The Level Crossing Working Group is one of three groups designed to ensure that all ACRI participants influence ACRI’s research direction and strategic outcomes.
The focus is to continually improve the safety of level crossing operations. Group members offer research ideas and endorse project proposals, research milestones and final outputs across a range of engineering and human factors investigations.
Working Group members are nominated by ACRI participant bodies and meet remotely, chaired by ACRI.
