Level Crossing Awareness Day in Kent

Level crossings in Kent are being targeted to raise awareness about the importance of using them safely and correctly.

Last year there were 22 near misses in the county.

Network Rail is one of 45 organisations supporting International Level Crossing Awareness Day.

Safety teams will be at the following crossings between 8.30am and 1.30pm and 2.30pm and 4.30pm:

Simpsons level crossing, Sittingbourne

Ferry Road level crossing, Rye

Marsh farm Road level crossing, Minster

Tovil level crossing, Bower lane, Maidstone

They will be speaking to crossing users about the importance of using level crossings safely and the potential consequences of misusing crossings.
