Guidance on safe pedestrian crossings near passenger rail stations
The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) has issued a report providing implementation guidance on strategies and methods to prevent pedestrian incidents, injuries, and fatalities at or near passenger rail stations. The report recommends that passenger rail operators use risk-based hazard analysis methods to identify methods and treatments to improve pedestrian safety at rail crossings. The report provides illustrations of many of these treatments. See our earlier post on the draft document.
