Hi All,

Just looking for some opinions on what others feel is the correct level of handback when re-adjusting copers with no assosiated track works. My civils collegues are working on the assumption that only the form 005 needs to be completed. I however belive that the track A-G needs to be completed by a competent Handback engineer due to checking and maintaining the clearnance and strepping distance to trains.

The standards are a bit vauge in terms of multi disaplinary works reading the Civ standards it only asks for form 005 however reading the TRK standards required Track Handback.

My argument is that if they cannot go into design and or are outside the construction tollerance with no time to re adjust before re opening to traffic how do they know if the adjusted copers are safe for trains to pass.

I welcome any thoughts and disscusions.
