Safety KPIs 2012/13
This measure comprises the number of incidents where a motorised vehicle is struck by, or strikes, a train or any incident where a pedestrian or user of a non-motorised vehicle is struck and fatally injured by a train, or any near miss with a motorised vehicle or non-motorised vehicle or pedestrian. The table below shows deliberate level crossing misuse for 2012/13 compared with previous years.
There has been an 8.5 per cent decrease in the rate of significant level crossing events since 2011/12. There were nine accidental fatalities at level crossings, five of which were road vehicle occupants (including one child fatality), three pedestrian fatalities, and one cyclist fatality. Level crossing risks reduced by 5.5 per cent during 2012/13, as measured by the Level Crossing Risk Indicator Model. This represents a 22.8 per cent risk reduction in CP4 to date and we are on target to achieve a 25 per cent risk reduction for the control period. We are continuing to enhance our strategy for reducing level crossing risk, including the continuation of our annual national advertising campaign aimed at raising awareness for motorists of the dangers of deliberately misusing level crossings.
