12th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium, London, 7-12 October 2012

Following on from the success of the Olympic Games, London also recently played host to some international rail events. Two important conferences, the 12th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium GLXS and the 22nd International Railway Safety Conference (IRSC) were organised and simultaneously hosted by joint organisers RSSB, Network Rail and the Office of Rail Regulation from 8 to 12 October in London. Friday 12th October gave the opportunity for delegates to go on technical visits to understand more about recent innovations and technology at level crossings and other rail safety issues.

The 12th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium GLXS is a biennial event, first held in 1990 alternatively in Europe or on different continents.

The symposium provides an opportunity for people with responsibility in road and rail safety management and operation, research, regulation, enforcement and accident investigation to share experience and good practice for improving safety at level crossings.

During three intense days that in effect became a “World Safety Summit”, both events the 12th Global Level Crossing and Trespass Symposium GLXS and the 22nd International Railway Safety Conference (IRSC) brought together around 250 delegates from 23 countries. They both involved not only companies in the rail operating community but included also regulators, trades unions, research institutes, transport ministries, associations, investigators, consultants, European institutions....These groups all need to be aware of the particular interfaces between themselves and others. They all need to work together to achieve a high degree of safety at the road-rail interface.

The theme of the 12th Symposium was ‘Working together to improve safety and performance at level crossings’ The event in London also considered trespass on the railway, accessed from level crossings, a​s an additional safety issue.
