There are more than 6,000 level crossings on the rail network in Britain. Though we have one of the safest rail networks in Europe, accidents and near misses with trains still occur. That’s why Network Rail is investing more than £100m as part of our Railway Upgrade Plan to improve level crossing safety across the nation. We also invest in a wide-ranging safety awareness programme, working with national and local organisations, to make using level crossings safer and to help people understand how to use them correctly.
