Question: National FAQ: Please give an example of the added rule: The beginning and the end of each Gap must be at least 0.5 cm above the next surface(s) below them. (section: 3 / part: / paragraph: / sub-paragraph: / line: 6)
Response: There has to be a step down to the next 'level' surface below the beginning and end of a gap. There can't just be a line drawn on a continuous surface. The Event Supervisors should be able to take a ruler, place it at the end or beginning of a gap, vertically oriented, and measure a minimum of 0.5 cm from the surface of the track before they hit something below it. A drawing will be posted on the website.
