This year’s ILCAD launch conference will be held remotely, hosted by Network Rail at the National Railway Museum of York.

Network Rail and the International Union of Railways (UIC) are pleased to invite you to the launch conference for the 13th International Level Crossing Awareness Day (ILCAD) on 10 June.

The ILCAD 2021 worldwide campaign will be maintained in a scaled-down format, similar to in 2020, due to the pandemic. Around 40 countries typically participate in the campaign, either by promoting it on their websites or on social media or by organising a range of activities around ILCAD.

Should your company wish to participate in the campaign and mark ILCAD on 10 June, please contact Isabelle Fonverne at UIC.

The ILCAD 2021 theme is “Distraction” with the motto “Distraction kills!”

Register for the conference at http://www.ilcad.org. The closing date for registration is 7 June.

Further information, including the conference programme, will be posted shortly on the ILCAD website. Please see

The ILCAD event is part of the UIC events organised to promote the European Year of Rail: https://uic.org/year-of-rail/
