Railways: Level Crossings

Volume 710: debated on Monday 18 May 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the consultation on improving road safety will include the misuse of railway level crossings. [HL3508]

The Department for Transport published on 21 April a consultation document on a new road safety strategy.

Although this made no mention of railway level crossings, the Road Safety Act 2006 gave the Secretary of State new powers to improve safety around railway level crossings, either following a request from the crossing operator or at his own instigation.
