Level crossings for cyclists

How to use level crossings safely as a cyclist

As cyclists we need to:

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