Network Rail warns pedestrians not to risk their lives on level crossings

networkrail-placeholderNetwork Rail and the British Transport Police  are warning pedestrians not to risk their lives at level crossings after shocking CCTV footage emerged of two incidents of dangerous misuse at level crossings over the last month.

 

The two incidents, in London and Yorkshire, come just weeks after Network Rail and the BTP issued a stark warning about staying safe at level crossings after a man pushing a bicycle was almost killed by a train at Ducketts level crossing in Pudsey, Leeds.

 

The first incident, which occurred at Grove Park level crossing on the evening of 22 December in Chiswick, west London, shows the barriers coming down while lights flash to warn that a train is approaching. However, once the barriers are down, one pedestrian pushes through the barrier to cross, followed by another shortly after.
