  • Level crossings for pedestrians

  • As pedestrians we need to:

    • Concentrate – it’s easy to get distracted, especially by phones, music and conversation.
    • Stop, look and listen. Follow signs and instructions.
    • Check both ways before crossing – if there is a train coming, don’t cross.
    • Understand the warnings (lights, barriers, alarms).
    • Cross quickly, keeping children close and dogs on a lead.
