LEVEL CROSSING RISK ASSESSMENTS

AEGIS has a dedicated team of engineers skilled at producing suitable and sufficient level crossing risk assessments as mandated by Network Rail and the ORR. We have developed a bespoke level crossing risk assessment methodology that reduces the time to undertake the overall risk assessment process, which includes:

  • •    Site surveying of any crossing type;
  • •    Identifying compliance issues with existing Level Crossing Orders, Network Rail Standards and the ORR Railway Safety Publication 7;
  • •    Considering environmental factors (including flood risks);
  • •    Taking into account the effect of local businesses and current ground plans/proposals;
  • •    Analysing traffic flow over the crossing (a 9 Day Survey is carried out);
  • •    Detailing options assessments for analysis using ALCRM;
  • •    Review historical misuse and trespass information over the crossing;
  • •    Facilitating optioneering workshops.

Our detailed risk assessment reports provide conclusions and recommendations that:

  • •    Detail the preferred option for the crossing considering risk reduction, operational savings and justified expenditure;
  • •    Discuss the residual risks and additional controls for the preferred option;
  • •    Consider all closure options including via over-bridge, underpass or diversionary route;
  • •    Provide recommendations for further risk reduction and improvements at the crossing.
