DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, Federal Railroad Administration
Final rule; delay of effective date.
The effective date for the final rule published November 30, 2011, at 76 FR 74586, and delayed on March 8, 2012, at 77 FR 13978, is further delayed until July 1, 2014.
49 CFR Part 214
This document delays the effective date of the final rule published November 30, 2011, and scheduled to take effect on July 1, 2013. The final rule mandates that roadway workers comply with specified on-track safety procedures that railroads must adopt to protect those workers from the movement of trains or other on-track equipment on “adjacent controlled track.” FRA received two petitions for reconsideration of the final rule, and five comments in response to the March 8, 2012, final rule that requested comments on the petitions for reconsideration. The petitions and comments raised a number of substantive issues requiring a detailed response. As FRA's response to those petitions and comments is still being reviewed, this document delays the effective date of the final rule until July 1, 2014.
