INTELLIGENT GRADE CROSSINGS: THE CASE STUDY OF RFF/SNCF (FRENCH NATIONAL RAILWAYS)

Highway grade crossings have always been of concern not only to railroad operators but also governments and local authorities. This paper looks at a project designed and developed by the French National Railways (RFF/SNCF) as one solution to try to solve the problem. The basic idea behind the project is to consider Intelligent Highway Grade Crossings, rather that the much more expensive solution of building a bridge over or tunnel under the railway line. The background, the economic justification, and the project itself are described in the paper.
