Report on updating progress on railway level crossing safety

This report completes an extensive review process into railway level crossing safety by the Staysafe Committee. The first referral of this Inquiry in 2001 followed several fatal crashes at railway level crossings in southern New South Wales and resulted in a comprehensive investigation of contributing causes and suggestions for future safety improvements. The initial report findings in 2004 included systemic, collaborative and educational recommendations to address underlying deficiencies in the then policy and regulatory regime. Much has happened since the 2004 report and the Committee is pleased that many of its earlier recommendations have been adopted. As a result of evidence taken from the organisations and agencies who contributed to the earlier reviews, a further set of recommendations have been made which addresses some of the remaining issues identified as still requiring resolution. These include railway level closures, signage, coordination agreements, strategic planning, new technology and further research directions.
