In order to train people on level crossing, Western Railway observes safety awareness week

In order to bring awareness regarding safety at railway level crossings among the public, Western Railway observes safety awareness week from June 1 to 7, to mark the International Level Crossing (LC) Awareness Day on June 7, at all six divisions to educate people about the dangers of crossing unmanned railway level crossings without caution.

For the safety of railway passengers as well as road users, it is necessary for road vehicles to always stop before a railway crossing and watch carefully for the incoming train from either sides and then cross the railway level crossing safely.

According to Ravinder Bhakar, Chief Public Relations Officer of Western Railway, India is a member country of ‘International Union of Railways’ which is celebrating June 7 as ‘International Level Crossing Awareness Day.’
