Safety education

Since 2002 we have partnered with road and rail agencies to conduct public education campaigns in regional NSW to promote level crossing safety.

Don’t rush to the other side

The ‘Don’t rush to the other side’ campaign reminds drivers to obey the controls and not rush at level crossings.

Heavy vehicles and buses – know your limits

Stopping and accelerating – It takes heavy vehicles and buses longer to clear a level crossing than other vehicles so make sure you allow extra time to clear the tracks safely.

Length – There may not be enough room on the other side of the level crossing to stop without your vehicle hanging over the tracks. Know the length of your vehicle and always check ahead before crossing so you can assess the situation. Never cross unless your vehicle can clear the track completely.

What do I do if my vehicle is stuck on the railway track? – If for any reason you become stopped on a railway track, leave your vehicle and call 000. A train may not come but it’s not worth the risk to stay in your vehicle.
