UK: Depot safety specialist Zonegreen has completed its first installation for the freight sector, supplying five powered derailers to protect a traverser which has been installed instead of a head shunt at Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal in Northamptonshire.

DIRFT III contractor Winvic Construction commissioned Zonegreen to fit derailers on all of the tracks approaching the traverser, which was supplied by Mechan. The derailers are controlled via an operator panel situated next to the traverser, and are intended to protect staff and infrastructure from unauthorised vehicle movements, preventing trains rolling into the pit if the traverser is not in place.
