ARTC working overtime to ensure motorists aren't being inconvenienced too much at Denman

THE Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) is working hard to ensure motorists aren’t being inconvenienced too much by a locomotive fault, which has played havoc within the town of Denman on Friday.

From about 7.45am, the level crossings at Ogilvie and Kenilworth streets were closed, with residents stating a train had blocked the line.

ARTC general manager corporate affairs Bas Boylan admits the incident has caused “quite a disruption”.

“We’ve organised ongoing management at the site, but it’s taken longer than expected,” he said.

“Our primary focus was the Golden Highway – and making sure the traffic flowed as smoothly as possible.

“The ARTC apologies to motorists and appreciates their patience.

“The problem should be resolved soon.”
