  • Using level crossings

  • Level crossings enable us to cross the railway safely. Each is unique with differences in how often trains run, and the local geography.
    The things we need to think about when using a crossing depend on what type of user we are. Perhaps we usually drive over level crossings or we may be a pedestrian, a cyclist or a horse rider.
