Safety performance

Access to information on level crossing safety performance and statistics. 

Level crossing safety performance analysis is conducted by the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) in their annual level crossings performance report.

Level crossing safety performance has been broadly the same for the past ten years. This is despite significant increases in road and rail traffic over the same period. However, incidence of reported near misses and crossing misuse is steadily increasing.

The RSSB annual level crossings performance report provides information on fatalities and injuries occurring during the year.

Additional information relating to safety at level crossings is included in the RSSB annual safety performance report.
