Improving level crossing safety through enhanced data recording and reporting: the CRC for rail innovation’s baseline rail level crossing video project

This paper describes the work being conducted in the Baseline Rail Level Crossing Video project, supported by the Australian rail industry and the Cooperative Research Centre for Rail Innovation. The paper discusses the limitations of near-miss data for analysis obtained using current level crossing occurrence reporting practices. The project is addressing these limitations through the development of a data collection and analysis system with an underlying level crossing accident causation model. An overview of the methodology and improved data recording process are described. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of benefits this project is expected to provide the Australian rail industry.
