Abstract:

This paper explores some aspects of communication with rail stakeholders in order to manage risks associated with rail accidents involving pedestrians legitimately crossing tracks at user-controlled crossings. It considers some issues contributing to the risks including human factors, some modelling approaches as well as some potential ways of addressing the problem. Ultimately, a key factor is human behaviour. Modifying this reliably and consistently is difficult, while designing out the risk is likely to be prohibitively expensive.
