The development of veloSTRAIL closed flange level crossing system

This paper is a report on the development of the veloSTRAIL closed flange level crossing system developed by Gummiwerk Kraiburg GmbH. It also includes a summary of current international and Australian flangeway gap standards and past studies into safety at pedestrian level crossings. Results of current veloSTRAIL field trials as well as information on the reliability testing of the system indicate a high level performance in providing a safe crossing system for pedestrians, wheelchairs, and cyclists. The interchangeable wearing part provides an economic advantage over previous evolutions of veloSTRAIL to rail authorities as the whole inner panel does not need to be replaced as wear occurs.
