Over the past few years, there is one person killed and close to one seriously injured
every day on level crossings. Therefore, SAFER-LC aims to improve safety and minimize risk by developing a fully-integrated cross-modal set of innovative solutions and tools for the proactive management and design of level-crossing infrastructure.
Main objectives are to
develop innovative solutions to enhance the safety of level crossings for road- as well as rail-users.
demonstrate how these new technological and non-technological solutions can be integrated, validate their feasibility and evaluate their performance taking into account, the level crossing user’s perspective and behaviour.
deliver a bundle of recommended technical specifications, human processes and organizational and legal frameworks for implementation.
develop a toolbox accessible through a user-friendly interface which will integrate all the project results and solutions to help both rail and road managers to improve safety at level crossings
