Project Information:

There are over 6,500 level crossings across the railway network, where footpaths/roads and railway lines cross. It is important that level crossings operate safely to allow pedestrians and other road users to cross the railway line safely.

It is necessary to carry out maintenance of the level crossings to ensure that they continue to work safely for all users of the crossing.
