RESTRAIL European project is coming to an end and will hold its Final Conference in Paris, UIC HQ,

on 18 September 2014 from 9.00 to 16.00.

This will be the occasion to learn more about this successful project, its results and the way forward.

The aim of the RESTRAIL (REduction of Suicides and Trespasses on RAILway property) project is to reduce the occurrence of suicides and trespass on railway property as well as the service disruption and other consequences these events cause, by providing the rail industry with an analysis and identification of cost effective prevention and mitigation measures.

The RESTRAIL toolbox, which is the final output of the project will be presented as well as the various field tests which were implemented within the project. The guidance material produced is designed to:

  • lead decision-makers through the process of selecting from the range of preventative and mitigation measures,
  • provide more detailed guidance on the implementation of those measures and provide a framework for collecting and structuring information in order to feed an accessible and documented database on measures implementation and efficiency across the rail community and beyond.

Do not hesitate to circulate this information around you.

We look forward to meeting you in Paris.
