The boards act as a temporary indicator to drivers/operators to ‘Stop and check the points before proceeding’, thus reducing the risk of damaging the points. The boards are situated at the Trailing end of the S&C worksite to ensure that vehicle operators and Crane Controllers are aware of the direction of the switches.
