Safety

Australia's rail network is the sixth largest in the world, with 44,000km of track, with 23,000 level crossings across the network. 

Through education and awareness, TrackSAFE works to improve peoples’ knowledge, skills and attitudes about safety around tracks and level crossings, to increase public safety and avoid preventable incidents from occurring on the rail network. 

Trespass & Level Crossings

Each year, there are around 30 injuries at a level crossing or because of trespass and around 2,000 level crossing and trespass near hits each year.  

Through the Rail Safety Week campaign, rail organisations and police join forces to combat trespass and reduce incidents on the track related to trespassing.  To access the National Railway Level Crossing Safety Strategy 2017 – 2020 please click here.
