Today (Thursday 7 June) is International Level Crossing Awareness Day
Since 2009, ILCAD has been drawing railway industry representatives, road authorities, academics and more from around the world – to collaborate and raise awareness about level crossing safety.
There are around 6,000 level crossings in Britain. Every day they are used by thousands of people to cross one of the busiest rail networks in the world.
Trains can travel up to 125mph so it’s important to pay full attention and follow instructions and warnings in front of you. Nothing is more important than safety at a level crossing.
Our level crossing safety campaign #Bossingthecrossing is engaging with people who live, work and play near pedestrian level crossings throughout Britain.
At 17, Lucy was an aspiring hairdresser using the railway every day – that all changed in a split second when she was hit by a train on a level crossing. Watch her story below.
On this International Level Crossing Awareness Day, we’re asking everyone to think safety at level crossings. Lives can change in a split second, so don’t be distracted.
Look, listen and live.
