and 21 occurred at signals with a previous SPAD record. These percentage figures are in line with previous months.

February saw five starting against signal SPADs, one of which was at a platform.
