France: awareness campaign on station footpaths at grade

  • Safety
  • Level Crossings

Throughout February RFF (French railway infrastructure manager), in partnership with SNCF, is delivering an awareness campaign aimed at passengers to remind them of the safety guidelines at stops with footpaths at grade. In France, 936 stops out of 3100 provide footpaths at grade for the public. A local campaign has been launched at the stations and stops concerned to raise awareness among passengers about vigilance and safety guidelines. As part of the campaign’s positive and friendly motto, an owl encourages passengers to “keep an eye out” before crossing the railway tracks.
