Safety of railway crossings


The Dutch Safety Board has launched a thematic investigation into the safety of railway crossings in the Netherlands. The Board has taken this decision following a number of recent collisions on railway crossings , including the accident on a crossing in Harlingen, which killed two people on Monday, 27 March 2017.
The Board intends to investigate whether and how safety on railway crossings can be improved and how the announced remediation of unguarded railway crossings is taking place. The exact questions, scope and design of the investigation will be determined in the coming weeks.
