  • Level crossings for cyclists

  • As cyclists we need to:

    • Consider dismounting – especially when you’re about to cross the tracks diagonally.
    • Follow signs and instructions.
    • Check both ways before crossing – if there is a train coming, don’t cross.
    • Remain stationary until all the warnings stop.
    • Check that our exit is clear before crossing.
