Level crossings for pedestrians

How to use level crossings safely as a pedestrian

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). Download the document or view the interactive guide below.
  • Cross quickly, keeping children close and dogs on a lead.
