A Network Rail spokesperson has responded to calls for an inquiry into the way danger is assessed at level crossings.
We recognise that level crossings can be dangerous which is why over the past two years we have closed over 700 and are investing some £130 million in improvements. By early next year we will have made improvements at some 2,500 of the countrys 6,500 crossings and continue a national public awareness campaign to help educate people about their dangers and how to use them correctly.
